Way of the St. James
Walking the Way of St. James (also known as the Camino de Santiago) has, over the last decades, become incredibly popular. Several sections of the famous pilgrimage route to Santiago di Compostela pass right through our region.
'Tyrolean' Way of St. James – from Inzing to Silz.
Starting in the idyllic village of Inzing, pilgrims walk to Hatting, the little holiday resort on the edge of the forest. From there the route continues to Polling, Flaurling, Oberhofen im Inntal, Pfaffenhofen and Rietz to the pilgrimage church of St. Anthony (Antonius), which enjoys a uniquely beautiful location.
The route then leads on via Stams to the village of Silz.
Tip: Make a short detour to the Maria Locherboden pilgrimage church near Mötz.
After Silz, the Way of St. James continues along the Inn Valley in a westerly direction.
Way of St. James – ‘Isar-Loisach-Leutascher Ache-Inn’
The reactivated connecting route from Munich via the Seefeld and Leutasch plateaus links the Way of St. James in southern Bavaria with the Tyrolean section of the Way of St. James in the Inn Valley. On the Austrian side, the Way of St. James passes Buchen, the Lottensee lake and the Peace Bell in Mösern to Telfs. From there it continues along the contemplative trail to the Maria Locherboden pilgrimage church near Mötz. Then the route takes walkers to the village of Mötz itself,alongside the River Inn to Staudach, where the trail joins the Inn Valley section of the Way of St. James.
‘Tyrol-Allgäu’ Way of St. James
This Alpine section of the Way of St. James is both scenically beautiful and culturally appealing. Away from busy roads and traffic, it takes walkers over three mountain passes – the Fernpass, the old Gaichtpass and the Jochpass. The route leads along ancient Roman roads, trading routes and pilgrim paths over one of the most picturesque hiking and holiday regions in the Tyrol and in the southern Allgäu region.
from Mötz via Mieming to Telfs
The Contemplative Trail takes hikers from the Maria Locherboden pilgrimage church in Mötz via Mieming to the modern Church of the Holy Spirit (Heilig-Geist-Kirche) in Telfs. At twelve different stops along the way, young artists have created interesting areas that bring together biblical messages, the natural surroundings and different forms of art.
Trail of Reflection
This popular pilgrim's trail is the connection between three beautiful pilgrimage churches in the Tyrolean Oberland.
This pilgrimage walk includes three pilgrimage churches located in the Tyrol’s Oberland region - the Church of St. Anthony (St. Antonius) in Rietz, the church of St. John (St. Johannes) in Stams and the Maria Locherboden church in Mötz. From there, walkers can return to Stams and Rietz via a loop along the Locherboden tracks and across the hanging bridge. The individual themed stops between the three churches offer opportunities for reflection, and open up new perspectives into the distinctive natural and cultural attributes of the central Upper Inn Valley.

Peace bell walking trail
7 stations along the way to Tirol's largest bell.
A peaceful, contemplative trail takes walkers to the largest free-standing bell in the Alps that is rung every day at 5 pm as a symbol of good neighbourly relations. Starting from the Seewald-Alm car park in Mösern, the trail (with a walking time of around 1 ½ hours) is punctuated with specially created stops that lend themselves to rest and reflection.
Night pilgrimage to Locherboden
Lantern-lit processions to the Maria Locherboden sanctuary.
On the 11th day of each month (may to october), people from near and far get together for a lantern-lit pilgrims' procession to the Maria Locherboden church towering high above the Inn river's valley. Beginning: 8 pm.Since the mid-18th century, the Maria Locherboden sanctuary is towering on the highest point of a rock plateau protruding over the Inn river's valley. It was built to commemorate the miraculous rescue of a miner from a collapsed shaft. Ever since then, pilgrims form near and far have hiked the mountain to kneel at the feet of the Madonna and offer up their prayer, while enjoying breathtaking views of the upper Inn valley and the Stams abbey.
