The Berlin High Trail is a high alpine hiking tour, walking from hut to hut whilst discovering the original landscapes of the Zillertal Alps.

Trekking along the Berlin High Trail

The Berlin High Trail is a high alpine hiking tour, walking from hut to hut through the heart of the High Alpine Nature Park. A great way to discover the original landscapes of the Zillertal Alps and its majestic peaks including the Hochfeiler (3,509 m), Großer Möseler (3,478 m) and Olperer (3,476 m).


Working in conjunction with Mayrhofen Tourist Board, the Zillertal Alps Nature Park is offering trekking packages again this summer.


The Trekking Package includes:

- from 2 to 7 night stay incl. half board in the mountain huts (sleeping in a dormitory)
- both the Zillertal Mitte and West Alpine Association hiking maps  

- the Natural History Guide "Ginzling - Alpingeschichte kurz und bündig",  

- bus vouchers (to Ginzling, Stillupptal, Tuxertal, Brandberg) or optionally 

Walking the entire Berlin High Trail from the Gamshütte near Finkenberg to the Karl-von-Edel-Hütte in Mayrhofen will necessitate 7 overnight stays.

Due to the high number of requests, we are offering youth prices (ages 15-18). Based on our experience, we do not recommend hiking the Berliner Höhenweg with children.


The book of vouchers can be purchased direct from the office of Hochgebirgs Naturpark Zillertaler Alpen. It is possible to book from the comfort of your home and after payment has been received the documents will either be sent to you by post or deposited for your collection at the Naturpark office. You can also book once you are here in Mayrhofen and pay by cash. We are more than happy to help with making reservations for overnight stays at the moun-tain huts (individual rooms are also available on request for an additional fee). 


The vouchers are valid for an entire season – depending on the weather, from around mid June to the end of September. It is possible to use the book of vouchers in stages spread over a whole season. For various reasons, however, it is NOT possible to carry them over in to the next year. The ideal time to walk the Berlin High Trail is from mid July to mid September.


Please note:
Not turning up for pre-reserved nights in a mountain hut will result in a cancellation fee of up to 100% of the total overnight costs for each mountain hut/lodge!


Walking the Berlin High Trail is suitable for everyone really. You should bring good walking shoes, hiking poles, endurance, stamina and certainly a little bit of hiking experience with you. It’s also beneficial to have a good head for heights – apart from that, no specialist climbing equipment or crampons are required. It is not necessary to carry a GPS device.

Der Weg ist das Ziel - The Journey is the Reward

Markus Kröll fulfilled a childhood dream in August 2012. In just one day he completed the "Berlin High Trail", a famous hiking route through alpine terrain covering 95.4 kilometres and 13,320 metres in altitude difference, in an incredible 23 hours and 45 minutes. ServusTV has filmed the mountains and this race in a very different style - namely, on the run. The film is available from the Tourist Information Offices, for € 15,-- (excludes shipping costs). All proceeds will be donated to benefit the Foundation for Spinal Cord Research  - "Wings of Life"
