Kellerjoch

P1030648

What the locals and many other Tyroleans have always known, now is official: The mountain rising above Schwaz, 2,344 metres high, has been chosen as one of the 150 most beautiful summits in the world. MAMMUT Sports is celebrating its 150th anniversary. For this reason, they selected the 150 most outstanding peaks, which shall now be scaled. The Kellerjoch is one of them, and for a very good reason, for the region surrounding it is a unique paradise for mountain, sports and nature lovers all year round. In summer, it is a perfect Eldorado for hikers and mountaineers, in winter a first-class skiing resort for families and an ideal setting for ski touring and snowshoe hikes.

Pioneer trail to the Pill Waterfall

Tour32 Piller Wasserfall

This short, but very colourful trail was set up by the Schwaz pioneers. Wide forest roads, narrow, steep paths along the waterfall and a meadow that is home to a variety of small animals guarantee an exciting day out for the whole family. However, the route leading along the pioneer trail is very narrow and steep and therefore not suitable for very young children.

Location: Schwaz/Pill
Difficulty: medium
Suitable for families: yes (except young children)
Suitable for prams: no
Length: 3 kilometres
Elevation gain: 160 metres
Duration: 1 hour

To the Falkenhütte via the Hohljoch

Tour4 FalkenhFCtte

From the Eng parking area the forest road leads to the Engalm, which in summer is populated by any number of cows. In the Alm dairy their milk is transformed into the famous Enger Almkas. A hiking trail connects the Engalm with the Hohljoch. The view from there over to the Falkenhütte, with the renowned Laliderer Walls to the south, is quite overwhelming. Below the Laliderer Walls a path leads across to the Spielissjoch, from where a forest road scales the last few metres to the Falkenhütte. Its sun deck offers a stunning view of the Karwendel range and you get a good idea why the latter is so very popular with hikers and mountain bikers. The Falkenhütte, situated 1,848 metres above the sea, is open for visitors from mid June to the end of October. The way back leads along the same route. Overall, this is quite a hike and better suited for older children used to walking long distances.

Location: Hinterriss
Difficulty: red (medium)
Suitable for families: yes
Suitable for prams: no
Length: 13 kilometres
Elevation gain: 700 metres
Duration: 4.5 hour

Those for whom this is not enough can also climb the Mahnkopf (2,094 metres) nearby. This adds about 1.5 hours to the hike. Back down in the valley, the Engalmen or the Alpengasthof Eng, beside the parking lot, invite tired hikers to stop off.
