The Stubaier Höhenweg, or the Stubai High Trail, is one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the Austrian Alps. The hike begins in the village of Neustift in Stubaital in the heart of Tyrol, not far from Innsbruck. The Stubaier Höhenweg is the highlight of hut hikes in Austria and can be walked by young and old if they are sufficiently prepared.

During this 9-day Stubaier Höhenweg you hike all the stages and stay each night in one of the beautiful mountain huts. This version of the Höhenweg starts at the Starkenburger Hut and ends at the Innsbrucker Hut on the other side of the valley. Tourismusverband Stubaital ensures that your stay at all huts on the Höhenweg is arranged. Half board will also be booked for you. That way, you don't have to carry food along with you on the way and you can relax carefree when you're not hiking.



Neustift - Starkenburger Hütte

Duration: 04:10 h
Distance: 5.7 km
Ascent: 1230 m
From Neustift, your day begins with a steep climb toward the Stubai Mountains. In total, you have to overcome approximately a height difference of more than 1,200 meters. Steadily the path leads uphill until you reach the Starkenburger Hütte almost 6 kilometers later. In this hut we have reserved a place for you but the payment takes place on the spot as this has to be done in cash. Make sure you bring enough.
