Lansersee has been a favourite spot in the area for generations. Everyone in the large radius has a formative story to tell about this place:
– Of the first kiss or night swim, of friends and beautiful memories.
The Moorsee is the hidden yet nearby idyll above Innsbruck.
A place of ancient beauty and special favour.
Recover from an exhausting day of sightseeing or treat yourself to a cool down on a hot summer day.
This easy to moderately difficult panoramic trail above Innsbruck and Hall in Tyrol is a classic among Tyrolean pleasure hikes. It offers magnificent deep views into the Inn Valley and views of around 400 Alpine peaks, especially the mighty Karwendel, which lies directly opposite. The special feature of this hiking route, however, is its namesake, the Swiss stone pine: the Panorama Trail leads through one of the largest and oldest Swiss stone pine stands in Europe. The strongest Swiss stone pines here are 250 years old, the oldest Swiss stone pine in the “Ampasser Kessel” even more than 700 years old. As is typical for the timberline, the tree population is light and open. From May onwards, a sea of alpine roses adorns the landscape along the Zirbenweg.

Starting point: Stubaitalbahnhof, Innsbruck.
Line 6 (Innsbruck Mittelgebirgsbahn) was built in 1900 by the city of Innsbruck. The low mountain railway in the south-east of Innsbruck, also called the ‘Igler’ because of its terminus in Igls, was opened in 1900. At that time it was mainly tourism that demanded such a connection. Many Innsbruck residents had built houses on the Paschberg or wanted to continue up the Patscherkofel.
Starting from the terminus of Line 1 Bergisel, the line, often affectionately called the “forest tram”, winds its way through the forests above Innsbruck to the low mountain plateau and on to the Innsbruck district of Igls. Line 6 runs daily between 6:00 and 18:00, between May and October until about 20:00. Departures from Bergisel are every 17th minute, departures from Igls every 48th minute. Get off at the “Lanser See” station and enjoy one of the most beautiful Tyrolean mountain lakes.
Forest trail: From Hungerburg, follow the Rosnerweg in a north-easterly direction until you reach the first fork in the trail. Here turn left and follow the signs to “Arzleralm Weg” until you reach the alpine pasture. Ideal route also with prams. About 30 minutes longer than the direct route. With a pram, it is best to start on the left at the police station above the Nordkettenbahn. From here, a narrow road leads along the mountain bike downhill track for a few metres to the Rosnerweg.
Additional round on the Arzler Alm Panorama Circular Trail: If the ascent to the Arzler Alm was too short, this circular trail is an ideal extension!
The Arzler Alm panoramic circular trail is 4.7km long, walking time approx. 1 hour with wonderful views of the mountain landscapes of the Inn Valley, parts of the Wipp and Stubaital, as well as the sights of the Olympic city of Innsbruck.
It leads from the Arzler Alm in the direction of the Rumer Alm and at the turn-off to the Rumer Alm turn left in a westerly direction to the Höttinger Almweg. From here downhill again to the Arzler Alm.
Way back: Either ascent or a little further in the direction of Höttinger Alm. Then turn left, then immediately left again and somewhat steeper back to the starting point of the Nordkettenbahn.
