Tirol's Adlerweg trail is Tirol's number one long distance hiking trail
Tirol's Adlerweg trail proceeds right through Tirol in twenty three stages, covering three hundred kilometres, from St. Johann in the Tirol Lowlands, across the Karwendel up to St. Anton am Arlberg, making it Tirol's number one long distance hiking trail. The eagle was chosen as a symbol since the shape of the route is reminiscent of its wings and because the "King of the skies" embodies pride, freedom and strength - just like the proud state of Tirol. From a leisure-oriented hiker to an experienced Alpinist, everyone will find terrain to suit them on Tirol's Adlerweg trail. At every turn hikers will learn more about the history of the state, about the traditions, handcrafts and about the Tirol people.
The regional routes of Tirol's Adlerweg trail proceed right through the Kitzbüheler Alpen
Away from the main route from St. Johann to St. Anton am Arlberg are the really attractive regional routes into the lateral valleys in the Kitzbüheler Alpen. In general the regional routes are connected to the main route, which means that the various routes can be easily combined. The first stage of the Adlerweg trail starts in the middle of the Kitzbüheler Alpen, or more precisely at Rummlerhof in St.Johann in Tirol. On the south side of the Kaiser mountains, this initial stage goes to the wonderful Schleier waterfalls and continues to Gaudeamushütte.

More information about Tirol's Adlerweg trail and the main route
Along the spread of the eagle's wings from St. Johann in Tirol to St. Anton am Arlberg. You tackle routes which are, according to official classification, designated as 'red' mountain trails and hiking trails. These more difficult stages may be avoided by taking the easier bypass routes (not marked in the map). Other stages of the main routes can also be avoided. This includes the stage from Steinberg am Rofan via the Schafsteig saddle to Erfurter Hütte (U7), the Königsetappe stage from Karwendelhaus to the Birkkar peak, continuing to Hallerangerhaus and Hallerangeralm (U11), and also the stage from Stuttgarter Hütte via the Trittscharte to Ulmer Hütte (U22). For those of you who are interested in culture, the Adlerweg trail provides a special town hike (12a), where you hike to and take a look at Tirol's cultural assets. Those who don't come across any eagles while out on their hike can do so in the Alpine zoo, where eagle couple 'Donna & Max' watch over their eyrie (stage 12).
