Craggy peaks, deep canyons and themed hiking trails - the region around Imst invites walkers and hikers to explore the stunning Lechtal Alps and discover the region's long and proud history.
The region around the pretty town of Imst is home to plenty of adventures for outdoor enthusiasts - for example the hike onto the Muttekopf mountain, with spectacular views from its summit at 2,050 metres above sea level stretching as far as the Gurgeltal Valley and the northern peaks of the Ötztal Alps. Two stages of the Eagle Walk lead through the region. There are also two more long-distance hiking trails in the form of the Starkenberg Panorama Trail and the Via Claudia Augusta, the latter of which leads along a former Roman road. Both are long and challenging, requiring good fitness and a head for heights. There is also plenty to see, do and explore for families with children. We recommend a walk through the Rosengartenschlucht, a canyon beginning in Imst and leading all the way to the Blue Grotto, a former mining area which takes its name from its shimmering blue water.
