A transfer Innsbruck Pitztaler Glacier takes you to a subject of superstitious fear of the ancient local population.
Flooding from the glacier ice lake caused repeatedly major damage to the villages surrounding the Glacier. During hundreds of years people tried to appease the forces of nature resident inside the glacier with annual processions and a chapel that was built within the eternal ice.
Today this water flowing through pipes feeds the Gepatsch reservoir.
Pitztal Glacier is called „the roof of Tyrol“ and combines superlatives. The glacier area is dominated by the 3768 meter high Wildspitze and is with 10 km² the second largest in Austria. Overall, the glacier stretches between an altitude of 1640 m up to 3440 m. From there rises the River „Pitze“ which gives the valley its name.
Since 2012, the Pitztal glacier, which is in itself a unique nature experience, offers another highlight: Austria’s highest Cafe: The Cafe 3440. To get there you need to take the Pitztal Glacier Express which takes you within 8 minutes to the central station and from there you continue with the Wildspitz cable car to the summit. At the top on 3440 meters above see level an overwhelming and breathtaking panorama opens up. Experience best coffee enjoyment and the views on the highest mountain in northern Tyrol, the Wildspitze.
Taking time for a 3 minute climb over a steel staircase to the observation deck the 50 peaks of the Pitztal Mountain range appear on the horizon. The panorama continues to the „Zugspitze“ in Germany, the Kaunertaler, Stubai and Ötztal glacier and to the far in the south located Italian Alps.
Standing up there with a blue sky above you and the harsh wind of the mountains in your face is an unforgettable experience to each visitor: Pure nature, snow and eternal ice on a 360° panorama.
With the opening of the Pitztal glacier lift in 1983 the ski area started to become widely known and tourism became the main source of income for the Population of the Pitztal. One of the main attractions is the Rifflsee a glacier lake situated at 2200 meters. This is a very popular destination especially in summer for walkers. However most tourists come during winter season.
Best glacier ski resort
A skiing holiday within the relatively small ski resort is an experience for itself. Compared to the major ski resorts in Tyrol it is rather less frequented, manageable, quiet and friendly. Hotels are almost all family run giving tourists the opportunity to get contact with the rustic – friendly, well-focused population of Tyrol.
