Summit Tours

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.

Some summit tours only require a short hike, the rest of the route is covered by a mountain lift or cable car. To see these summit tours, choose "easy" in the filters below.

Are you looking for the ultimate mountaineering experience? Would you like to reach the summit under your own steam? If so, choose "difficult". The results will then show routes for experienced mountaineers with good fitness levels.

Starting at Arzkasten car park, take the steep Alpsteig path to the Marienbergalm mountain hut. From there, follow the gravel path towards Marienbergjoch. Just below the Marienbergjoch ridge, a trail leads west towards the Handschuhspitze. You need to be sure-footed for this steep alpine path, which crosses scree fields and leads up the mountain to the summit. The views from the top are fantastic.

Forecast

Today, high pressure will once again dominate our weather. Tuesday will therefore bring us once again pleasant winter weather! After a starry night, Tuesday will start with hard frost. During the day the sun will shine without clouds.

Tendency

High pressure will reach its climax on Thursday! We can thus look forward to a marvellous day!

The next harmless clouds will not arrive before Friday.
