The ideal holiday weather will become even more stable during the following days. The risk of thunderstorms will be low during the next few days and the weather will remain bright. It will stay warm.

The "AXAMER LIZUM" CIRCULAR HIKING TRAIL takes you on a hike at the foot of the majestic "Kalkkögel" mountain range. The trail is easy to walk and gives you the opportunity to experience Tyrolean nature up close at alpine heights. Several educational display boards line the route and provide information about the local flora and fauna. The route also passes two memorials near the barn of the old Lizum Alm mountain hut: one commemorates mountaineers from the local mountain association who lost their lives here, the other the crash of an American bomber near Marchreisenspitze peak during World War II.

The "AXAMER LIZUM" CIRCULAR HIKING TRAIL has a total length of about 3.5 km and is particularly suitable for families, senior citizens who enjoy walking and Nordic walkers.

The Innauen nature reserve is home to strictly protected plants and animal species. On the route up to the pilgrimage church of Maria Locherboden, you can learn a lot about the effects of the dry and hot climate on the sunny, south-facing, limestone slopes of the Fiechter Köpfl. Did you know, for example, that "feather grass", a plant that is otherwise only native to Mediterranean countries and Asian steppes, grows on the dry slope below Locherboden?

This circular route starts from the car park at the recycling centre in Wildermieming and leads through sparse forests near Wildermieming and the Gerhardhof campsite. Along the way, 10 impressive display boards show the connection between environmental factors and adaptations in the forest. They also provide information about how glaciation, which ended 10,000 years ago, shaped the mountain forest habitat and compare the rich life found in a natural stream with the reduced diversity of a controlled waterway.
