A famous, popular and well-trodden path that is still an uplifting experience every time! The Arolla Pine Trail ("Zirbenweg") above Innsbruck runs from the Patscherkofel mountain station to the Tulfein Alm chalet in Tulfes.

The Zirbenweg trail follows a wide, steep path to the Boscheben chalet, which is somewhat hidden away. The trail ascends and descends gently without significant changes in altitude as it runs along the edge of the forest, at an altitude of over 2,000 m, to the Tulfein Alm.Throughout the entire walk, you can look down at the Inn valley and enjoy the breathtaking view of the Karwendel mountain chain opposite. Near Tulfein Alm, you could take the cable car of Glungezerbahn to the valley station to Tulfes in comfort.

Also possible in the opposite direction. 

Alpine botanical garden and Hiking along the forest limit

The Patscherkofel Alpine Garden is the highest botanical garden in Austria and has been in the possession of the University of Innsbruck since 1930. Its favourable location right at the tree line provides the perfect environment for naturally occurring plant communities, such as dwarf shrubs, high forest and tall perennials. Interested visitors (admission free) will enjoy the signed circular walk with information on the sensitive balance of these vulnerable habitats, which deserve to be protected.
