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.

From the parking lot, follow the forest road partly inwards until you reach the Fernerboden just before the end of the valley. Here follow the signs in the direction of the mighty "wall" to the left of the path. Passing alder scrub, the path goes partly secured uphill into the wall. At about 2,200 meters you cross a bridge that leads over the meltwater stream of the Lüsener Ferner. Continue on the path in an easterly direction up to a moraine. Follow the moraine to the end of the trail at the beginning of the large glacier basin of the Lüsener Fern. Continue along the edge of the glacier to the west to the "Plattigen Wand". Here a bit of laborious work up through rubble to an embrasure. From here you descend a few meters to the north before you reach the glacier basin of the Rotgratferner. Over these crevasses you reach the lowest point between Rotgratspitze and Fernerkogel at about 3,200 meters. Over the block ridge it goes up to the highest point with a beautiful cross. On particularly good days, the distant view reaches from Munich over the Karwendel to the Wilder Kaiser, further to the Großglockner, the Dolomites to the highest mountains of the Stubai and Ötztal Alps, the Zugspitze and much more.
