The eagle is a proud, majestic animal and Adlerweg (German for “Eagle’s Path”) is equally impressive. High up in the Alps, just beneath the sky, it runs across all of Tyrol from east to west. Its course mimics the silhouette of an eagle soaring in the air with

the wings spread wide. Many stages require experience in alpine terrain and a head for heights to overcome various challenges. 320 kilometres of hiking trails and 24 day stages - gentle and challenging ones, flowing and taxing ones - await you between Kaisergebirge and Arlberg. You will cover 23,000 metres of elevation change uphill and 20,000 downhill.

East Tyrol’s Adlerweg is shorter, but equally magnificent and trying: Nine stages between the Venediger and Großglockner mountains, 93 kilometres in length, approx. 8,000 metres of elevation change uphill and almost as many going down. Countless steps, hundreds of peaks, thousands of great vistas!
