Head for the heights in the Pitztal Valley! This area in the west of Tirol is home to the region's highest mountain and Austria's highest café. Further highlights include wildwater adventures, a local history museum, a hanging bridge and an obstacle course high above the ground.
Dangling 94 metres above the ground, the wooden footbridge across the Arzler Pitzeklamm ravine requires strong nerves and a head for heights – especially if you take on the bungee jump! Even higher up but a little more relaxing is the café perched atop the Hinterer Brunnenkogel mountain at 3,440 metres above sea level. It is the highest café in Austria and serves delicious coffee and cake in front of a truly breathtaking mountain backdrop. Families with older children will enjoy the Zirbenpark Hochzeiger, an outdoor adventure area in one of the region's oldest pine forests. Visitors keen to learn about one of the most impressive animals native to Tirol, the ibex, can do so in St. Leonhard. The Stamserhaus houses an exhibition showcasing the traditional local craft of carving wooden nativity scenes. On hot days there is no better place to cool off than the nearby swimming lake.
