1.427 KM 1.427 KM
easy easy
Walk in our ancestors' footsteps! The "Hohe Birga" in Birgitz is the only open-air archaeological site in the immediate vicinity of Innsbruck. This excavation site of a pre-Christian Raeti settlement is located about 500 metres as the crow flies from the centre of Birgitz and is quick and easy to reach. The tour starts from the Rätermuseum (Raetic Museum) in Birgitz and initially leads along a relatively flat path past beautiful and well-maintained farmhouses and gardens before continuing slightly downhill along a paved road to the Hohe Birga excavations. The climb up the excavation hill and the route back up to the starting point in Birgitz are a little steeper. Before or after the hike, it is well worth visiting the Rätermuseum (Raetic Museum) located in the village hall on the village square in Birgitz. There isn't anywhere to stop for refreshments along the way so it's very important to take enough to drink with you. A small rest area is located directly at the archaeological site.
