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.

You can take the Innsbruck Nordkettenbahnen lifts from the centre of Innsbruck up to the mountain lift station at Hafelekar, which is located 2,256 metres above sea level. From there, an easy path leads up to Hafelekar peak.
The summit offers breathtaking views of two different worlds. On one side, you look south over the city of Innsbruck, the Inn Valley and the landscapes beyond. In the other direction, rugged rocks reach as far as the eye can see: you are standing at the gateway to the Karwendel mountains and looking deep into the Alps.
The hike from the mountain lift station up to the summit cross is not very strenuous. However, good footwear is essential.
