Trail running and hiking routes

In Tyrol’s Oberinntal and the surrounding border triangle area, there is something to suit every taste and every need. Be inspired by the beautiful area that we call home!

Over 300 km signposted hiking paths, picturesque Alpine inns and lodges, glistening mountain lakes and gentle Alpine terrain, impressive gorges and ravines, waterfalls and summits tempt you to head out on hikes and trail running tours. A brief excerpt:

Verpeilhütte, 2016m

Verpeilhütte is located at 2016m in a charming high valley area above Feichten. You start your tour in Feichten (Mühlbach) along the rural road to Verpeilalm, which is not open for business. From here you can choose the route you continue on yourself, then, on both sides of the Verpeilbach, a path leads to Verpeilhütte. Having reached your destination, you get to enjoy a fantastic view and replenish your energy stores in the Alpine inn which is open over the summer. For over 40 years the lodge has been known for having the best ‘Kaiserschmarrn’.

Should you still want to scale another summit afterwards, there is the option to tackle the Mooskopf and the Madatschkopf.

Madatschkopf, 2778 m

The Madatschkopf is Verpeiltal's viewing mountain which is lovely and very easy to access. A breath-taking view across Kaunertal right into Inntal awaits on the summit of the mountain.

Explore one of the loveliest high valleys in Kaunertal – Verpeiltal. A route that easy to negotiate takes you through the forest to the Verpeilalm, heading up to Verpeilhütte at 2016m altitude. From there, a romantic steep hiking path proceeds through high mountains up to the Madatschkopf. A mountain all the family can tackle.

Walking time from the Verpeilalm is approx. two to three hours.

Aifner Alm, 1980m

The nature trail from Aifner Alm along the Kaunergrat, passing Alpine pastures, whisks hikers into expansive Alpine regions in the Kaunergrat, with their long agricultural tradition.

Hohe Aifner Spitze summit, 2779m

You come to the Aifner Alm, after having hiked - or run - from the Kaunerberg through the forest. A zig-zagging, steep hiking path takes you up to the Hohe Aifner Spitze. Once you arrive at your destination, you will be inspired by the fantastic all-encompassing views you get from this point.

Walking time is around three to four hours from Aifner Alm.

Thomas Penz Höhenweg

The Glockturmkamm ridge high above Kaunertal serves as the backdrop for the Thomas-Penz-Höhenweg .

The Thomas Penz Höhenweg is a connecting route from the Langetsbergalm (not open for business) via Kehm, Mahdegg and Hahntennen to Kupp.

Walking time is five to six hours, with a 840 metre altitude difference.

A good level of fitness and sure-footedness are required!

Anton Renk Hütte, 2260m

A wonderful route with fantastic views across the valley takes you from Sattele (accessible from Ried via the gondola) to Fendler Alpe and then to Anton Renk Hütte (2260m; not open for business).

Panorama path

This Panorama path combines healthy movement, breath-taking views and culinary delectation.

This wonderfully designed altitude path, which has few inclines and descents, proceeds above the forest boundary line. Fantastic, unforgettable views await.

Alternatively, this tour can be done in reverse, from Falkaunsalm to Aifner Alm.

Walking time is approx. three to four hours.

Brandenburger Haus

Brandenburger Haus at 3272 m is directly above the Gepatsch Ferner glacier and is the highest Alpine lodge in Kaunertal.

Experience in high Alpine terrain, or a mountain guide are required for this lovely tour via Rauhekopfhütte and Gepatsch Ferner glacier.
