High altitude hikes around the Hintertux Glacier

Trip tips: Hiking routes at Alpenhof in the Zillertal

The popular hiking region around Hintertux in the Zillertal promises a variety of trips – some cosy, some challenging. You should not miss out on the following hiking tips when you go hiking in the Tyrolean Alps:

Hintertux Waterfall Trail

From the starting point of the Sommerbergalm at 2,100 metres, you hike past numerous mountain inns and subsequently reach wild waterfalls and steep rock faces. Particularly worth seeing on this hiking route is the split boulder, the whale's mouth, which obtained its name due to its characteristic shape. A further refreshment awaits you at the Schraubenwasserfall waterfall and at the Kesselwasserfall waterfall. In the process, you hike through slight ascents and soft forest floors – a trip with numerous facets.
