Neustift im Stubaital

Neustift im Stubaital, with the mighty Stubai Glacier, is a sought-after destination for hikers and skiers alike.

Altitude: 1,000 m a.s.l.

Already the Romans left their marks in the valley, before it was mentioned for the first time around 1000 AD under the name of "Stupeia". Today its main village, Neustift im Stubaital, located only 25 km from Innsbruck, is surrounded by majestic peaks: Exactly 109 three-thousanders rise at the head of the valley up to the eternal ice of the Stubai Glacier. The village itself, however, is characterised by the St. George Parish Church, the second largest village church of Tyrol.

The hiking highlights have well-sounding names such as Alpine Fauna Trail, WildWaterTrail, Contemplation Trail and Stubai High Route, and take you to wonderful destinations such as the Grawa Waterfall. It is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Austria. If you want to relax on a hot summer day, then you'll find four outdoor swimming pools in the surroundings.

Behind the village rises the mighty Stubai Glacier, where in summer the Stubai Ice Grotto invites to an interesting tour through the eternal ice. In winter, one of the four skiing areas of the valley is located here, the Stubai Glacier Skiing Area, a place of superlatives which reaches up to 3,210 m a.s.l. It is called "Kingdom of Snow". The above mentioned Grawa Waterfall, however, turns into a popular destination for ice climbers...
