Our Summer Hiking Programme starts into the season all in pink as around mid-June the mountain slopes are ablaze with alpine roses. The family-friendly Zirbenweg high-altitude trail between Patscherkofel and Glungezer boasts unique views of Innsbruck and the Inn Valley, framed by the pink splendour of alpine roses.
The Sellrain Valley, a mere 30-minute drive away from town, is home of the designated ‘mountaineering villages’ Gries, Sellrain and St. Sigmund. Idyllic Lüsens enchants visitors with unspoilt mountain scenery and the magical world of honeybees. Tranquil and devoid of cable cars, the Austrian mountaineering villages guarantee a relaxing nature experience, away from it all.
How about exploring the mountains from the back of an
Icelandic horse? Kühtai, one of the most beautiful places in the region, is now offering guided trekking tours for beginners and experienced riders. Sure-footed and sturdy, the good-natured Icelandic horses are ideally suited to high alpine terrain at an altitude of 2,000m.
To the west of Innsbruck, the Mieming Plateau is the perfect spot for a relaxing family holiday. Family-friendly hotels, set amid spectacular larch forests, await you with cosy atmosphere and culinary treats. Dreams come true, in a bed of hay under the stars. Fun and laughter, warm hospitality and a genuine family feel add up to a great stay.
Our tip: With your guest card you are welcome to participate in our free mountain hiking programme. Organized by Alpinschule Innsbruck, these daily guided tours include free transfers on the hiking bus, logbook and rental of hiking boots.
Bring your perfect summer day to a mellow close in Innsbruck’s vibrant Old Town, toasting your summit conquests with a well-deserved, pink aperitif.
