Hiking in the Stubai valley

Over 850 km of trails alone lead up into the fascinating alpine world of the Stubai Alps. The breathtaking views over the impressive panorama reward every climb. There are also four gondola lifts, an exciting way for hikers and mountaineers to get to the starting points of many of the tours. 

Enjoy hiking, scaling the mountains, or test your own limits. You can go on various themed trails in Stubaital: from the Pleasure Trail, the Franz Senn Trail, the Reflection Trail and the Alpine Plants and Panorama Trail to the White Water Trail and the Glacier Trail. Individual audio guides provide background information on each trail and, new for this year, audio guides are also available for the Reflection and Chapel trails. The 120 km long Stubai high route trail also provides a breathtaking experience. Here, you can spend several days trekking from one chalet to another or take on certain sections of the route in day trips. There is no better way to discover nature's simplicity and beauty!

Like an eagle

Experience a sense of freedom - anyone can enjoy this intoxicating atmosphere from either of the two viewing platforms in Stubaital. On the Stubai glacier, the largest glacial skiing area in Austria, you will find the TOP OF TYROL summit platform. At 3,210 metres, you can let your gaze wander across the 109 three-thousand metre peaks around you - an unparalleled nature experience. 

Schlick 2000

The path to the viewing platform in the Schlick 2000 hiking area is a highlight in itself: the short path to the panoramic view is lined with unusual seating designed by local Stubai artists. At 2,160 metres the "Stubai vista" opens up a breathtaking view over the valley. A nature trail also provides useful and instructive information on the rocks, animals and plants native to the surroundings. In addition, the panoramic lake and a trail that can be walked barefooted make this a great destination for families.

Serlesbahn

With mountain fens, gentle meadows and untouched nature, the hiking area around the Serlesbahn fascinates visitors to the Stubai valley. In particular the "Serles" mountain, which takes its name from the royal figure of Stubai legend, invite you take a relaxing or thrilling hike. The Serlesblick platform, which you pass on the hike from the mountain station Koppeneck to the highest monastery in Europe "Maria Waldrast", offers a breathtaking view of the imposing "Serles" mountain. 

ELFER

The hiking region around the Elfer lifts is not just a local recreational area for the greater region of Innsbruck, but is also particularly popular with guests. Flat and steep, short and long hiking routes promise the perfect hike for young and old, ramblers and ambitious mountain climbers, as well as families. 

Chalets and mountain pastures

Sustainably-managed chalets and mountain pastures invite passers-by along all the trails. In these rustic surroundings you can fortify yourself with a hearty meal of regional delicacies and spend glorious hours day-dreaming in nature's beauty spots.

Climbing

15 via ferrata and 10 climbing crags present sports-minded visitors with ever new challenges. For an unusual adrenaline kick, try the valley's high rope course.
