If you decide to go hiking, we recommend the Innsbruck Alpine Pasture Trail, taking you to several mountain huts.
Altitude: 830 m a.s.l.
Beside Natters, also Mutters is located at the entrance of the beautiful Stubaital valley. The area at the foot of Mt. Nockspitze was already settled about 3,000 years ago, while "Muttres" was mentioned for the first time in 1100 AD. The name derives from the Rhaeto-Romance term "Mutt", which means "hill", referring to the location of Mutters on a low mountain terrace. In the freedom fights of Tyrol, the village was heavily affected, and in the battles at the Bergisel in May and August 1809 the freedom fighter Andreas Hofer had its headquarters at the "Schupfenwirt" in Mutters.
The Muttereralm Cable Car starts right in the village: In summer, the eponymous alpine pasture at 1,608 m a.s.l. is a popular excursion destination with adventure restaurant, panoramic pond and the Muttereralm Park with its bike park. In winter, the Muttereralm - Mutters Alpine Pasture - turns into a skiing area with 16.5 km of slopes which can be reached from Mutters and Götzens. Highlights are the kids' park, the three toboggan runs and the family downhill runs.
If you would like to explore the mountain word, we recommend you the Innsbruck Alpine Pasture Trail, taking you towards east from the Muttereralm to the Raitiser and Kreith Alpine Pastures and further on into the Stubaital valley. In a westerly direction, however, it leads to the Götzens, Birgitz and Kematen Mountain Huts, all of them located above the eponymous villages. In winter, the surroundings of Mutters are considered to be one of the best areas for ski tours...
