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 tour starts at the small car park above the last snow shed (avalanche gallery protecting the road) before Kühtai when approaching from Innsbruck. From there, cross the street and you'll come to the green snow shed. The route initially leads slightly downhill along the snow shed before following a road uphill to the Klammbachtal stream valley. The road ends at a water catchment facility at an altitude of around 1,900 metres above sea level and the route then continues along an alpine trail that leads further into the valley. Later you will come to a turnoff, follow the signs to "Rietzer Grieskogel". The route continues via Narrenböden, always with a view of the summit with its mighty cross, before leading up Bachwandkopf to the ridge. From there, you follow the ridge east to the summit.

Elevation profile


With high pressure over Europe, this day will bring plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures. In the afternoon, cumulus cloud will thicken; the risk of thunderstorms however remains slight.


Little will change on Saturday. Sunday, low pressure will increase and we will see a mix of sunshine, clouds and thunderstorms. These conditions are not long-lasting either: before Monday the weather will be fine again.
