Overview

> Fantastic hut-to-hut tour for a long weekend 
> Spend your nights in Tyrolean mountain huts
> Includes accommodation in Innsbruck before and after the trek

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. 

For the entire Adlerweg you can easily allocate a month, but you probably don't have that time. With that in mind we have designed a 3-day package for you. If you want to enjoy the beauty of the Karwendel in Tirol for a long weekend, then this short Adlerweg is for you. What's more, the tour starts in Innsbruck, so you can start your hut tour right after you arrive in Innsbruck. This package includes hotel accommodation in Innsbruck, the capital of the Alps. 

Why book with us?


You can do the Adlerweg completely on your own. However, putting together the right route including securing all the accommodations can be a complicated affair. Bookatrekking.com has warm contacts with all the huts on this part of the Adlerweg and we are happy to take that burden off your shoulders. Contact our Trekking Experts for free travel advice and arranging your Adlerweg hike will be a piece of cake. 

Route

What's the plan?

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. 
 
Stage 1: Innsbruck - Pfeishütte
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. 
 
Hiking time:  4.5 hours from Hungerburg  / 3 hours from Bergstation Nordkette
Distance: 7,20 km / 7 km
Elevation: 1300m  / 430m 
Accommodation: Pfeishütte
 
Stage 2: Pfeishütte - Hallerangerhaus
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. 
 
Hiking time: 5 hours
Distance: 9.5 km 
Elevation: 700m
Accommodation: Hallerangerhaus
 
Stage 3: Hallerangerhaus - Scharnitz 
Today's route is only downhill. After a good breakfast, you hike for about an hour on a wide trail out of the valley toward the Kastenalm.  From the Kastenalm, it's an easy hike with a brisk descent to Scharnitz. From Scharnitz it is only 45 minutes by train back to Innsbruck..
 
Hiking time: 5 1/2 hours
Distance: 19.4 km
Elevation: 50 m
 
Departure day
One last breakfast in Innsbruck, the capital of the Alps and then it's over. A pleasant journey back!

On this version of the Adlerweg you will stay in the following mountain huts:

Pfeishütte
This pretty little mountain hut can be found in the southern Karwendel Mountains, high up at the end of Samertal Valley, surrounded by majestic mountains. It is a popular destination for hikers, because everyone knows just how good the food is. Traditional dishes such as “Kaiserschmarren” (sweet, chopped pancake) taste twice as good when savoured in the original ambience of the wood-panelled dining lounges dating back to the hut’s founding years of 1925/1926. 



Hallerangerhaus
The Hallerangerhaus was built in 1901 on an area of land known as Kohlerboden. After being destroyed by an avalanche in 1914, it was rebuilt 500 metres higher up in a more sheltered location. In recent years the hut has been extensively refurbished and renovated. Hot water is provided by solar energy, of which there is a plentiful supply for showers. For those who prefer natural spring water: the Isar river springs nearby.

FAQ

FAQ

How to get to the starting point of the Adlerweg?
As one of Austria's most important cities, Innsbruck is easily accessible by plane, train or bus. This makes it the ideal base for the Adlerweg. Even if you decide to take the plane, the ride from the airport to the city center takes only 20 minutes by bus or train. The starting point for this version of the Adlerweg is on the Nordkette of Innsbruck, at Bergstation Hungerburg. At the end point, Scharnitz you take a train back to Innsbruck. This is a journey of about one hour. 

What is the best season for the Adlerweg?
Like most tours in the Alps, the season for these tours is quite short. Due to snowfall and harsh weather conditions, these treks can only be completed during the summer season, from mid-June to the end of September. Always check the weather forecast before starting your trek, because even in summer the weather in the mountains can be very unpredictable. The staff in the mountain huts can also always give you good information about the conditions in the mountains.

COVID-19

Covid-19

The Corona pandemic has had its grip on us, and mountain huts in the Alpine region have had to take several preventive measures over the past two years. In the meantime, the first relaxations in the Alps are noticeable, yet it is definitely still a factor to take into account. Some Covid restrictions that are worth mentioning:

- Don't go to the huts if you have symptoms!

- Not all mountain huts are allowed to operate at full capacity yet, so make sure you book your stay in advance.

- To be on the safe side, always take a mouth mask with you.

- In some mountain huts it is still compulsory to bring your own sleeping bag, in others a sheet bag and pillowcase are sufficient. Your personal travel guide will tell you which rules apply to your route.

- Bring your own towel
