Wipptal Summer Vacation : 998 - 1.450 meters

Vacation in the Wipptal

The Wipptal is the main valley, that runs from about Innsbruck to the Italian border.
The region Wipptal consists of the main valley and a few smaller valleys. The main valley runs from about Innsbruck to the Italian border.

The smaller valleys are largely protected natural areas, and are perfect to enjoy the many hikin routes.

The Gschnitztal and the Valser Tal are known worldwide and famous for the beautiful nature, still in original condition.

The Naviser Tal is like a secret valley, where not many tourists go. Here you can still enjoy the originality of the Tyrolean landscape. The meadows and Jausenstations serve local delicacies.

Steinach am Brenner is the "capital" of the valley, and here are also a number of shops.

Shops can also be found in Matrei am Brenner, but many tourists find this place less attractive.

The valley is central, and so you can easily make day trips to Innsbruck, but also far into Italy.

The Wipptal is a beautiful and peaceful vacation destination, that has a lot to offer.

Mountain Sports
Although less known, probably due to less advertising than the more famous valleys, this region is one of the best destinations if you like hiking or mountain biking.

Throughout the valleys there are hiking routes and trails for mountain biking, all well marked and maintained. Various climbing routes are available.

Water Sports
The region offers several pools, including the swimming pool in Steinach am Brenner.

Rowing is possible on the Obernberger See, which is definitely recommended, although the lake is only accessible after a hike up from about 45 minutes.

Do you really want to enjoy the water, then a walk to the Lichtsee is recommended. One of the most beautiful mountain lakes in Tyrol.

The Brennersee.
The Brennersee lies at the border and near the Brenner.

Here are remnants of the old Roman road, which was used by the Roman troops traveling to the old Germania.

Even in later times, the Brenner was regularly used by armies and migratory populations.
