Go where the eagle flies! The eagle is bold and the Eagle Trail has it all. In the high alpine mountain world, close under the sky, it runs from east to west through the whole of Tyrol. The course of the trail resembles the silhouette of an eagle soaring in the skies with its wings spread wide.

Alpine experience, sure-footedness and a head for heights are the prerequisites for many of the stages in order to be able to take on the challenge: 320 kilometres of hiking between Wilder Kaiser and Arlberg, 24 daily stages from easy to difficult, from gentle to jagged, from exhilarating to extremely strenuous. 23,000 vertical metres uphill, 20,000 vertical metres downhill.

The East Tyrolean Eagle's Path is shorter, but just as grandiose and demanding: nine stages between the Venediger and the Großglockner, 93 kilometres long, about 8,000 metres of altitude uphill and almost as many downhill. Countless steps, hundreds of summits, thousands of magnificent views!

The Patscherkofel is located on the Adlerweg on stage: 13.
