Ferienregion Imst

From centuries-old carnival celebrations to outdoor attractions and activities, this holiday region around the small town of Imst at the foot of the Lechtal Alps offers much for visitors to see and do.

Rich in history, the small town of Imst offers visitors magnificent views of the surrounding region and is a haven for holidaymakers in search of both culture and action. Thanks to its position at the foot of the Lechtal Alps at an altitude of 827m it enjoys many hours of sunshine and draws guests with a combination of traditions, customs, museums and galleries. Imst is famous throughout the region and beyond for its “Schemenlaufen”, a carnival procession which sees local men and boys dress up in colourful costumes and parade through the streets.


Plenty to discover for amateur geologists

While the “Schemenlaufen” happens only once every four years, the Hoch-Imst ski and hiking area draws visitors in both summer and winter. Modern cable cars transport outdoor enthusiasts up to its ski slopes and hiking trails, while the town itself is home to a rock climbing centre open throughout the year. Fans of geology should visit the nearby Rosengartenschlucht, a 1.5km gorge just outside Imst which is one of the most important biotopes in Tirol and a popular excursion for nature lovers, walkers and amateur geologists.

There are nine villages in the Imst region, each of which has its own unique charm. For example, Schönwies offers hikers magnificent views of the Alpine landscape along the Panoramasteig trail and the toboggan run, while visitors to Karrösten can explore the geology trail or hone their rock climbing skills at the indoor boulder centre. From the village of Roppen it is just a short drive to the Area 47 outdoor adventure park packed with adrenaline-pumping activities.


Hiking in Imst Region

Craggy peaks, deep canyons and themed hiking trails - the region around Imst invites walkers and hikers to explore the stunning Lechtal Alps and discover the region's long and proud history.

The region around the pretty town of Imst is home to plenty of adventures for outdoor enthusiasts - for example the hike onto the Muttekopf mountain, with spectacular views from its summit at 2,050 metres above sea level stretching as far as the Gurgeltal Valley and the northern peaks of the Ötztal Alps. Two stages of the Eagle Walk lead through the region. There are also two more long-distance hiking trails in the form of the Starkenberg Panorama Trail and the Via Claudia Augusta, the latter of which leads along a former Roman road. Both are long and challenging, requiring good fitness and a head for heights. There is also plenty to see, do and explore for families with children. We recommend a walk through the Rosengartenschlucht, a canyon beginning in Imst and leading all the way to the Blue Grotto, a former mining area which takes its name from its shimmering blue water.

Towered by the rugged Lechtal Alps, Imst Region is a mountain biker’s playground, offering everything from easy tours to challenging singletrack.

All across Imst Region in Oberinntal Valley, pedal pushers and electric bikers get up close and personal with the stunning scenery while filling up their lungs with crisp mountain air.

With many appealing road cycling routes, cyclists can choose from beginner to expert terrain. For a memorable Electric Bike Tour, drive across scenic Gurgltal Valley to the top of Fern Pass and get a good grip your handlebars before flying down. What’s more, Imst is conveniently located on the Inn Cycle Path, which offers amazing riding in both directions, toward Innsbruck and toward Landeck. A local must-see is Rosengarten Canyon in Imst, one of Austria’s most spectacular natural sights. A scenic walking trail takes you from the heart of Imst up to the Blue Grotto via a delightful series of beautiful wooden boardwalks and stone steps. Each year, the first weekend in May is dedicated to cycling – the grand Cycle Opening offers a full slate of cycling and cultural activities.


Climbing in Imst Region

With a huge range of rock climbing routes, the region around the small town of Imst is one of the top climbing locations in Tirol.

Experienced climbers will enjoy the high-alpine terrain on the Hahntennjoch mountain with its challenging "Psychowandl" rockface or the more than 2,700-metre-high Hintere Platteinspitze, while beginners and families will find plenty of easy climbing in areas such as the "Botanischer Garten" near Nassereith and the Klettergarten Walchenbach.

The indoor and outdoor climbing centre in Imst offers no fewer than 200 routes, giving climbing enthusiasts the chance to scale the heights whatever the weather. And, last but not least, tired climbers descending from the rock climbing area next to the Muttekopfhütte or the Latschenturm rockface can take the easy way down on the Alpine Coaster, a summer toboggan run winding its way down the mountain to Hoch-Imst.


Sport climbing in the region around Imst

Climbers with experience in high-alpine terrain should head for the south-facing Hahntennjoch. With more than 130 routes, including some suitable for beginners, the Rote Wand in Karres is also a good tip. However, most of the climbing areas are to be found near the small town of Nassereith. An example is the Klettergarten Sparchet with over 100 routes categorised from 2 to 8 on the international difficulty rating scale.


Multi-pitch routes in the region around Imst

There are no fewer than ten areas around Imst offering multi-pitch climbing routes. One of the most popular can be found on the Hintere Platteinspitze mountain at almost 2,700 metres above sea level. The rockfaces at the Gamspfeiler near Nassereith also offer challenging but safe climbing. The Engelkarturm is another good tip for those who like long climbs, while the recently created routes on the Muttetürme can be combined with a ski tour in the spring.

The beautiful Hanauer Klettersteig via ferrata, which includes a long rope bridge, is suitable for both beginners and experts. Climbers wishing to take on the Leite-Klettersteig via ferrata should have good general fitness and strength. Families and beginners will enjoy the relatively short via ferrata near the Muttekopfhütte hut. Nearby but more challenging is the Imster Klettersteig via ferrata at 2,200m, which now has a new descent. It includes some difficult sections (category D).

Climbing for families in Imst

Built just a few years ago with the help of local schoolchildren, the Kofnertal climbing area near Hoch-Imst has excellent safety stadards and is ideal for beginners. A little further below, near a waterfall, is the Putzenwald climbing area with a somewhat larger variety of routes measuring up to 32 metres in length. Families wishing to climb near Nassereith should head for the Botanischer Garten on the edge of the village. There is also a climbing area between Tarrenz and Walchenbach.
