Description

The route to 50 impressive summits around Villgratental is now signposted. Creating a heart,

the 50 impressive summits have lovingly connected the secluded Villgratental since time immemorial.

This can only really be seen from a bird’s eye view. So nobody gets lost, the legendary 6-

Day route, which has up to now been regarded as an insider tip among local people, is now signposted throughout.

For ‘all and sundry’, so to speak. That’s what East Tirol people say about the easy variant, which saves you having to do a few summits and in the evenings always leads you to a comfortable overnight stay option in the valley. The hard tour which has 5500 metres altitude alone to tackle in the climb,

covers some 100 kilometres, and has two Alpine inns and three nights in a bivy still remains the territory of the map-readers among you.

The Villgrater mountains connect the two mountaineering villages of Außer- and Innervillgraten in one big heart shape.

Although it has always been there, the Villgrater people only discovered their ‘heart in the 1980s. ‘The route was first tackled then – many people celebrated and did this ridge hike together’, recalls Ossi Fürhapter from the local tourist office. ‘And we are now proud of the fact that we can now invite our guests to enjoy this very special experience.’ Let the uniqueness of the secluded Villgratental take effect on you, one which will last for a long time to come.
