The Tux Alps, mountains that exclusively stretch in Tyrol, are often also called Tux pre-Alps.
The Tux Alps, named after the village of Tux in a side valley of the Zillertal valley, are exclusively located in Tyrol and stretch from Innsbruck (Patscherkofel mountain) via the Zillertal valley to the area of Schwaz (Kellerjoch mountain). In the Tux Alps, there are several skiing areas such as Hochfügen-Hochzillertal, Glungezer, Kellerjoch and Patscherkofel.
In the north the Tux Alps border on the Karwendel mountain chain, in the north east on the Rofan mountains, in the east on the Kitzbühel Alps and in the west on the Stubai Alps. In the south the Tux Alps border on the Zillertal Alps, the Tuxer Joch saddle connects these two mountain ranges.
Peaks: The highest peak of the Tux Alps is the 2,886 m high Lizumer Reckner, further significant mountains are the Patscherkofel (2,246 m), the Glungezer (2,677 m), the Kellerjoch (2,344 m), the Gilfert (2,506 m) and the Rastkogel (2,762 m).
Trails: The Tux Alps are particularly popular with hikers. The fairytale-like trail from Munich to Venice stretches across this mountain range, past the mountain huts Glungezerhütte, Lizumerhütte and Tuxer-Joch-Haus. Also the long-distance Eagle Path and the Via Alpina as well as the Central Alps trail 02A make you experience the beauty of the Tux Alps from close quarters.
