Relax and unwind on idyllic hiking trails. Three viewing platforms offer magnificent views and there are numerous places to stop for a break or a bite to eat. You can also do a via ferrata or scale the mountains on one of the many alpine trails. Obsteig offers numerous opportunities for both mountaineers and more leisurely hikers. You can follow a leisurely trail, for example, to the "Schöne Aussicht" viewpoint for wonderful views of the Mieming Plateau.

Obsteig is also a tranquil destination in winter: you can enjoy cross-country skiing on well-groomed trails, snowshoeing, winter hikes, ski touring and tobogganing. The family-friendly Grünberg also offers a varied winter playground for children. Or visit one of the nine ski areas in Olympia SkiWorld Innsbruck.

Obsteig is just over half an hour away from Innsbruck by car. It lies at the heart of one of the most beautiful landscapes in Tyrol: lush and green in summer, golden in autumn and boasting a sunny microclimate.

The burning larches

In late autumn, when the trees in the valley are already shedding their leaves, the Mieming Plateau puts on an impressive display. The many larches growing there turn into a sea of yellow and orange treetops. Unfortunately there is no exact date for this spectacle of nature. If you visit the Innsbruck region at the beginning of November, you have a good chance of seeing the burning larches.

Kinderland Grünberg children's ski area

In winter, the Grünberg is a children's paradise. The gentle slope is ideal for tobogganing and learning to ski or snowboard. Plus, it is surrounded by idyllic natural landscapes with lots of cross-country skiing, hiking and ski touring routes. A charming and welcoming mountain hut, the Grünberg-Alm, is located right by the slope. This is the perfect place to warm up, relax and enjoy. There is also an adventure playground located directly next to the hut.
