Hikers wishing to discover the largest and oldest alpine village in Tyrol and the Großer Ahornboden in the Karwendel Nature Park on their own should leave very early. Six hours in one direction are estimated, so the hiking bus is often used for the return journey. Mountain purists discover natural beauty every Wednesday together with a ranger from the Karwendel Nature Park. The meeting point is the Bärenrast car park at the entrance to Stallental. After the impressive forest of the gorges, the ascent and crossing of the Lamsenjoch require sure-footedness and physical fitness. It is located at an altitude of over 1,000 meters up to the Lamsenjochhütte just under 2,000 meters. From there you descend into the Eng, the largest alpine village in Tyrol with the natural monument Großer Ahornboden, where around 600 cows graze in the summer. The approximately 2,000 plane trees in front of the rugged rock faces of the Karwendel are a real feast for the eyes. If you want to linger a little longer in the midst of this unique scenery, you should stay at the Alpengasthof Eng. You can reach this place of power quickly and easily with the Eng bus, which goes up the Achensee from the communities every Wednesday. of the Karwendel silver region. The Almdorf Eng is known for its excellent mountain cheese and is also interesting for children: there is a lot to do in the Eng-Alm playground with mountain hut, stable and small dairy. The hiking guide Walter is the companion of the beautiful Binsalm.
Every day an experience in the Karwendel silver region
The Silberregion Karwendel summer program also includes easier leisure tours. For example, the excursion with the herbalist Gerda or the short night excursion to Tratzberg Castle with the legends told by the damsel Rebecca. A staple is the weekly city tour in Schwaz. Every Thursday the glittering story of the silver city takes place, even in otherwise inaccessible places, such as on the roof of the parish church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. With the tourist bus, guests and locals can easily reach some of the most beautiful places in the region. Starting from the Jenbach train station, Tratzberg Castle, Wolfsklamm, Stans, Schwaz city center, Freundsberg Castle, Museum of Nations and the silver mine are all climate friendly. With the new Hüttentaxi, the mountain and summit experience in the Silberregion Karwendel comes very close: every day from Monday to Friday, energy and favorite places such as Pirchnerast, Weidener Hütte, Hüttegg, Loassattel and Umlberg open up new perspectives. A tip for pleasure: the renewed circular trail on the Loassattel / Hochpillberg and a stop at a refuge for a Loas Schnitzel. In summer, climbing enthusiasts reach victory at the summit of the Karwendel. The climbing camp for beginners (24.-26.06.22 + 01.-03.07.22) on the rock faces around the Lamsenjochhütte requires sure-footedness, head for height and good physical condition. As soon as the basic knowledge is “obtained”, the first climbing tour with an experienced mountain guide follows.
