Awaiting you in the Stubaital is a seemingly endless network of excellent, signposted hiking paths of all difficulty levels. Places of power such as idyllic alpine meadows and the pristine high mountain landscape transport leisurely hikers and mountain hikers to another world far from the hectic pace of everyday life.

The exciting tree house trail is reachable directly from Sporthotel Cristall via the Schlick 2000, and it offers an unforgettable experience for the whole family. The path is easy to hike and is also accessible by children’s stroller. The magical tree house trail stretches out from the forest floor up into the treetops and the home of the dwarf Bardin. For his home in the various tree houses, the friendly dwarf used sustainable building materials from the surroundings, and with a love for detail, he made these materials into a dwarf playground, a dwarf treasure chamber, a dwarf kitchen, a dwarf bedroom, and dwarf workshop.
The adventure-seeking dwarf Bardin will take little visitors into his magical realm of giant trees, slides, zip line, tunnels, games, and excitement. In days gone by, the dwarf mined for precious metals in the Stubai Alps. Bardin also invites visitors of the tree house trail to go on a treasure hunt. The treasure maps are available at the entrance of the trail.
In the spruce forest between the Panoramasee lake and the Froneben mid station in the Schlick 2000 ski and hiking area, the family-friendly disc trail provides excitement. The path, which is accessible with children’s strollers, is 1.5 km long and takes around 1 hour to hike. Special wooden discs accompany the hiker down into the valley as they roll down a rail on the edge of the path. At the different stations where the discs are inserted, tricky tasks must be completed and the perfect touch is needed. The real challenge is making sure the disc doesn’t fall to the ground. At the ticket office of the valley station, you can rent discs for € 1 (plus € 2 deposit), and they must be returned by 5 pm.
Like a majestic pyramid of rocks, the legendary Serles towers high in the Stubai Alps and the alpine world of Innsbruck. From our “Serles-View” double room, you can enjoy a view of this alluring mountain and will inevitably be put under its spell. The mountain is calling! Via a forest road, you will reach the idyllic Maria Waldrast monastery. In around 20 minutes from the spring at the monastery, several curves will lead you up through a forest flooded with light. The steep path then leads through fields of pine and scree into the Serlesgrube and from here to another cirque.
Past a refreshing spring, the path continues up to the 2,384 m high Serlesjöchl. On the ridge, there is an iron ladder on a boulder to climb. From here, a narrow path leads to the vast summit plateau. After the ca. 5 hour climb to the 2,717 m high Serles, you will be rewarded with a splendid view of the Stubaital and Inntal. On the Serles, which was called the “high altar of Tyrol” by Goethe, you can experience unlimited freedom and become one with the spectacular mountain scenery.
