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.

From the car park in Praxmar, head north along the road following the signs for Freihut-Weg trail no. 30 until you come to a paved road with a barrier. Follow this road for a short distance until you see a signpost with a bench. Take the trail that leads off to the left before the signpost. Continue to follow the signs as the trail leads steadily uphill, crossing mountain slopes towards the entrance of the valley until coming to a corrie below the summit. From there, the trail gets steeper as it climbs up to the summit plateau and the little Freihut summit cross with its breathtaking panoramic views. For the descent, cross the summit plateau and follow the trail that leads west down to St. Sigmund. In the area around the Gleirschalm mountain hut, you meet a paved road. Follow this road down to the village of St. Sigmund.
