Description

Getting kids out of the house and into the mountains isn't always easy but these hikes will aid you in your task. None of them are too strenuous and all take you through stunning scenery. Best of all they are all serviced by excellent, traditional Tirolian mountain huts which serve great food so maintaining family morale should be straightforward! If you have really young kids, these hikes are all straightforward enough that you can transport your little ones in carriers without needing to tackle any technical ground.

The Tirol is a fabulous area for families and one of the great aspects of the region is how easily accessed the mountains are thanks to the excellent public transport network. Almost all of these hikes can be accessed without the need for a car and all will take you to different parts of the Innsbruck area - by the end of these you'll have a real flavour of what Tirolian hiking (and food!) is all about.
