With 34 three-thousand-meter peaks, the Pitztal Valley is blessed with a wealth of high alpine summits. Mountaineers are mainly drawn to the Wildspitze, which is the highest peak in North Tyrol at 3,774 meters. During the winter and also during the summer, you can climb the “Tyrolean rooftop” directly from the Pitztal Valley. Sports climbers appreciate the Pitztal Valley and the quality of its cliffs. Six climbing areas offer routes of varying difficulty. Bouldering areas and via ferrata complete the offer for alpinists.
The ice-covered three-thousand-meter peaks of the Pitztal Valley attracted mountaineers early on. The Braunschweigerhütte was built as soon as 1892, and five other Alpine Club cabins followed. Today, alpinists are naturally drawn to the Wildspitze, which can be reached via several interesting summer routes from the Pitztal Valley. But also climbers get their money’s worth in the Pitztal Valley. The small but excellent climbing gardens mostly consist of solid bedrock—and, of course, the view of the snow-covered peaks is breathtaking.
Besides the Wildspitze, the Pitztal Valley has many other alpine tours to offer. In addition to easy alpine tours for beginners, you will find real alpine classics such as the east ridge on the Watzespitze (IV) or the east ridge on the Seekogel (III). The Pitztal mountain guides are the perfect contact for alpine adventures. The weekly program includes the right tours, even for beginners.
