To the west a nature park, to the south-east the foothills of the Tux Alps - the Karwendel Silver Region offers a diverse landscape with 600-year-old trees and spectacular views of 3,000m peaks.
The Karwendel Silver Region offers fine rewards for walkers and hikers willing to work up a sweat. For example, the two-day hike through the Karwendel Mountain comprises 24 kilometres of hiking with 1,400 vertical metres of ascent. The route takes in the Karwendel Nature Park with its mixed forests and stone pine bushes all the way to the Großer Ahornboden, a plateau home to centuries-old sycamore trees. Autumn is the best time of year to explore this area, with the leaves on the 600-year-old trees shimmering in a thousand shades of red, yellow, orange, brown and gold. Several stages of the Eagle Walk also traverse the region. Families with children in search of easier walks in the nature park will enjoy the ramble to the Eng-Alm hut or the Ganalm hut. In the Tux Alps we recommend a trip to the Kellerjochhütte with its fantastic views at 2,237 metres above sea level taking in some of Austria's highest peaks such as the Großglockner and the Großvenediger. The hut can also be reached via the Inn Valley High Trail.
