Itinerary Overview

Highline 179
In the heart of Reutte you will find the "Longest Tibet-style footbridge" with a height of 114 m and a 360 Panorama. Next to it, you will find the Castle Ehrenberg with the Fort Claudia. Fort Claudia was build in 1645 and was taken over by the Swedes and the Bavarians back in the days. There is still a Knight Museum and you can hike all the way up. So if you are not afraid of heights, go and check it out!!


Fondue Evenings high up at 2,962m
A mountain so-called Zugspitze brings 100 and 100 of peoples every year on it's peak. For an outstanding view and gondola ride. 
There are often special events like concerts, an "Oktoberfest" and much more. Also, the Fondue Evening is very famous. With musical entertainment you will spent you evening eating on of the best Fondues, Salat and Dessert. There are tickets available where even the gondola ride is included. You should definitely have a look!


A House at its head
Approximately 1,5 hours away from Innsbruck you will find a house on its head. Literally. It's a very nice Attraction for families or also friends or visitors. You will feel very dizzy at first and at the end, but it's actually very funny and feels more like being tipsy :-P You can make the nicest pictures and explore everything upside down.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    nothing, everything was like planned

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Like the traffic, the weather can change pretty quickly as well.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Plan enough time for everything. The traffic can get pretty bad in only a few seconds, since there is only one way to go. Also, a lot of people from Germany need to take this road as well.

  • Transportation Tips?

    There is also a Bus and a Train going from Reutte to Ehrwald but further to Terfens you would probably have to take a car anyway.
