The Berliner Hohenweg, or as it is often referred to in English –The Berlin High Trail, is one of the most well-known and alluring trails in Austria. The 50 mile (80 km) trek is known to Germans as the Berliner Höhenweg and to Brits as the Zillertal Rucksack Route. The entire tour takes eight. Demanding long-distance trails such as the Berlin high altitude trail, the Peter Habeler Runde and the Alpine traverse invite visitors to enjoy multi-day hikes.
