Hiking in Tux-Finkenberg

The Tux-Finkenberg region enjoys an idyllic location surrounded by lush meadows giving way to glacier-capped 3,000m peaks at the end of the narrow Tuxertal Valley. Visitors will find both challenging hikes and easy child-friendly walks.

Nestled between the Zillertal Alps to the south and the Tux Alp to the north, the Tux-Finkenberg region offers a combination of craggy peaks and rolling hills. A number of lifts and cable cars give easy access to the high mountains. For example, the Eggalmbahn cable car in Lanersbach near Tux leads up to 1,950 metres above sea level. The top station of the cable car is the starting point for many hikes such as the route up onto the Grüblspitze mountain. At the end of the valley there is another cable car onto the Hintertux Glacier. Near the top station of this cable car at 3,250 meteres above sea level there are six themed walking trails for children – the Glacier Flea Safari with interactive play stations. Advanced and expert hikers can get close to the Hintertux Glacier on the Berlin High Trail. This long-distance hike begins in Finkenberg and offers fantastic views of the 3,476-metre-high Olperer and the Schlegeisspeicher reservoir.
