Hiking in the Tannheim Valley, Tyrol

300 kilometers of hiking trails

The Tannheim Valley in North Tyrol, with the panorama of the Allgäu Alps at your doorstep, offers many opportunities for enjoyable walking tours. Walking past mountain lakes in the high mountain valley at 1,100 meters above sea level, high-altitude hiking trails, themed trails, attractions like the largest summit book in the Alps, and 31 alpine huts all await mountain-lovers. Hikers can choose between simple walks, demanding alpine ascents or simpler climbing routes amongst the trails on three altitude levels.

The valley basin level in the “most beautiful high mountain valley in Europe” is ideal for recreational hikers. Meandering trails lead from one town to another, past farms, chapels and along shorelines at the Haldensee and the Vilsalpsee. To reach the second altitude level atop the mountains, you can simply take one of the convenient cable cars or chairlifts. From here, via short ascents, hiking trails lead to mountain top routes, summits and traditional mountain huts, which offer magnificent views over the valley and of the Allgäu Alps.

Mountaineers and climbers find the alpine routes at the third altitude level. Experienced hikers can test their skill on three "via ferrata" (climbing paths), first the 2,249 meter high Gaishorn, the highest mountain in the Tannheim Valley, and two summit tours up the Rote Flüh (2,111 meters) and the Gimpel (2,176 meters).

Hiking in the snowy winter landscape

Hiking in the holiday region Tannheim Valley is a pleasure not only in summer. Varied winter hikes offer a view of the snowy Tyrolean high mountain valley and the Allgäu Alps. You can choose between 81 km of snow-cleared, groomed paths. Excursions on snowshoes or summit hikes - experienced mountain and hiking guides know which tour suits whom best. Even in winter the imposing mountains can easily be explored using convenient mountain cable cars and lifts.
