As winter slips away and spring arrives, it's time to get your walking boots out of the cellar and head for the hills. Spring is the perfect time of year to explore some of Tirol's most beautiful valleys. What are you waiting for?
Gentians, violets, dandelions and, first and foremost, crocuses – as soon as the sun grows warmer in spring, Tirol's lush meadows and pastures are covered in a thick carpet of colourful flowers. They herald the arrival of a new season. The best way to enjoy this spectacular sight is by pulling on your hiking boots and heading for the hills. Many valleys in Tirol can be hiked even in early spring thanks to their south-facing position. We have put together a list of the best spring hikes in Tirol. The lower the altitude, the earlier the snow melts. Each hike has a number of good huts and restaurants as well as cosy accommodation options.
