Forecast

Our region is at the heart of a large area of low pressure! What sounds dramatic here will turn out to be harmless: the conditions in the centre of a low are always more stable and calmer than in marginal areas. The day will therefore bring more bright spells and less frequent showers than yesterday.

Tendency

Until Wednesday, our weather will remain changeable. Temporary sunny spells will alternate with periods of thick cloud and a few showers.

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.

Start at the church in Gries and walk 200 metres to the turnoff for Heuriesenweg. Follow the trail north around steep hairpin bends, first through the forest and then up to the alpine pastures on the Sonnberg. The path from there starts easy and later becomes steep as it leads via Hirscheben and up to the summit of Rosskogel mountain, where you can enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the Nordtiroler Kalkalpen (the Limestone Alps of North Tyrol), the Inn Valley and the alpine foothills of the Stubai, Ötz and Tux Alps. Follow the same route back down or hike via Kögele to St. Quirin and Sellrain (no. 11).
