  • Galtür – Panoramatour Verwall

    • open / not prepared: 12 km
    • m medium

    The starting point ‘Friedrichshafener Hut' car park is located in the Valzur area between Ischgl and Galtür and is accessible either by car or by bus (Piel bus stop – then walk a short section out of the valley).

    The route proceeds upwards, in lots of switchbacks, but is never too steep - you cover some 500 meters to reach your destination. A fantastic viewing point beneath Friedrichshafener Hut (closed in the winter), with views to the impressive mountains in the Silvretta and Samnaun groups. Return via the same route.

  • Galtür – Tschaffein – Waldkapelle

    • open / not prepared: 9 km
    • m medium

    The hike starts at the football pitch in Galtür, first walking along the Trisanna stream over level terrain to the hamlet of Tschaffein.

    From there, take the footway to the "Rifugio" holiday homes and then a short bit along the A-road, before continuing left back onto the steamrolled winter hiking trail. Above the road, hike through the woodland until walking down to the wildlife park along Valzurbach stream. After a short climb, continue along level terrain through the forest until getting to the romantically located forest chapel, and then the hamlet of Tschaffein, before arriving back in Galtür again. The entire circuit of a total of 9 km (from and back to Galtür) does require some fitness - but any effort is soon forgotten when taking in the views of the mighty Ballunspitze (2,671 m) rising up from Galtür. Those who think this is too far can shorten the circuit by hiking only to the wildlife park and taking a bus back to Galtür from there.
