Forecast

On Monday, a weak area of high pressure will reduce the risk of showers but will not be sufficient for a cloudless sky. For our weather here this will mean a calm mix of sunshine and cloud with more sunshine in the morning and more cloud in the afternoon.

The clouds are announcing a weak warm front that will pass over our region on Tuesday and on Wednesday bringing 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.

This hike starts at the car park and follows the forest road past the barrier to the Straßberghaus mountain hut. Just before the hut, you'll come to a fork in the road where you should turn right to follow the Hintereggensteig trail. The path leads steeply uphill until you come to another crossroads. From there, turn left and hike along the undulating trail until you reach the point where you can collect a stamp. From there, turn right to join the Dengg’n-Edi-Gratlsteig trail and follow it as it climbs quite steeply uphill through mountain pines. You'll come to a short section of the trail that is secured with cables and shortly afterwards, you'll reach a fork in the path. Continue straight on to the summit cross.


The hike back follows the same trail down from the Wetterkreuz cross until you come to the first junction. From there, follow signs to the Neue Alplhütte mountain hut and follow the trail as it winds its way down the mountain to the alpine pastures around the Neue Alplhütte mountain hut. Finally, take the forest road back to the Straßberghaus mountain hut and continue on to the car park.
