Tyrol's Adlerweg trail through the Kitzbüheler Alpen - Tyrol's number one long-distance hiking trail
Tyrol's Adlerweg trail proceeds in 23 stages, covering 300km right through Tyrol, from St. Johann in the Tyrolean Unterland via the Karwendel, right up to St. Anton am Arlberg and is therefore Tyrol's number one long-distance hiking trail.
The eagle was chosen as the 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 province of Tyrol. From relaxed leisure hikers, to experienced alpinists, everyone will find terrain to suit them on Tyrol's Aderlweg trail. At every turn hikers can learn more about the history of the province, about its traditions, handcrafts and about the people of Tyrol.
The regional routes of Tyrol's Adlerweg trail right through the Kitzbüheler Alpen
Away from the main route from St. Johann to St. Anton am Arlberg there are exceedingly attractive regional routes into the lateral valleys in the Kitzbüheler Alpen. The regional routes are essentially connected to the main route, so various routes can be easily combined. The first stage of the Adlerweg trail starts right in the middle of the Kitzbüheler Alpen, or to be more exact, at Rummlerhof in St.Johann in Tyrol. The first stage proceeds to the south side of the Kaiser mountains to the wonderful Schleier waterfalls, continuing to Gaudeamushütte.

More information about Tyrol's Adlerweg trail and the main route
Along the spread of the eagle's wings from St. Johann in Tyrol to St. Anton am Arlberg. Generally the trails are, according to official classification, designated as hiking trails and red mountain trails. More difficult stages can be side-stepped for easier routes (not shown on the map). This means that other stages of the main route are bypassed. This includes the stage from Steinberg am Rofan via the Schafsteigsattel to Erfurter Hütte (U7), the king’s stage from Karwendelhaus to Birkkarspitze and continuing to Hallerangerhaus and Hallerangeralm (U11), along with the stage from Stuttgarter Hütte via the Trittscharte to Ulmer Hütte (U22). For those interested in culture, the Adlerweg trail provides a special city hike (12a), where you can hike to see Tyrol’s cultural assets. Those of you who don’t chance upon any eagles during your hike can do so in Alpenzoo, where golden eagle couple ‘Donna & Max’ keep an eye on their eyrie (stage 12).
