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 3-day Stubaier Höhenweg, you hike two of the most beautiful stages and stay each night in one of the beautiful mountain huts. This version of the Höhenweg starts at the Dresdner Hut and ends at the Sulzenau Hut. Tourismusverband Stubaital ensures that your stay at all huts on the Höhenweg is arranged. Half board will also be booked for you. Thus, you do not have to carry food along on the way and you can relax carefree when you are not hiking.

Dresdner Hütte - Sulzenau Hütte

Duration: 03:20 h
Distance: 5.1 km
Ascent: 410 m

Today is a day with few miles but beautiful views. Enjoy the stony surroundings as you slowly balance over the loose rocks here. Hold on to a cable here and there until you take a break at the Sulzenau See. Then continue walking toward the Sulzenau Hütte and enjoy the glacier-touched rocks.

From the Sulzenau Hütte, it is worth taking an additional hike and visiting the "blauen Lacke." This lake is one of the locations of the Wild Water Trail in the Stubai Mountains. Because the lake is filled with meltwater from the upper glacier, the lake is usually a distinct blue-turquoise color. More information on how to get here can be found in the walking guide.

From the Sulzenau Hütte you hike along the Wildwasserweg in about 2.5 hours to the bus stop in the valley.

Once descended, take bus 590 back to Neustift.
