The Sellraintal and Stubai Alps

High-Alpine Climbing amongst the Three-Thousanders

Historic, high-alpine landscapes characterise the Sellraintal hiking area, which stretches all the way to the Stubai Alps. Many challenging routes make this a worthwhile location for experienced mountaineers, and the villages of Sellrain, gries and St Sigmund even carry the moniker of ‘climbing villages’. These are the starting points for fascinating one-day and multi-day tours, and a perfect way to experience alpine wildlife up close. A further bonus is that at this altitude, hay-fever sufferers can breathe easily, due to the lack of pollen and dust.

Information about the Area

  • Views of countless three-thousanders
  • Located between 900 and 3,500m above sea level

The "Sellrainer Hüttenrunde" is a high alpine, multi-day, circular hut hike that leads through the entire Kühtai-Sellrain Valley region. There are plenty of ways to join and enjoy the trail, which shows the full variety of the Sellrain mountains from the huge, glacier-covered granite gneiss mountains in the upper Lüsens Valley to the gentle hills around the Fotscher Valley and the mighty Acherkogel high above the Tyrolean Oberland region. Seven days, 80 kilometres and 5,700 vertical metres – the Sellrain Valley Mountain Hut Tour is a truly special mountaineering experience. The tour starts in Sellrain at an altitude of 900 metres above sea level and climbs right up to Schöntalspitze peak, the highest point of the tour, at an altitude of over 3,000 metres above sea level. The tour is split into seven stages and passes numerous mountain huts along the way, where you can enjoy delicious Tyrolean cuisine, rustic accommodation and rejuvenating tranquillity. The tour stops at the following mountain huts: Potsdamer Hütte, Westfalenhaus, Pforzheimer Hütte, Schweinfurter Hütte, Bielefelder Hütte and Dortmunder Hütte. The route requires a lot of stamina and mountain experience. Detailed information about the various stages can be found at www.innsbruck.info/huettenrunde
