Themed walks & trails
Several themed walks & hiking trails in our holiday region offer walkers an insight into various subjects of local interest from culture to nature to history.
Themed walk in Inzing
Visually appealing information boards positioned along the walking trail provide an in-depth insight into how the landscape was formed by the force of the glacier and water.

A walk through the centuries
Churches, chambers and cellars in Flaurling.
Located in the middle of the Upper Inn Valley on the old salt road between Innsbruck and Telfs, the village of Flaurling has, for several years now, been one of the official stops along the Way of St. James. It is a typical Tyrolean village with a rural character.
The village, first occupied by the Bavarii (Bavarians), was recorded in documents dating back as early as 763 AD under the name of ‘Flurininga’. Its eventful history, which has many connections to Tyrolean, Austrian and European history, comes to life during this walking tour.
Several architectural jewels from the Middle Ages are particularly worth noting, many of which, including Ris Castle, became church property at the time of the Habsburg endowments around 1500.
For the most part, the historical buildings replaced earlier buildings. For example, the Classical-style Parish Church of St. Margaret now stands on top of the foundations of a 14th-century chapel.
Today, with its carefully renovated private houses, Flaurling’s village centre is a picturesque hamlet strongly rooted in history.

Oak forest nature trail in Stams
A stroll through the historical oakwood in Stams is always a worthwile pastime.
The oak forest in Stams is one of the last remaining mixed deciduous forests that were once widespread in the floodplains of the Inn Valley and on the talus slopes. Owned by the Cistercian monastery in Stams, this particular forest owes its survival to its function as a protective barrier against flooding and mudslides. Today, a nature trail which starts in the west of the village leads through the forest alongside the banks of the Stamser Bach stream. Information boards provide interesting facts on nature-themed topics such as wild herbs, grasses, birds and wetlands.
Larch Tree Trail in Obsteig
A short circular trail centered around the larchtree meadows.
This short, pleasant hike is aimed at sharing the beauty of the larch meadows with our guests and, at the same time, providing interesting information and an enjoyable experience. Starting at the entrance to the village of Obsteig, the Larch Tree Trail offers a short hike centred around the larch tree meadows.
Take your time and learn all about the larch tree, about the history of the larch forests, their cultivation and uses, and about the flora and fauna of the forest. Particular highlights during the walk also include glacial erratics dating back to the Ice Age and a huge ‘circular stone’, the origins of which remain a mystery.
The time required for the track depends on who is using it – runners can do it on around 15 minutes, walkers in 45 minutes, people interested in the history, geology, flora and fauna along the way require around 2 hours, and those who really want to relax, take it easy and savour every minute can spend half a day on the track.
