From the Adelshof to the Mutterer Alm
The path Innsbrucker Almenweg is a challenging but diverse circular walk that winds around the mountain Nockspitze (Saile) above the western holiday villages.
The tour starts at the bus station Adelshof and continues on a forest path towards the mountain hut Birgitzer Alm (1,803 m). Now and then you reach a forest road, which is used as a sledging trail during winter and is one of the most popular sledging trails surrounding Innsbruck. After a while you leave the forest path and proceed on a track, leading up and down through a rift, the so-called Götzner Graben. Occasionally, the rooty track can get steep. You continue your tour below the peak Pfriemesköpfl and after having passed the hut Götzener Alm, you will reach the inn of the Mutterer Alm. Take a seat on the beautiful terrace of the mountain hut and enjoy the view while having a good old Tyrolean ‚Schmankerl‘ (a dialect word for a small delicious dish).
Descent to Mutters
Via a track you continue from the Mutterer Alm to the spot Hirschlacke and further on towards the valley. The Hirschlacke is a beautiful pond, surrounded by a thick pine forest and many benches for lingering. On a sea level of roughly 1,400 m, the track merges into a forest road and onto a ski slope. On your way down to the village Mutters, you will cross now and again a lane used for mountain-carts – three wheelers ridden by children as well as adults – or the Downhill track of the ‘Mutterer AlmBike Parks’.
Following the road, you will reach Mutters‘ village centre, famous for its traditional houses and with flowers decorated balconies. Take the line Stubaital and enjoy once again the impressive panorama on your way down to Innsbruck.
