The Eagle Walk, known in German as the Adlerweg, is one of the most famous treks in Tyrol, Austria. If seen from above, the Adlerweg map resembles the silhouette of an eagle hovering in the air with its wings spread wide open, therefore its name. This famous hike runs from east to west through the whole of Tyrol and encompasses 33 stages and 413 kilometers.
One of the beauties of the Adlerweg is its versatility and variety. The trail guides you through several mountain ranges where you will discover valleys, lakes, rivers, ridges, and so much more! If you want to conquer this Austrian gem, you must know that the trail requires alpine experience, a firm foot, and a head for heights.
We have prepared this moderate 7-day trek for those trekkers who have some trekking experience but would like to take it a little slower. This package includes a hotel before and after your hike. Are you ready for the most beautiful stages of the Adlerweg?
Arrival day Innsbruck
Today you arrive by car, plane or Night Train in Innsbruck, the Capital of the Alps. You will spend the night in a cozy 3-star hotel in the center of this beautiful city.
Hotel Central (Innsbruck)
Innsbruck - Pfeishütte
Distance:10.7 km / 6.6 mi
Ascent:1490 m / 4888 ft
Descent:390 m / 1280 ft
Our hike starts in fantastic Innsbruck, at Bergstation Hungerburg. Here you have the option of covering the first part of the hike with the Seegrubenbahn which leads all the way to Bergstation Nordkette. This tempting choice can easily save you over 800 meters in altitude and keep your legs fit for the remaining three hours along the Mandlspitze to the Pfeishütte. Prefer not to take the cable car? You hike zigzagging from Hungerburg Bergstation through Taubental to Goetheweg, which connects with Adlerweg.
Pfeishütte - Hallerangerhaus
Distance:7.5 km / 4.7 mi
Ascent:400 m / 1312 ft
Descent:550 m / 1804 ft
Your first morning in the Karwendel. Today you hike along the Kleine Stempeljochspitze and descend into the Isstal. You also have the option of hiking via the Wilde-Band-Steig to the Hallerangerhaus, but please note: This is a fairly technical variant. At Kahlstatt the two different options meet up again and from here you hike through the Durchslag (Doorslag) to the Hallerangerhaus, which has been a loyal support point for mountain sports in the Karwendel since the early 1900s.
