Numerous hiking tours at an altitude of more than 3,000 metres can be embarked on on the Stubai Glacier. Experience breath-taking views of a fascinating mountain world with 109 3,000-metre-peaks.
A hike along the glacier path is suitable for active families with children. It takes approximately 2 hours to get from the Fernau mid-station (2,300 metres) to the Eisgrat mountain station (2,900m).
Even experienced alpinists get their money’s worth, e.g. on the popular tour to the Zuckerhütl (high-alpine tour to the Zuckerhütl, 3,507m).
Important: The facilities of the Stubai Glacier are located in high alpine terrain. Do not underestimate the altitude. Observe the weather conditions on a daily basis. Outdoor clothing adapted to the temperatures and suitable footwear is reqiored.
Start: Fernau mid-station (2,300m)
Destination: Eisgrat mountain station (2,900m)
Walking time: 2 hours
Altitude difference: 600m
Rest stop: Eisgrat restaurant (2,900m) or Dresdner Hütte (2,308m)
On the hiking trail from the Fernau mid-station to the Eisgrat mountain station, the Stubai Glacier presents its most beautiful side. The path leads along the moraine, which bears witness to earlier glacier advances, past the impressive glacier grindings of the Eisjoch Ferner and the ice grotto to the Eisgrat mountain station. 150 years ago, the glacier reached as far as where the mid-station is today. The ice left behind imposing moraine walls at its edge, which are still clearly visible. The Fernau reservoir invites you to spend some time.

The facilities operated by the Stubaier Gletscherbahnen are located in a high-Alpine region. Outside of the station facilities themselves the risks associated with high-Alpine conditions must be expected. The hiking trails in the area are not part of the facilities operated and offered by the Stubaier Gletscherbahnen. The map of the hiking trails shown here is not sufficient for the safe planning of a hike. Before setting out on a hike it is essential to check on the level of difficulty of the terrain, its demands on hikers and the characteristics of the trail. The hiking trails are not maintained by the Stubaier Gletscherbahnen. The Stubaier Gletscherbahnen assume no liability of any kind for accidents sustained on the hiking trails and in Alpine territory outside of the station facilities. In difficult weather conditions (snow, storm, fog etc.) such hiking trails become considerably more demanding and even impassable! Those wishing to go on a hike are advised to consult mountain guide services.
