Pitztal in Tyrol – tucked away between Ötztal and Kaunertal valleys – is truly special: discover high-alpine challenges and a picture-postcard world with rural villages, family-friendly atmosphere and genuine warmth at the foot of Tyrol’s highest glacier (3,440 m). Visitors to Pitztal valley quickly forget their everyday life. The valley road meanders 40 kilometres up the valley from Imst with towering rocks and tremendous waterfalls on either side. Switching off is easy here, as nature sets the tone.
Those looking for a summit experience can climb the Wildspitze peak (3,774 m) auf, the highest mountain of northern Tyrol. Those of a more epicurean nature can stop at Café 3.440 and take in the panoramic views of the surrounding and mighty three thousand metre peaks. Take a turn around the Lake Rifflsee, the highest mountain lake of Tyrol (2,232 m) and “glide up” on the eponymous gondola to get to it. Roam through Hochzeiger hiking resort with its unforgettable views, or take part in one of our guided hiking tours across catered mountain huts and sing a song with the mountain hut’s keeper. “Do as you please” is Pitztal’s maxim and the perfect motto for your holiday.
