Leutascher Geisterklamm

Reviewed By PathManSlough - Slough, United Kingdom

My wife and I scheduled a side-trip here while touring the Alpenstrasse last week. It was well worth the visit! Pay Euro 5 for the car park and free access for several routes around the falls. Follow the red one for the easiest access and see some stunning views!

Partnachklamm

Reviewed By Alan F - Bournemouth, United Kingdom

This is a very exciting experience in winter when the ice is well established. It can get very busy and congested. There is a small fee at the entrance. Note that there are no toilet facilities once you enter the gorge. You need waterproof shoes and a camera. At its best in February/March if you want to see the best ice formations.

Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen

Nirgendwo sonst liegt die Grenze zwischen urbanem Raum und rauer Bergwelt so nah zusammen: Mit den Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen gelangt man in nur 20 Minuten vom Stadtzentrum in hochalpines Gelande. Der Besuch auf der Innsbrucker Nordkette lasst in Sachen Aussicht keine Wunsche offen. Bereits an der Bergstation der Hungerburgbahn erscheint den Besuchern die Landeshauptstadt Innsbruck aus einem vollig neuen Blickwinkel: 300 Meter uber der Stadt geniesst man den traumhaften Ausblick auf die Hauptstadt der Alpen. Mit der Seegrubenbahn erreicht man kurz darauf die 1905 Meter hoch gelegene Seegrube. Von dort offnet sich der Blick auf das gesamte mittlere Inntal, die Stubaier und Zillertaler Alpen und uber das Wipptal bis zur nahe gelegenen italienischen Landesgrenze. Fur den Aussichtshohepunkt geht es mit der Hafelekarbahn weiter auf das 2256 Meter hohe Hafelekar: Dort steht die dicht besiedelte Inntalfurche auf der einen Seite im Kontrast zur unbesiedelten Wildnis des Alpenparks Karwendel auf der anderen Seite. Im Spannungsfeld zwischen Stadt und Berg werden die Eindrucke hoch uber Innsbruck zum einzigartigen Erlebnis

Highly recommend this ride, you get great views of the city. Be sure to go right to the top. there are 3 stops along the ride. However, if the weather is bad, they will not go further than the 2nd stop. The ride is easy and comfortable. there is a restaurant one of the stop.
sensational trip and very picturesque.

Ferchensee Lake

Reviewed By Westacres - Alnwick, Northumberland

We walked here from Mittenwald. the signs indicated that it would take about 90 minutes but we did it in an hour.
The walk is beautiful and there and many paths that you can take through lovely scenery. When you reach the lake it opens out in front of you and is quite stunning. The lake is used for swimming and has facilities on the edge. It is a great place to sunbathe or just spend a couple of hours chilling. There is a snack house and for something more substantial at the fare end of the lake is Fechensee Hotel and restaurant with great food.
After refreshments you can take one of several well marked paths back to you home destination.

Seekirchl

Reviewed By chickandbeast - Durham, Canada

Seekirchl in the austrian alps is a very perfect picturesque setting. A landmark in this Olympic region of Tirol, at the western entrance to Seefeld, and visible from far away.
The Seekirchl church is the town’s most famous landmark. Construction on the octagonal Baroque structure began in 1628 and the church was consecrated in 1666.
The spiritual centrepiece is the cross on the main altar to which the construction of the church is attributable. There are reports of two events from the period when the cross still stood out in the open, the first of which claims that a pilgrim, in a state of deep repentance, was absolved from her sins through clear words spoken by the cross in front of which she had prayed.
The second event that led to the construction of the church was the occasion when Archduke Leopold V who, when passing the miraculous cross for the first time, was so moved by the sight of it, that he requested a priest be brought so he could confess his sins and he immediately pledged to erect a chapel in which to house the cross. He fulfilled this pledge by building the first Seekirchl chapel. The two events are depicted on the wall frescoes on the right and left hand sides.

Alpenbad

Reviewed By bort277 - Innsbruck, Austria

a beautiful bath - the swim-hall indoor/outdoor is nice - still just during low season. if you visit during peak season / weekends you will face crowded pools - loads of children and fully booked deck-chairs. that's what one can count with.
but a real hazzle is the fully crowded sauna-area. the saunas and steam bath are far too small for the amount of people, the number of deck chairs same much to small. we couldnt even find a place to sit. also the beautiful in/outdoor pool is closed due to reconstruction (in peak season!?!)
so NOT WORTH AT ALL !
i recommend the Seefeld Bath.

I walked here in the falling snow and it was beautiful. It is nice in summer too with big fish in the water ! There is a gasthof right by with great food and drink. Well worth the walk.
