Spectacular panoramic views on high-level trails and the peaks of the valley, wild and unspoilt nature at the protected Kaunergrat nature park, plus experiences at the limit on steep climbing walls and sharp ridges. These are only some of the ingredients that make for impressive summer holidays in Austria.
There are numerous opportunities to experience a mountain summer in Pitztal: discovering the natural beauty spot Pitzeklamm gorge on a hike along the Luis Trenker trail at the entrance of the valley or taking a look down from the tall Benni Raich bridge. Following the culinary „Pitztaler Almenweg“ trail from one catered mountain hut to the next high up from the bottom of the valley or on a day trip to Café 3.440, the highest coffee shop of Austria on top of Pitztal glacier facing the impressive Wildspitze peak.
A special tip for families is ZirbenPark at Hochzeiger where you can playfully discover the wonderful world of a famous local tree, the stone pine, using all your senses on an adventure trail.
Another speciality of Pitztal is of course its pure spring water. It bubbles out of the ground everywhere, gathers in idyllic mountain lakes or rushes down into the valley in thunderous waterfalls. Watch this natural spectacle up close from our waterfall viewing platforms!
Apart from Pitztal’s remarkable natural world our mountain restaurants and catered alpine huts are a culinary highlight of a Tyrolean mountain summer. Hearty snack boards, homemade dumplings and traditional cheese noodles are only some of Tyrol’s local delicacies that you can look forward to during your summer holiday in Pitztal!
In addition to all of this, numerous activities such as rock climbing, trail running, mountain biking or Haflinger horse trekking make for an unforgettable alpine summer holiday experience for all ages.
