Walkers had to remain patient because of the snowy winter but now the Zirbenweg high above Innsbruck and Hall in Tirol is open for hikers.

Just in time for the beginning of the alpine rose blooms on the panorama trail at 2000 meters above sea level.

The Zirbenweg, which is one of the classics among the Tyrolean hiking trails is surrounded by a sea of alpine rose blooms during the flowering season.

It also offers magnificent deep views into the Inn valley and panoramas of around 400 alpine peaks, including the mighty Karwendel mountains on the other side of the valley.

What makes this hiking route so special, however, is its namesake, the stone pine or Zirbe. The Panoramaweg leads through one of the largest and oldest stone pine stands in Europe.

The oldest stone pine in the “Ampasser Kessel” is more than 750 years old. This makes it the oldest tree in Tyrol.

The Zirbenweg can easily be reached via the Glungezerbahn and Patscherkofelbahn. The circuit can be completed by public bus.
