The Eagle Walk

Eagles wherever you look! There's one on Tyrol's coat of arms, and they circle high over the mountains. It's even possible to see the shadow of one on a hiking map, as the course of the Eagle Walk is comparable to the silhouette of an eagle's wings. The 'King of the Skies' has given its name to the unique long-distance trail crossing through north Tyrol, a trail over 200km in length, with high altitudes and 24 stages. At its heart lies the Tyrolean capital of Innsbruck.

Eagle Walk stages around Innsbruck

Hikers can discover the Capital of the Alps and its surroundings via five central stages. One example would be the Karwendel massif with food and rest at the Hafelekar. A treat after many difficult stages is the trail across the mainly flat Zirbenweg between Patscherkofel and Glungezer, a trail through one of the oldest pine forests in the Alps. A joy for your sense of smell to behold and a guaranteed wonderful view over the Inn Valley.

Innsbruck as starting point

24 stages require plenty of time and fitness. But shorter variations of a couple of days also guarantee a wonderful hiking experience. Thanks to its easy access to the Karwendel area, Innsbruck is a perfect starting point. Cable cars are ready to transport guests from the city centre to the top of the 2,000m-high Nordkette within 20 minutes, where the Hafelekar mountain station is situated directly on the Eagle Walk. From here, you can begin your walk with a commanding view over Innsbruck, or into the Karwendel and a view over mountain peaks and rock faces. Both are, naturally, recommended. 

Eagle walk stages

How many stages does the Eagle Walk really have? Some sources say 24, while others count as many as 30. The Great Eagle Walk through north Tyrol stretches across 24 stages, but the higher number includes the smaller Eagle Walk in east Tyrol, which has no direct connection to its larger brother between St Johann and Arlberg.
