Turn-by-turn directions

This difficult yet rewarding hike for experienced hikers with a head for heights starts in the center of Dorf Tirol/Tirolo. Between the school building and the kindergarten the trail heads uphill until just before you reach the Farmerkreuz inn. At the Farmerkreuz follow the signposts for the Muthoefe steeply uphill to the Talbauer (lower Muthof farms at 1172 m a.s.l). From here head uphill on trail no. 24 to the Talbauer inn and ultimately the Hochmuth (1350 m). The Vellauer Felsenweg trail descends from the inn. Trail no. 22, which is secured with cables and is only for surefooted walkers with a head for heights, leads down to Vellau (966 m). Continue further downhill on trail no. 26 through the woods to Birbamegg farm. Follow the signposts for route 26 via St. Peter and Tyrol Castle to Dorf Tirol.
