Walk along Starkenberg's Panorama Trail and discover Castle Starkenberg
Take a local bus to Nassereith (approx. 15 mins) from where you will pick up the Starkenberg Panorama Trail. Ascend to the viewpoint over the Gurgl Valley. Continue to Schloss Starkenberg; a restaurant and brewery.
Enjoy a locally brewed, refreshing beer in the garden before continuing on the final 3km to the Alpine town of Imst. Sitting at 826m above sea-level, this traditionally Austrian town is a delight.
Watch the short term local weather forecasts. Avoid high altitude hiking when the weather is bad. There are plenty of trails in the valleys, that allow you to reach a village quickly if bad weather sets in.
We recommend sturdy waterproof boots with ankle support at all times of the season – steep steps, exposed roots and (if wet) slippery rocks can pose a risk
Salvesenklamm - Creepy witch stories entwine around the mystical Salvesenklamm. If you believe the legend, witches performed their wild dances here some time ago. The today's stage leads over a bridge with wonderful deep view to the Salvesenbach, which rushes far below in the deeply cut gorge to valley.
