Multi-day hike
Herz Ass Villgraten

This six-day hike rated intermediate/difficult takes walkers through the mountains of the Villgratental Valley from Astrane to the Thurntaler peak (2,407m) and the Thurntaler Rast. All in all this adventure in the mountains of East Tirol comprises 5,830 vertical metres, 100 kilometres and 36 hours of walking time.

  • The Herz Ass Villgraten (Heart Ace Villgraten) hike takes its name from the Villgraten Mountains, which stretch out in a heart shape between the villages of Innervillgraten and Außervillgraten.
  • 1988 Norbert Mariacher and Konrad Hofmann became the first people to traverse these mountains from one end to the other, thereby creating the Herz Ass Villgraten hike.
  • Over 50km point to point, 100km of hiking and 50 of the region's most famous mountains – plus countless other alpine highlights – make this an unforgettable adventure. At the end of each stage there is a mountain hut waiting with hearty food and a warm bed.
