A family hike in the Axamer Lizum hiking area with great views of the Kalkkögel mountains, the Inn Valley and the Nordkette mountain range. Two options are available for the ascent. Option 1 (easier and faster): From Axamer Lizum car park, head towards the bottom lift station for Birgitzköpfl and then take the double chairlift (fees apply) up to the Birgitzköpflhaus mountain hut. Option 2 (longer route): From Axamer Lizum car park, head towards the bottom lift station of the Birgitzköpfllift chairlift and then continue to the avalanche barrier. From there, a quite steep path turns off to the left and leads uphill to the Birgitzköpflhaus mountain hut (walking time about 1.25 hours, 460 vertical metres). From there, a trail leads downhill to the right, below the Zwölferspitze and Pfriemeswand peaks, towards Muttereralm (walking time about 45 min, 429 vertical metres). The route then continues, following signs to the Götzner Alm mountain hut (walking time about 30 min, 66 vertical metres) and the Birgitzeralm mountain hut (walking time about 45 min, 266 vertical metres). To return to the starting point, follow the route slightly downhill along the Butterbründlsteig towards Axamer Lizum.

Plenty of benches await along the way where you can stop for a relaxing break and the trail offers unique views of the Inn Valley. From the Rosskogelhütte, you can take the ski slope or the forest road back to the starting point. If the gondolas are closed, you can start the hike at Stiglreith car park (fees apply). From there, it takes 1.5 hours to walk to the Rosskogelhütte mountain hut. Highlights: A popular high-altitude hike above the tree line, wonderful when the alpine roses are in bloom in June, passes a summit cross and has unique views of the Inn Valley and the surrounding mountains.

This is a great hike for the whole family in the Senders Valley above the Kemater Alm and offers wonderful panoramic views of the Kalkkögel mountain range. The hike starts at the Kemater Alm, a mountain hut serving food and drink that is easy to reach by car from Grinzens via a forest toll road (€ 3). From there, you can already see your destination – the large and striking summit cross on Sonntagsköpfl peak. The hike leads past the rushing Griesbach stream and then continues up to the Adolf Pichler Hütte, another mountain hut that serves food and drink at an altitude of 1,977 m above sea level. From this hut, a narrow path leads up through a sparse Swiss stone pine forest to Sonntagsköpfl summit. The entire hike up to the summit cross takes a total of about 1.5 hours and is rewarded with wonderful views of the Kalkkögel mountain range and the Kemater Alm mountain hut 400 m below.  The hike back follows the same route.

The Ghost Trail in Oberperfuss

This hike is particularly popular with children. The ideal starting point: the bottom lift station of the Bergbahnen Oberperfuss gondola. From there, you can take the gondola up to an altitude of over 1,500 metres above sea level. Once at the top of the gondola, walk downhill for a few minutes until you reach an idyllic reservoir. If you walk around the reservoir to the south, you'll come to a forest road. Take the road and then turn left to continue down to the junction for Restaurant Sulzstich.  At this point, you'll see the first of the "tree beards", which are upside down spruces with carved faces. At the push of a button, these trees tell authentic stories by students from the primary schools in Oberperfuss. Some of the "tree beards" pose puzzles instead of telling stories. If you can solve the puzzles, you will be rewarded with magic & power stones when you get back to the bottom lift station. You'll also be given a booklet with all of the stories and puzzles to enjoy reading after your walk.  This trail is the ultimate family highlight. Hikers are accompanied by excited children's voices, storytelling and lovely walks from puzzle to puzzle. Along the way, a slide, a rest area and a barefoot trail provide even more variety. After a good one and a half kilometres, the trail comes to Stiglreith where children can jump around on the bouncy castle and play on the slide in front of the panoramic restaurant.   If the gondola is not running, you can drive to the starting point at Stiglreith car park, which is located at an altitude of 1,383 metres above sea level. Fees apply to park in the car park. It can be reached via the panoramic road that branches off to the right from Oberperfuss Berg. From that approach, the hike past the talking tree beards leads from the Stiglreith mountain lift station to the reservoir at Sulzstich and back along the road to the starting point. Fees apply to park in the car park at Stiglreith. The road to Stiglreith is closed to cars from 1 November until 31 March.

After walking north for a few minutes, you pass a small power station and come to the start of the path that runs through the Zimmerberg Gorge. The path leads along the stream for most of the way and comes to a rest area with a table and benches. The route leads over small bridges and up impressive wooden steps that zigzag along the cliff face before later crossing a 30-metre-long steel cable suspension bridge over the Griesbach.  After a few metres, you’ll come to a wide forest road. From there, follow the signs towards Lehen. The route leads gently downhill and then branches off to the right into the forest. The path soon turns into a gravel road and then finally a paved road just before Lehen. Walk past the first houses and continue down into the valley towards the "Sonnensiedlung" district. At the fork in the road above the Sonnensiedlung district, turn right and continue straight on until you reach "Am Sonnenberg" a few minutes later. Once there, take a sharp left to head south and then turn onto the second side road. At the end of the side road, a small path leads back down to the starting point.

easy easy
The Larchsteig is a short circular hike on the edge of the village of Obsteig with a focus on "the Larch meadow experience at the historic Herdstein". If you take your time, you can discover lots of interesting information about the larch itself, as well the history of the larch forests, how they are managed and their inhabitants. The highlights include glacial erratics, which are large boulders from the Ice Age, and a large stone with a circle on it, known as the "Kreisstein", which still remains a mystery. The duration of the route depends entirely on who is doing it: runners only need 15 minutes, hikers can complete it in 45 minutes, interested hikers may need two hours and anyone who really wants to savour it should allow half a day.
