Innsbruck’s Mountain Hiking Programme is provided  free of charge by Innsbruck Tourist Office to anyone who stays at least one night in Innsbruck or its holiday villages. The program starts at the end of May and includes mountain hikes with certified mountaineering guides from AlpinSchule Innsbruck, free hiking bus, rental hiking boots and backpacks, 40 different itineraries and a total of 1,220 km of mountain hiking trails. You can choose between a rather gentle hike and one of moderate difficulty, tailored to the individual physical shape. Walking in Innsbruck and its holiday villages caters to all tastes!

Famous for its glorious mountain scenery, Innsbruck is the perfect holiday destination to get active and fuel up on fresh country air with summer hikes. Explore high-alpine terrain in the company of a certified hiking guide from the world-renowned AlpinSchule Innsbruck. Hop on a designated hiking bus for an unforgettable nature experience with Innsbruck’s complimentary Mountain Hiking Programme. No other city in the world offers a similarly attractive, free hiking programme in a truly unique setting.

On the seven kilometer long Zirbenweg (stone pine path) above Innsbruck, at 2,000 meters above sea level, you can enjoy a gentle hike taking about two and a half hours along almost flat paths leading through stands of centuries-old stone pines and take in the spectacular panoramic views across the Inn valley.

Or enjoy the spectacular aerial views of one of the most attractive sections of the Adlerweg trail, a hiking track stretching through the entire province of Tyrol, leading from the Hafelekar cable car station along the Goetheweg trail to the remote Pfeishütte. This challenging alpine hike for the more experienced visitors is among the most beautiful hikes in the greater Innsbruck region.

Another option for a leisurely hike with all the family is the Innsbruck Alpine Meadows Walk, meandering across the surrounding foothills and the holiday villages of Natters, Mutters, Götzens, Birgitz, Axams and Grinzens. You can choose whether your path leads you to the alpine pastures of Götzner Alm, Mutterer and Birgitzer Alm or Axamer Lizum.

And last but not least: Don’t miss the lantern hikes with live Tyrolean music at a mountain hut on Tuesday nights.
