Spring hike from Lake Herzsee to Hall in Tirol

This walking tour - especially recommended in spring - leads us through the low mountain landscape southeast of Innsbruck, to Judenstein and through the Hasental valley.

The starting point of our tour is located above the village of Aldrans near Lake Herzsee (bus stop). We follow the signposts to the little lake and then the asphalt road through the Herztal valley towards the Wiesenhöfe farms, which we reach after about 15 minutes. From here we enjoy a gorgeous view across blooming meadows to the Nordkette mountain chain and the Inntal valley. We carry on walking through the Knappental valley (circular path, marker n° 16) along a forest road through the wood. The path proceeds slightly downhill until the junction to Judenstein which we follow. A short ascent leads us to the meadows of Rinn, where the small village is located.

The now asphalted path proceeds past the Mooshöfe farms to the Visitation of Mary Church (Mariä Heimsuchung). Along the forest path we walk down into the Zimmertal valley and the forest road leads us to the surroundings of Volderwald, where we change to the other side of the valley. Following the signpost “Hall in Tirol” we walk across the Innbrücke bridge to reach the little town.

Therefore we cross the pedestrian bridge over the Inn river and come straight to the nice centre of Hall in Tirol where our spring walk ends. To come back to our starting point, there is the possibility to take the train and bus (via Innsbruck central station).
