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 Gleirschalm car park, you should ideally bike along the paved road to the Gleirschalm and then continue along the forest road that leads into the valley. When you reach an altitude of about 1,750 metres above sea level, the terrain becomes steep and rough and it is better to continue on foot. After about 2.5 hours, you will reach the Pforzheimer Hütte mountain hut. From there, the route continues south-west into the Walfeskar corrie. When you reach the corrie, the route becomes very steep and climbs several hundred vertical metres up the south-facing slope to the edge of the ridge. From there, you can see the cross on the "Zwieselbacher". The route then takes you downhill for a few metres towards Kraspesferner, in a wide arc around to the south-west side and up to the summit.

Follow the same route back.
