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.

This route starts from the car park in Praxmar and heads towards the Schefalm mountain hut. From there, follow the trail towards Oberstkogel. Below the Oberstkogel, continue towards the summit of Zischgeles. For the return hike, you can either double back the same way or make a circular route by following the trail that zigzags steeply down to Satteljoch and Kampljoch before returning to the starting point. The name Zischgeles comes from "Franziskus" and his Tyrolean nickname "Zischg".
