Eagle Walk - Adlerweg

The 413 km long Adlerweg hiking trail takes from the Kaiser Mountains to the Lechtal Alps and to East Tyrol.

The way is the goal - that is the slogan along the Eagle Walk (Adlerweg, in German), snaking across Tyrol. In North Tyrol, the hiking path originates in St. Johann in Tirol, goes past the Wilder Kaiser mountain range, proceeds across the Brandenberg Alps as well as the Karwendel mountain range and ends in the Lechtal Alps near St. Anton am Arlberg. Hiking along the Eagle Walk 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 Eagle Walk? 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 (24 day stages in North Tyrol, 9 in East Tyrol), it takes hikers across the natural landscape and makes them experience the most beautiful places and gives information on customs, trade and history. And the panoramic view is without equal! On the Eagle Walk you have to overcome 31,000 m of altitude difference.

In East Tyrol, however, the Eagle Walk is subdivided into 9 day stages and takes you on a length of 93 km from the foot of the Grossvenediger mountain (3,657 m asl) to the foot of the impressive Grossglockner mountain (3,798 m asl), the highest mountain of Austria. Impressive!
