Just to the side of Hotel Hirzer

The Hirzer Panorama Cable Car

The Hirzer Panorama Cable Car passes just to the side of Hotel Hirzer and our hotel owner gladly accompanies guests for a walk in the mountains with a delicious snack along the way. We also organise guided walks with a qualified, experienced guide for hotel guests from June to October as well as a once weekly walk through the wonderful nature of the nearby walking area Hirzer. Really thrilling – the Hirzer Panoramic Cable Car takes you up to over 2,000 metres in a couple of minutes.

The fascinating world of the mountains

Walks in the Passiria valley

Backpack ready and … off you go for an easy stroll or more athletic trek along safe, well-marked paths through the flower-covered valley pastures – past bubbling brooks, fast-flowing mountain streams, idyllic Alpine lakes … and then a stop at a mountain farmstead for a delicious snack and something to drink. This is what holidays are made of! A relaxing walk along the Waalwege, shady little paths which meander along the farmers’ water irrigation channels, and through the perfumed apple orchards or a hike up into the fascinating world of the Tessa Natural Park with its mountain rhododendrons and Alpine flowers in bloom.
Rudi, the hotel owner, is more than happy to accompany guests and show them the splendid natural beauty of this very special part of the country.
