Walking & Hiking in Tirol


!Delayed start to the 2019 hiking season!

Due to the large amounts of snow still present in the mountains and the work that is currently underway to clear away this snow, hiking in high alpine terrain will not be possible until later in the year than usual. Before setting off on a hike, please check with the local tourist board if the trails are accessible. Some huts operated by the Austrian Alpine Club have already opened for the summer season and can be reached on foot without any problems.

Welcome to the Tirolean Mountains: Some 24,000 kilometres of marked hiking and mountain trails lead through Tirol.

The Heart of the Alps in Austria opens up to reveal a fascinating mountain world. Hikers and climbers can roam through gentle uplands, master the long-distance trekking trails, or scale one of the many mountain peaks. Whether you are walking, mountain hiking or trekking: you are bound to find a route to suit amongst the 24,000 kilometres of marked trails. Tirol's most famous long-distance trekking trail, the Eagle Walk, traverses the heart of the Alps over 413 kilometres and impressively demonstrates Tirol’s beauty, individuality and character during a walking and hiking holiday in Austria.
