Starting from the village centre of Thaur, the trail continues via the Romedius Church to the Thaurer Alm. From there, either via the Kaisersäule or through the Törl Schlung up to the Thaurer Zunterkopf.

Author’s recommendation

Those who have not yet had enough of the Thaurer Zunterkopf can take the descent via Haller Zunterkopf or even further to the Hochmahdkopf. Here, however, you need surefootedness in places, and there are also 2 rope safety devices along the way.

Thaur

Turn-by-turn directions

The hike starts in Thaur. Follow the crossroads to the little Romedius church and you will reach a nice vantage point above the village of Thaur. Continue via the castle ruins to the alpine path to the Thaurer Alm. Here you have the option of following the forest road or taking the Haselbergsteig trail straight away. This leads stubbornly steeply upwards for about 3/4 of an hour. The last few metres take you back onto the alpine path, which you have to follow for another 10m to the Thaurer Alm.

Here the trail continues above the Thaurer Klamm gorge in the direction of the Törl Schlung gorge. Now you can choose the ascent over the Törl Schlung and then, having reached the top, continue to the right to the Zunterkopf. Or you can turn right at the beginning of the gorge and follow the path in the direction of the Kaisersäule. Today we choose the path over the Kaisersäule, which we reach in about 30 minutes. Behind the Kaisersäule, continue until you reach a prayer mat and follow the trail up the mountain ridge. After another 20 minutes you reach the mountain ridge of the Thaurer Zunterkopf, which is overgrown with mountain pines. The view is tremendous, despite the many higher mountains behind. Bettelwurf, Lafatscherjoch, Wildangerspitze, Lattenspitze, Wilde Bande Steig...to name but a few. On the other side, the view sweeps down into the Inn Valley to the Stubai Glacier and the Zillertal Alps. A true panoramic mountain. 

Return the first few metres through the mountain pine zone, then turn right at an iron bar onto a marked path. This leads to the Törl, where you can once again enjoy a deep view of the Halltal. From here there are many descent options. However, there are only 2 ways back to the starting point. Either directly through the Törl gorge to the Thaurer Alm or via the Hobacher Steig with a short return path to the Thaurer Alm. Either way, a stop for refreshments is now due! Then it's a leisurely walk along the forest path back to the starting point!
