The eagle is the undisputed king of the air. Silent and soundless he watches the valleys and mountains from a bird eye's view. Gliding high up in the sky he has become a symbol of freedom. Walkers and hikers in the Tirolean mountains should experience the same light-heartedness. Therefore the eagle gave its name to the scenic long-distance hiking route.
The Eagle Walks' 280-kilometer long main route runs the length of Tirol: from St. Johann in the Unterland region past the majestic Wilder Kaiser mountain range, on through the Brandenberger Alps, the Rofan and Karwendel mountains, and through the Lechtal Alps to St. Anton am Arlberg. Hiking is the best way to experience, enjoy, and appreciate a country and its people, to discover its charm and character. Hiking in Tirol's mountains allows you to discover the country's soul. Those who did the Eagle Walk have truly explored Tirol's beauty. The regional route leads into the side valleys of Inntal, Paznauntal, Kaunertal, Pitztal, Ötztal, Stubaital and Zillertal, into Tannheimer Tal, Kaiserwinkl and through the Kitzbühel Alps. Osttirol also boasts its own small Eagle Walk which takes you to the region's most beautiful spots and greatest peaks.
