Healthy mountain air

A healthy soul resides in a healthy body. Active holidays mobilise your energy levels far beyond your stay. Among the positive effects of exercise in the crisp high-altitude mountain air is the regeneration of red  blood cells and the improved oxygen levels of the body. Visit the Stubai Glacier and you will feel better!

Closed despite of good weather?

Especially after snowfall, the TOP OF TYROL summit platform may be closed.

As fresh snow is often accompanied by wind, cornices up to 3.5m high can develop on the ridge on which the platform rests, which can only be removed by hand. This clearing work can take from a few hours to a few days. To remove the cornices in the adjacent picture from April 2019, 11 men spent four hours shovelling.

We thank you for your understanding, should the TOP OF TYROL summit platform be closed in the winter, despite of good weather conditions.
