Walking routes in Tyrol

Relax on leisurely walks in Pitztal

Walking routes in Pitztal are defined as short, hardly demanding routes. Some of our hiking paths are suitable for prams. Walking routes are particularly popular with senior citizens and families with small children. Or you may just wish to go on a romantic stroll to stretch your legs after a delicious dinner.

Pitztal does not only offer walking routes down in the valley but also easy routes on higher ground that can easily be accessed by using a mountain railway. You may, for example wish to go on the ZirbenPark circular route using Hochzeiger Bergbahnen, on the Lake Rifflsee circular route using Rifflsee Bergbahnen or walk to the Chapel of White Light on Pitztal Glacier.
