Hiking to the very top
Are you a mountaineering fanatic? Or would you like to become one? If so, you're in the right place! We'll show you the most beautiful summit tours in the Innsbruck area. Not all of the peaks are difficult to reach and they don’t all require top mountaineering skills.
You don't have to be a mountaineering great like Reinhold Messner to conquer some of the local peaks. Here we have put together an overview of two easy summit tours.
These tours combine the uplifting feeling of reaching the summit with a comfortable journey there. The magic word is: "Bergbahn". Because where there is a mountain lift or cable car, you only have to complete the last stretch of the route up to the summit cross yourself. Then nothing stands between you and the perfect hiking experience.

This beautiful mountain hike starts at the top of the Nordkettenbahnen lifts, which means you can enjoy the journey up the mountain in comfort. The route follows a scenic high-altitude trail that leads towards Achselbodenhütte mountain hut and later climbs steeply up to the "Brandjochkreuz" summit cross on Brandjoch peak. The peak is located before the Vorderes Brandjoch and offers magnificent views of the Inn Valley, the city of Innsbruck below and the Wipp Valley stretching off into the distance.
