Munic - Venice Long distance hiking trail

Dream Path through the alps

From the Bavarian capital of Munich all the way across the Alps to the world-famous lagoon city of Venice - the Venice Dream Path is an unforgettable journey for long-distance hikers. It takes only four weeks to walk from the eastern Alps to the Adriatic coastline. Six stages of the long-distance trail lead through the Tirolean region of Hall-Wattens, taking hikers from the Karwendel Mountains through the Inn Valley and the Wattental Valley, over the Glungezer mountain to the Lizumer Hütte hut and on to the highest point of the tour, a ridge known as the Friesenbergscharte, before stopping at the Dominikus Hütte hut and Schlegeis reservoir and then crossing the Italian border. Along the way, hikers traverse some of the most beautiful sections of the entire trail, whilst enjoying dream-like views of the Tirol’s alpine mountainscape. Rustic mountain huts and Alpine Association refuges along the route offer ideal opportunities to take a break and make overnight stays.

One of the finest parts of this classic Alpine route runs through the Hall-Wattens region from the Karwendel (Hallerangerhaus) across the Inn valley and on into the Wattens valley or via the Glungezer to the Lizumer mountain hut.
Start from the Hallerangerhaus and cross the Lafatscherjoch and the Issjöchl as far as what are known as the Herrenhäuser, the old administrative buildings for Hall's salt-mine. From here the path runs through the Hall valley. You may well be tempted to stop off for a drink or something to eat in the St Magdalena Alpengasthof. Take the old "Fluchtsteig" (or miners' "escape route" trail for when the snow was too deep) and enter the Hall valley.

Once you arrive at the beginning of the valley you can choose between the Alpine Classic Route I via Absam – Hall – Tulfes – the Glungezer mountain hut - Rosenjoch - Naviser Jöchl - Lizumer mountain hut or you can take the simpler and less demanding Route II via Gnadenwald - Fritzens - Wattens - Wattener Lizum – Lizumer mountain hut.
