Mountain Pasture Hike
Koppeneck - Eulenwiesen

Autumn is the perfect time of year to visit the Eulenwiesen, an area of alpine pastureland at the northern foot of the Serles mountain near Innsbruck. As summer slowly fades away, the trees here turn a million shades of red, orange, gold and brown. This idyllic forest can be easily accessed from the Bergstation Koppeneck. This family-friendly walk leads along wide paths to Gleins and then down to the bottom of the cable car. The Ochsenhütte hut near the top of the cable car is a good place to stop for a hearty meal.

Trail description

The walk begins at the Bergstation Koppeneck at the top of the Serlesbahn cable car above Mieders. Between the restaurant and the Serlesseen lakes, take the path for "Gleinser Hof" as far as the Ochsenhütte hut. There, turn left and walk downhill until you meet a wider forest track. Alternatively, you can leave out the Ochsenhütte by taking the left-hand fork at the point where the trail divides just after the Restaurant Koppeneck. Follow the wide forest track for around an hour until you get to a crossroads with several signs. Turn sharp right onto a trail leading up to the Eulenwiesen. After three more kilometres through a larch forest you will reach the vantage point at the Eulenwiesen. Return along the way you came as far as the crossroads to Gleins. From there, turn right and walk to Gleins. Pass the Gleinser Hof and head down via a twisting trail to Mieders. Walk through the village along the main road back to the bottom of the Serlesbahn cable car. If you want, you can then walk back up to the starting point at Bergstation Koppeneck.
