Photographer's Note

This is a view up the beautiful Stubai Valley near Innsbruck, from the slopes of Hoher Burgstall mountain in the Kalkkogel range. On the left is Habicht (3277 m), and the highest peak in the right background, surrounded by glaciers, is the Zuckerhutl (3507 m) which is the highest peak in the Stubai Alps.

To get here you can catch a tram from Innsbruck to the town of Fulpmes, and then a cable car from Fulpmes to a high point in the Kalkkogel, and from there you can walk the many trails that run around the mountains. I recommend the tram trip, but you won't find any information about it on the Innsbruck tourist websites. I had to dig deep into the internet to find a timetable for it. The tram leaves from the main railway station in Innsbruck, and takes one hour to get to Fulpmes, passing by fields and forests and villages with mountain views. It was a highlight of our stay in Innsbruck.
