In the heart of Tyrol, just south of the mountainous culture of Innsbruck, is the Wipptal not only the main crossing of the Alps - the Brenner - but also charming mountain areas: the Stubai Alps and the western edge of the Zillertal Alps are worthwhile goals for all forms of alpine recreational enjoyment - contemplative walks, high alpine glacier tours or "wild" rock climbing. In a small area, all the distinctiveness of the rudimentary and yet well developed Tyrolean country converge: old mountain farms alongside modern lifts, secluded huts with fresh mountain meadows above the hustle and bustle of the valleys.
Walter Klier, Innsbruck poet, author and expert guide, has selected 50 rewarding day hikes from the immeasurable wealth of tour options in his mountain home, thoroughly revised in this fourth edition of the Rother walking guide. The routes range from simple valley walks to higher altitude ascents.
Brief but precise driving directions, detailed maps in a scale of 1:50.000 or 1:75.000, ideal and meaningful elevation profiles ensure touring ideas are easily and safely understandable. The colour grading system and tour characteristics facilitate the selection of routes, while numerous photographs rouse the wanderlust. Tips and information on destinations and natural beauty as well as information on cultural attractions extend the hiking enjoyment, a superb holiday companion for the whole family.Walter Klier | Bergverlag Rother | 5 Edition October 2013 | 128 pages | 71 color illustrations, 50 walking maps at 1:50.000 / 1:75.000, 50 height profiles, an overview map at a scale of 1:250.000 | Format 11.5 x 16.5 cm | Paperback with Polytex Lamination
