Hike at over 3,000 metres above sea level, cross the glacier and stop off at Austria’s highest mountain restaurant. An ever-present feature: breathtaking views of a fascinating mountain world with 109 peaks of 3,000 metres or greater.

Special highlight along the way: The TOP OF TYROL summit platform. At a height of 3,210 metres, it protrudes audaciously nine metres beyond the cliff edge, like the tip of a sword. It’s no wonder that it was chosen by GEO magazine as one of the ten most beautiful viewing platforms in the world. A short detour to the Schaufeljoch chapel at the foot of the Schaufelspitze is also recommended.
