The 413 km long Adlerweg path takes from the Kaiser Mountains to the Lechtal Alps and to East Tyrol.
The Adlerweg, or Eagle Trail, is the most famous hiking path of the region. In North Tyrol, it originates in St. Johann, goes past Mt. Wilder Kaiser and across the Brandenberg Alps, proceeds to the Karwendel Mountains, and ends in the Lechtal Alps near St. Anton am Arlberg. When you graph the routes of the trail on a map, it gives a proud eagle which spreads its wings over Tyrol.
However, in 33 day stages of various length and difficulty, it makes hikers experience the most beautiful places and gives information on customs, trade and history. And the panoramic view is without equal! On the Eagle Trail you have to overcome 31,000 m of altitude difference. In East Tyrol, it is subdivided into 9 day stages and takes you on a length of 93 km from the foot of Mt. Grossvenediger (3,657 m a.s.l.) to the Grossglockner (3,798 m a.s.l.), the highest peak of Austria.
