What’s better than stopping off at one of the quaint mountain huts or lodges after a demanding mountain hike? With sweet Kaiserschmarren, hearty Kaspressknödel or a ploughman’s platter, you can properly enjoy the glorious summer days.
Hiking pass - for gourmets
A stamp isn’t awarded for conquering a peak. The hiking pass in the Tyrolean Oberland tempts you with culinary treats. The “gourmet points” are given out at various lodges and mountain inns where there are particularly good regional dishes. If you manage to collect all the points, you’ll have truly discovered the real and unspoiled mountain world of the Tyrolean Oberland and learnt that many mountain huts still function as true lodges with dairy production and aren’t just huts where tourists can stop. As a present for collecting all the points, you’ll receive practical items for your rucksack such as bandanas, drinking bottles or snack boards.
You can collect them from your host or in the tourist information office.
