Its proximity to Innsbruck makes the Birgitzer Alm hut and its adjoining toboggan run a very popular destination. The ascent starts at the car park near the Gasthof Adelshof, though it is also possible to reach the Birgitzer Alm from the village of Birgitz (walking time around three hours; good snow cover required for descent). Upon reaching the hut, visitors are rewarded with panoramic views of the Inntal Valley as far as the Axamer Lizum ski area and the Nockspitze mountain. After sampling some traditional Tirolean food in the cosy hut, it is time to jump on board and head down the 3.2km run that winds its way back into the valley.
