Forecast

A weak ridge of high pressure will dominate our weather on Wednesday. It will dissipate the medium and high clouds, but the sun will not be strong enough to chase away all cloud in the valleys, where a few fog patches will probably persist. All in all, the weather will be pleasant, however.

Tendency

What is barely noticeable on Wednesday will be evident on Thursday and Friday: the foehn is coming!

The Goetheweg trail starts right next to the Hafelekar mountain lift station and leads east along the ridge. After a few short ascents and descents, hikers come to the Mühlkarscharte where they cross the ridge and continue along the northern face to the Mandlscharte. After a short descent, the landscape changes. Alpine meadows and mountain pines form the backdrop for the last section to the Pfeishütte mountain hut. The hut is located over 1,900 metres above sea level in a pristine alpine setting with the rugged peaks of the Rumer Spitz, the Stempeljoch and the Bachofen rising up all around it. The walking time from Hafelekar to the mountain hut is 2-2.5 hours (one way!). The walking time including the return journey to Hafelekar is approx. 4.5-5 hours. All other route options take considerably longer.   Return walk from the Pfeishütte mountain hut Route option 1: Via the Goetheweg trail back to the Hafelekar or a bit further down to the Seegrube. The Nordkettenbahnen lifts to Innsbruck can be accessed from Hafelekar and from the Seegrube.   Route option 2: Anyone who would like to return a different way can take the route down from the Pfeishütte mountain hut via Kreuzjöchl. The route goes via Kreuzjöchl, the Vintlalm mountain hut and the Rumer Alm mountain hut and ends in the holiday village of Rum. There are buses from Rum to Innsbruck.   Route option 3: From the Pfeishütte mountain hut to the Arzler Alm mountain hut via the Arzler Scharte. The descent from Arzler Alm to Hungerburg takes 30 to 40 minutes. From Hungerburg, it is possible to take public transport or the Hungerburgbahn funicular to the city centre.   Route option 4: From the Pfeishütte mountain hut, along scree fields, up to the Stempeljoch and then down from the ridge. Without losing altitude, a trail branches off to the right into a widely spaced larch stand. The trail meets the road by the highest house in the Hall Valley and follows it to the former "Herrenhäuser"manor houses. It is possible to take a shortcut via the former salt mine huts. From the "Herrenhäuser", the trail turns right and continues down to St. Magdalena, an alpine guesthouse and former monastery nestled in the mountains. For anyone who doesn't want to continue on foot: at the weekend during hiking season, a shuttle bus runs from here to Absam every hour (fees apply). From Absam, it is possible to take a public bus to Innsbruck.

This is a great hike for the whole family in the Sender 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.

This hike starts from the car park above Telfs and initially leads past the barriers and along a relatively flat, wide forest road to the Straßberghaus mountain hut. From there, continue straight on past the hut and shortly afterwards, follow the signs for the Alplbachsteig "Steinernes Meer". Continue along the path as it follows a leisurely route along the stream and then finally snakes its way up through the forest to the Neue Alplhütte mountain hut. (For the hike back down, you can either double back along the same route or follow the forest road.) Information about the "Steinernes Meer" (Rocky Sea): The name of this area comes from a powerful rockfall that occurred on the 23 March 2012 near the so-called "Tote Wand" (Dead Wall) – the southern part of the "Hohe Wand" (2,721 m). Roughly 114,000 cubic metres of rock thundered two-and-a-half kilometres down into the Alpbach Valley. The path that leads up along the stream was lovingly restored by hand in summer 2015 by Hansjörg Randl from Telfs.

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.

This hike starts directly behind the Pfaffenhofer Alm mountain hut (=Widdersbergalm) and leads towards Sonnkarköpfl, zigzagging ever higher up the mountain. After about 45 minutes, you reach the turnoff to the Sonnkarköpfl summit. Once the trail leaves the forest, it continues over barren terrain, first on a north-facing slope and later through a corrie on a south-western slope up to the summit. From the Sonnkarköpfl peak, hike back the same way until you reach the turnoff that leads east to the "Oberhofer Melkalm". This section takes you over vast fields of alpine roses and leads downhill to the Sonnkarhütte mountain hut (not open to the public) and then on over alpine meadows to the Oberhofer Melkalm mountain hut. Finally, take the Bettlersteig trail that starts behind the hut and follow it back to the starting point at the Pfaffenhofer Alm mountain hut (=Widdersbergalm). Tips | Notes:It is possible to get a driving permit (fees apply) from the local authority in Pfaffenhofen or at the Pfaffenhofer Alm mountain hut. This saves you 2.5 hours of walking time. The journey is possible in a normal car. Please note: after heavy rainfall, the road is difficult to drive and an all-terrain vehicle is recommended.
