Winter hike
Absam - Thaur

This beautiful trail can be treated either as a long winter walk or a pilgrimage to what is one of the most well-known pilgrimage churches in Tirol. From Absam the hike leads through open meadowland to the village of Thaur, known in winter for its hand-carved nativity scenes, and up to the small Romedikirche pilgrimage church perched on a small plateau overlooking the Inntal Valley.
