getting to the pitztal by air

Innsbruck airport has by far the shortest transfer time to the Pitz valley, but Munich is not a bad option and Salzburg airport is also easily accessible through the motorway network.

Airport gif Innsbruck Airport

The end of the Pitztal is around ninety minutes' drive from Innsbruck airport. The route along the Inn valley motorway heads due west through to the junction at Imst and then up into the valley via the towns of Arzl, Wenns and Jerzens before the long haul through to the hamlets closer to the ski areas. The road is a small valley road which can sometimes become crowded in high season.

Innsbruck has a wide selection of charter flights which mainly arrive on the weekend, as well as a good choice of scheduled flights including some of the low-cost carriers to the UK and Vienna.

Airport gif Memmingen Airport

Allgäu Airport, the proper name for the airport at Memmingen, acts as an alternative 'Munich Airport' for low-cost carriers and those aiming for destinations to the west of the Bavarian capital. It is not a bad solution for the Pitztal with motorway much of the way down towards the Austrian border near Reutte and then country roads (and the Fern Pass) through to the Inn valley motorway.

Airport gif Friedrichshafen Airport

Friedrichshafen Airport has been a popular option for visitors wanting to head for the west of Austria for some years now, even if it has been overtaken by Memmingen. The route from the airport follows the northern shore of Lake Constance and then crosses onto the Austrian motorway system at Bregenz before following the road all the way through the Arlberg to Imst.

Airport gif Munich Airport

Munich Airport is located around three hours away from the Pitztal. The airport is situated to the north of the city, and there are various options for travelling into Austria. The first - and longest but perhaps easiest - is to use the motorway network which bypasses Munich to the east and then heads down to Rosenheim, where it joins up with the motorway from Salzburg, and the border at Kufstein.

Otherwise drivers can head south through Munich towards Austria. At Garmisch-Partenkirchen there is another choice: either head towards Seefeld and then to Imst via Telfs, or take the Ehrwald direction over the Fernpass to Imst.

train travel

Train gif Imst Railway Station

Imst-Pitztal railway station in the Inn valley is the closest to to the Pitztal and is on the direct line from Innsbruck, Salzburg and Munich. Buses run during the day through to early evening hourly from the railway station on the sixty-minute journey, and taxis are also available.

finding your way around the resort

Hotels are dotted all along the Pitztal, with concentrations of them at the far end near the main ski areas and in the larger communities such as St Leonhard im Pitztal.

But even those hotels in the quiet hamlets along the road have excellent road access to the skiing - either by personal car or with the frequent ski buses.

The maps below display many of the four- and three-star hotels in the Pitz valley. As the valley is so long there are two maps displayed - one for the lower valley and the Hochzeiger ski area and one for the upper valley and the glacier and Rifflsee area. Even so the maps are set initially at quite a low resolution but you can zoom the map in and out by using the controls and switch between satellite and traditional map views.

The hotels listed below are all have an official rating of four or three stars. Those who are looking for something a little more homely or a different type of accommodation might like to use the search box here, which checks availability for all of the resort.
