Exploring the easy hiking trails in the mountains around Innsbruck is a wonderful way to spend your holiday and also lots of fun for children. Select a route from our network of family-friendly trails. Most family hikes include special highlights for children – either along the route or at the destination. For example playgrounds, an enchanted forest or flowing water to splash around in and discover nature.
From the car park, we hike across the bridge over the Senderbach stream and then follow the forest road for a short distance. A few metres after the first left-hand bend, we turn right to follow the shortcut along a wide, cleared path through the trees, crossing the road once more and continuing up to the private Salfains Alm mountain hut (1,738 m). From the hut, we hike diagonally uphill to a small wooden cross, before continuing west through a small bowl and then out to the right onto the wide plateau that is home to the romantic Schönangerl/Salfainssee biotope and the Salfains hill (2,000 m). If you hike north for about 300 m from there, you will come to a small summit cross located just below the hill with magnificent views of the Inn Valley.
Descent: hike back along the ascent route as described above or take the route via the Kemater Alm mountain hut, where you can stop for a break and a bite to eat.
