A transfer will pick you up and take you 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.
Safety informationWatch 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.
