Mountaineering and climbing in the activity resort of Tyrol

The mountains are calling! So that you can also call out "Hail the mountains" one or two times high over the valley and perpetuate yourself in the guestbook at the peak we have put together the best tours for mountaineering and climbing in Tyrol for you. Perhaps you will even meet a few genuine Tyrolean originals on the way who will make your journey a bit easier with a sincere "Servus!" 

Tyrol and the Wipp Valley are ideal for climbing and mountaineering. The mountain ranges between the Zillertal, Tux and Stubai Alps are characterised by limestone, granite and slate and not only provide unique scenic views but also varying levels of sporting difficulty to conquer the summits. Serles, Olperer, Habicht, Hammerspitze, Naviser Kreuzjöchl, Muttenkopf, Wolfendorn and Mislkopf are just a few destinations for true mountaineers and passionate climbers. By the way: St. Jodok, Schmirn and Vals in Tyrol have belonged to the exclusive circle of "Mountaineers' Villages" in Austria since 2012.

South Tyrol's Wipp Valley with its side valleys Pflerschtal, Pfitschtal and Ridnauntal creates a diverse backdrop for hiking adventures and climbing experiences. The Wipp Valley is a cross-border region that impresses in every scenic, cultural and sporting respect.

Some prerequisites for unique climbing experiences in Tyrol are a respect for nature, the required level of fitness and a spirit of adventure. You are rewarded with breathtaking panoramas and an unparalleled natural landscape. We have already put together a few tips for mountaineering and climbing in Tyrol for you in advance. We are of course happy to also personally advise you at the hotel!
