With the craggy peaks of the Kalkkögel to the north-west, the eternal ice of the Stubai Glacier to the south and the mighty Habicht-Elfer-Serles Massif to the east, the Stubai Valley is perfect for ambitious walkers and hikers keen to scale the heights.
The region is dominated by the Seven Summits, the highest of which is the 3,607-metre Zuckerhütl on the Stubai Glacier followed by the 3,277-metre Habicht above Neustift. This mountain also marks the starting point for a hiking trail onto the Elferspitze mountain with its fantastic views of the surrounding region, including iconic peaks such as the Serles. Ambitious hikers can take on the Stubai High Trail comprising seven stages and a total of 80km with more than 5,000 vertical metres of climbing. While much of the hiking is tough, there are also easier paths suitable for families with children. The water-themed WildeWasserWeg, for example, or the buggy-friendly path through the lush Telfeser Wiesen meadows are some of the most beautiful walking routes down in the valley.
