Overview

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. 
 
This is the 3-day Stubaier Höhenweg, but with accommodation in a three-star guesthouse before and after the hike. On this version of the Stubaier Höhenweg, you hike two of the most beautiful stages and spend every 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 is also booked for you and this version of the hike comes with a guesthouse before and after the hike. This means you don't have to carry food along with you on the way and you can relax without worrying when you're not hiking.
 
Why book with Bookatrekking.com?
 
You can do the Stubaier Höhenweg completely independently. However, putting together the right route including booking all accommodations can be a complicated matter. Tourismusverband Stubai has warm contacts with all cabins on the Stubaier Höhenweg and they are happy to take that burden off your shoulders. Contact our Trekking Experts for free travel advice and arranging your hike will be a piece of cake. 

Route

What's the plan?

Arrival in Neustift
Servus! Welcome to Austria. Today you arrive in Neustift and are expected in a pleasant three-star guesthouse in the village. Your overnight stay includes breakfast. 

Day 1) Neustift to Dresdner Hütte
After breakfast take bus 590 towards Neustift i. St. Mutterbergalm and get off at the last stop, Mutterbergalm. For the most beautiful hike, go via Mutterberg Tal and the Wilde Grube in two hours to the Dresdner Hütte.

Vertical gain: 540 m up
Duration: 2 hours
Distance: 2 km
Lowest point: 1,750  m
Highest point: 2.290 m
 
Day 2)  Dresdner Hütte - Sulzenau Hütte
The fourth stage of our circuit lies between Dresdner Hütte and Sulzenau Hütte. Almost 900 meters of altitude difference and 4.1 km have to be overcome on this stage. In good weather, it is worth making a detour to the "blaue Lacke", one of the venues of the Wildwasserweg (Wild Water Way) in the Stubai. The glacier water gives the moraine lake a distinct blue-turquoise color.
 
Vertical gain: 400 m down to 500 m
Duration: 3 hours
Distance: 4 km
Lowest point: 2,194 m
Highest point: 2,682 m
 
Day 3)  Sulzenau Hütte - Neustift
From the Sulzenau Hütte you hike along the Wildwasserweg in about 1.5 hours to the bus stop in the valley. So you may still have time for walks in the region of Sulzenau Hütte before you start your descent.  On the way you will encounter some beautiful waterfalls. Once descended, take bus 590 back to Neustift.

Vertical gain: 580 m down
Duration: 1,5 hours
Distance: 5 km
Lowest point: 1.600 m
Highest point: 2.180 m

Departure Day
After breakfast you can check out. This is the end of the adventure in the Stubai valley. We hope to see you again soon. Grüß Gott!

Accommodation

Accommodation

On the Stubaier Höhenweg the following huts are included: 

Dresdner Hütte
This mountain hut was built by the Dresdner section of the German Alpine Association in 1887 in Upper Fernau. The hut is 5 minutes from the middle station of the Stubai Glacier cable car. Renovated and modernized in 2008, the hut offers accommodation for hikers, mountaineers and skiers. There are numerous facilities such as running hot and cold water, sauna, ski/shoe drying room, comfortable guest lounges and excellent cuisine. 


Sulzenau Hütte
The Sulzenauhütte is a fantastic place to spend a few days in the mountains. Fantastically located in the "green", where young and old can indulge. Dive into the crystal clear lake, climb to the summit cross on the Aperen Freiger (3,262 m) or simply enjoy the "Alpine life" with a latte and apple strudel. And always the Sulzenaugletscher in sight!

FAQ

Where is the Stubaier Höhenweg? 
The Stubaier Höhenweg begins in Neustift im Stubaital in the Austrian Tyrol not far from Innsbruck. 
 
How difficult is the Stubaier Höhenweg? 
The Stubaier Höhenweg is one of the most beautiful high-altitude hiking trails in the Alps, but also places corresponding demands on hikers. The route runs exclusively through mountainous terrain and is partly secured with steel cables. Experience with high altitude mountain trails is a prerequisite when booking the Stubaier Höhenweg. 
 
Especially in bad weather, the difficulty of the high altitude trail increases significantly. Glaciers do not have to be climbed or crossed during the entire route, but steep old snowfields are to be expected, especially at the beginning of the season. Light crampons or spikes and potentially an ice pick can be very useful on these old snowfields. In the meantime, most areas at risk of falling are equipped with steel cables. A three- or four-day Stubaier Höhenweg can be done by families, but if you want to do the entire circuit, it is best to be fully prepared. Only do this if you have done a shorter hut trek before. 
 
Best season for the Stubaier Höhenweg
The season for the Stubaier Höhenweg is short, but it is worth it. And if you miss the season, then you should know that there are plenty of winter sports opportunities in the pre-season and in the winter season. The huts usually open in June, and it will be possible to complete the entire high-level trail from the beginning of July. In June you can still expect some snow on the left and right, which will prevent you from doing some stages. The best months for the Stubaier Höhenweg are July, August, and September.
 
The weather in the mountains can be unpredictable and sometimes it is too dangerous to continue the trail. This can force you to spend an extra night in the hut where you are staying. This is for your own safety. A telephone call to the nearest hut will ensure that you can continue your high-altitude trail on a clear day.
