Summer in the Stubai Valley ...
Themed Hikes in the Stubai Alps
Holidaymakers can look forward to a well developed network of hiking trails and mountain huts in the picturesque Stubai Valley! At the Schlick 2000 hiking centre in Fulpmes, the hiking region around the Serlesbahnen lifts in Mieders, at the Elfer lifts in Neustift, the impressive Stubai Glacier and in the numerous tributary valleys such as the idyllic Pinnistal or the romantically situated Oberbergtal!
You can start in the holiday resort of Milders and walk past the rustic Stöcklenalm and on another 10 kilometres until Oberissalm where, according to the landlady, you will find the very best goat's cheese. From there you can carry on to the Franz-Senn-Hut, which bears the name of the famous glacier priest and founder of the German Alpine Club.
Discover the diversity and beauty, as well as history and culture of the Stubai Valley whilst walking along one of the exciting themed trails. The Besinnungsweg (Trail of Contemplation) into the Pinnistal Valley invites you on a spiritual journey. The Kapellen und Quellenweg (Chapel and Natural Spring Trail) at the foot of Mount Serles, as well as the WildeWasserWeg (Wild Water Trail) lead past fabled and fabulously beautiful waterways. The Alpenpflanzenlehrpfad (Alpine Plants Trail) and Naturlehrweg (Nature Trail) teach you all about the flora and fauna of Schlick 2000. During the summer months, hikers wander up to over 3,000 metres above sea level on the Gletscherpfad (Glacier Path), and from hut to hut along the 120-km-long Stubai High Trail.
Mountain enthusiasts will find countless distinctive summits and peaks, high altitude trails, via Ferrate and climbing routes in every direction. Conquer the mighty Mount Serles, the „High Altar of Tyrol", the North Tyrolean Dolomites - the Kalkkögel Peaks - and Mounts Elfer, Zwölfer and Habicht in Neustift.
The end of the valley is enthroned by the majestic 3000 metre high Zuckerhütl, Wilder Freiger and Stubaier Wildspitz Mountains. Savour spectacular views of the imposing Stubai Alps and over the Schlick 2000 ski area from the „TOP OF TYROL" viewing platform at the Stubai Glacier.
