Adlerweg hiking trail
The 280 km long main route of the Adlerweg starts in St. Johann and ends in St. Anton am Arlberg.
“The way is the goal”, that is the slogan along the Adlerweg hiking path, snaking across Tyrol. The Adlerweg originates in St. Johann in the Tiroler Unterland, goes past the Wilder Kaiser mountain range and proceeds across the Brandenberg Alps and the Rofan as well as Karwendel mountain range and ends in the Lechtal Alps in St. Anton am Arlberg. Hiking along the Adlerweg does not only stand for movement under the open sky, but it also makes you discover peculiarities of local landscape.
Why is this popular hiking path called “Adlerweg”, which means “Eagle hiking path”? When you graph the routes of the Adlerweg on a map, it gives a proud eagle which spreads its wings over Tyrol. However, in 126 stages of various length and difficulty, it takes hikers across the natural landscape and makes them experience the most beautiful places and gives information on customs, trade and history and also offers a panoramic view which is without equal. In the last years new side routes have been added to the main route. In East Tyrol e.g. there are twenty new routes, eight for hikers and twelve alpinists. Moreover there are numerous branches leading into the side valleys of the Inntal, Paznauntal, Kaunertal, Pitztal, Ötztal, Stubaital, Zillertal and Tannheimer Tal valley as well as throughout the area of Kaiserwinkel and Kitzbüheler Alps. No matter if you prefer simple hikes or long and exhausting hikes - the Adlerweg offers something for every taste!
