Places with big views
Enjoy the gorgeous all-round panoramic view on the summit platform TOP OF TYROL. Up here at 3,210 meters, the Stubaital’s 109 peaks above three thousand meters almost seem close enough to touch. The magnificent panoramic view reaches over the Stubai Alps, to the Dolomites to the Ortler massif. Even the observation platform itself is spectacular. The steel structure projects nine meters over the brow of a cliff and thus also gives the observer the feeling they are floating. It is located at the mountain station Schaufeljoch of the Stubai glacier cableways.
A short, accessible panoramic path leads from the mountain station of Schlick 2000 to another impressive observation platform at a height of 2,160 meters. The “STUBAI BLICK” consists of three footbridges built over the abyss and offers superb views of the Kalkkögel mountain chain in the Stubai and a fantastic long view to the Wilder Kaiser and the Zillertal Alps. The pleasant path leading to the platform also invites one to stop and marvel time after time, thanks to its creative seating designed by artists from Stubai.
The first stage of the WILDEWASSERWEG wild-water trail also offers impressive views. This time, it is not the summits that cause one to gaze in wonder, but instead the elemental force of the water which casts its spell over the visitor. If one follows the WildeWasserWeg on the banks of the initially still gently flowing Ruetzbach, one soon comes to two platforms hanging partly over the abyss and a wooden footbridge, where one can take in and appreciate this unique alpine location, with its spectacular ravine with waterfalls and rapids.
The good accessibility of the Stubaital and the central location of Milderer Hof are ideal for discovering the numerous sights in the surrounding area and entertaining trip destinations for the whole family. Whether it be history and culture, adventure and fun or shopping and urban sightseeing: in just 20 minutes by car, you can reach Tyrol’s capital Innsbruck. But it is also not far to towns such as the idyllic and historical Hall in
Tirol, or Schwaz with its interesting show mine. Near Innsbruck there is the Bergisel, a hill which can be seen from far away, which has two sights in store for visitors: visit the well-known ski-jump, and the museum “Tirol Panorama”, opened in 2011, where you can be amazed by the famous giant circular painting from 1896. On an impressive 1,000 square meters and in an equally fascinating 360-degree view, it shows the
Tyrolean Rebellion led by Andreas Hofer against the Bavarian and French occupation. After this cultural pleasure, we recommend going for a stroll through the beautiful old quarter of Innsbruck, which allows one to combine culinary delights wonderfully with a shopping expedition. We will be happy to help you plan your trips and leisure activities with lots of tips and our insider knowledge.
