Innsbruck's Top 10 Half-Day Hikes

Make the most of Innsbruck's excellent public transport and proximity to mountains on these wonderful mini-adventures.

Description

Being a major city with huge mountains on the doorstep, Innsbruck provides that most unusual combination of culture and easily accessible outdoor adventures. In the city itself there is everything you'd expect from a cultural hub - bars, restaurants and museums as well as thriving art and music scenes. In the mountains that ring the city there are adventures of all types and sizes, from easy, short hikes through to steep and scary ski descents.

This guidebooks is focused firmly on the former category and contains 10 beautiful and straightforward hikes. Some of these hikes - such as the Zirbenweg - are only short hikes but the logistics of doing them means that they essentially take up a full day, which is no chore because getting to and from them will take you to some charming Tirolian villages. All of the hikes contained in here can be easily reached using the efficient, cheap and reliable Innsbruck public transport network.

If you've done these hikes and decide that you'd like a little more of a challenge, check out our guidebook to some of the Tirol's finest long hikes -
