The E5 runs over a total distance of 600 km from Lake Constance to the Adriatic Sea. The most famous part leads from Oberstdorf to Meran through the impressive mountains of Tyrol almost always on high alpine trails.
Via Claudia Augusta
The Via Claudia Augusta leads in the footsteps of the ancient Romans from Donauwörth to Ostiglia. Conquering this historic route on your own is a challenge for the body - but it is worth discovering the evidence of the historical lifeline.
Tyrolean Castle Trail
5 castles in the region - Landeck Castle, Biedenegg Castle, Wiesberg Castle, Schrofenstein Castle and the Kronburg - serve as the central cornerstones.
The Starkenberger Panoramaweg is divided into 7 sections. Each of these sections is something very special in itself. Again and again, the paths follow historic streets such as the Via Claudia Augusta, the Salt Road or the Way of St. James.
The Way of St. James runs across Austria to Tyrol. The holiday region TirolWest offers pilgrimage paths as well as a place of pilgrimage directly on the Way of St. James. On the world's most important Christian pilgrimage route, believers from all over Europe visit the tomb of St. James in Santiago de Compostela in northeastern Galicia.
Across the whole of Tyrol, hikers can discover the "land in the mountains" on the wings of the eagle amidst a wonderful landscape. The eagle has been a historic animal in Tyrol for centuries and stands for freedom and independence.
This magnificent high-altitude trail leads in elegant lines around and partly over the numerous peaks of the mountain range. The Lechtal Alps represent the longest closed mountain ridge in the Northern Limestone Alps. Their highest point, the 3,036 m high Parseierspitze, above Grins, is the only 3,000-meter peak that is also the highest point.
Discovering the Alps on foot - in the spirit of preserving nature, culture and living space. The yellow trail, which connects three countries over 40 stages, also leads through the TirolWest region. At 0 meters above sea level in Trieste, the route has its starting point and when crossing the Alps it leads up to 3,000 m above sea level.
The Starkenberger Panoramaweg is divided into 7 sections. Each of these sections is something very special in itself. Time and again, the paths follow historic streets such as the Via Claudia Augusta, the Salt Road or the Jakob trail. A total of 7 Sees and numerous streams make this path a refreshing and very varied experience. And of course, castles, fortresses, ruins and all sorts of historic walls line the course of the journey, making history literally tangible.
In 6 days over the Alps. From Obersdorf to Merano - probably one of the biggest adventures in the Tyrolean mountains.
