Botanic Alpine garden and walk along the edge of the forest
Europe's most elevated botanic show garden invites visitors to learn about over 400 different alpine plants first hand. The Zirbenweg trail follows a wide, steep path to the Boscheben chalet, which is somewhat hidden away.

Throughout the entire walk, you can look down at the Inn valley and enjoy the breathtaking view of the Karwendel mountain chain oppoite. Near Tulfein Alm, there is the Glungezerbahn mountain station. You can take the Glungezerbahn to Tulfes.
