This walk begins at the Grünberg car park in Obsteig. Pass a wooden barn and follow the path (wide forest road) along part of the former piste. After about an hour's walking, you'll reach Zwischensimmering. From here, follow the signs for 'Simmeringalm' to the right and head along the forest path. It's about 60 minutes to your destination, where a cosy alpine hut awaits you.
A moderate trail with beautiful views (in winter also for snowshoers). The trail starts from the top of the Patscherkofelbahn lift at an altitude of almost 2,000 metres above sea level. From there, the route leads up the south side of Patscherkofel mountain to the summit. This high-altitude trail boasts stunning views, including 360-degree panoramic views from the summit of the surrounding Tyrolean mountains.
Start at the car park next to the open-air pool in Barwies and head north towards Schatzstein and Boasligbrücke (Obermieming). The trail increases in steepness up to the Boasligbrücke bridge, which will then take you across the Stöttlbach stream. On the other side of the stream, take the path down into the valley, before passing the Stöttlalm alpine hut and continuing on to the Lehnbach car park. From here, it's a circuit along the Sonnenplateau above the village until you arrive back in Barwies and the starting point.
From the wayside chapel above Fiecht, head through the forest and follow the signs for Fiechter Köpfl. A nice variation for the return is to take the route via Plateaublick. From here, the route is singposted to Untermieming and the bathing lake.
Starting point is at the car park next to the Grünberg lift valley station, and the climb follows the right-hand side of the old piste. At the Grünberg a viewing tower provides impressive views of the surrounding mountain landscape.
Start at Arzkasten car park and follow the wide forest road that takes you to a bridge over the Lehnbergbach stream. After the bridge, a path leads left towards the piste. This is the preferred route for ski tourers and snowshoers. From there, continue up to the Lehnberghaus mountain hut, where you can warm up and enjoy a bite to eat. If you don't want to walk back down the mountain from there, you can rent a toboggan from the hut and get back to the car park in next to no time.
If you would like to continue your hike, you can put your snowshoes back on and walk for another approx. 30-40 minutes to the Lacke viewing platform (an additional 150 vertical metres), where you will be rewarded with stunning, wide-open views of the Inn Valley.
This tour starts at the hikers' car park above Wildermieming and leads east. After about an hour, you come to the Straßberghaus mountain hut. The route then continues past the Straßberghaus and leads along the lower part of the magnificent Mieming Range before reaching the Neue Alplhütte mountain hut after about another hour.
On-piste ski tour and snowshoe trail
This is a great ski tour for beginners (and also for snowshoers) that leads from the top of Patscherkofelbahn lift, past the "Schutzhaus" mountain refuge and up to the summit. The route follows a forest road with wonderful views. It is quite easy to master and does not include any steep sections.
The tour can be combined with a ride up the mountain on the Patscherkofelbahn lift.
Opening times for on-piste ski tourers and snowshoers:
Daily from 9 am to 6 pm
Thursdays from 9 am to 10 pm
The pistes are closed for ski touring at all other times. Additional piste closures may occur and must be observed at all times.
Important information for on-piste ski touring
(Source: Kuratorium für alpine Sicherheit)
The ski pistes are primarily available for cable car and lift users. To avoid accidents and conflicts, we ask you to observe the following recommendations in addition to adhering to the FIS rules:
1. Observe warnings and local regulations
2. Observe piste closures when a piste or a section of a piste is closed. Dangerous and life-threatening situations may occur when piste machinery is in use, especially cable winches, etc. Pistes may, therefore, be closed for safety reasons for the duration of the work.
3. Only tour up the edge of the piste and in single file.
4. Only cross the piste at points where you are clearly visible and leave plenty of space between one another.
5. Only ski down the edge of freshly prepared pistes. Tracks that freeze overnight can severely affect the quality of the piste.
6. Leave the piste before 6 pm or before 10 pm on Thursdays.
7. Be visible. If it is dark or in the case of poor visibility, wear a head torch, reflective clothing, etc.
8. If there are pistes specifically designated for on-piste ski touring, only use these pistes.
9. Do not take dogs on the pistes.
10. Use the designated car parking areas and pay any applicable parking fees.
