We started directly in Innsbruck and drove after the Westbahnhof left the forest high in the direction of Natterer Boden and Natterer See. You just follow the yellow hiking signs always uphill on forest roads, some stony with some roots. If you want to save about an hour, you can also drive directly to Mutters to the valley station of the Mutterer Bergbahn and park there on the paid parking (at Innsbruck / South from the A12 and drive via Natters to Mutters). If you do not want to go back down the same way as a way back, you have to drive back up the hill to the car.
When we arrived at the top of the Natterer Boden, it was a bit flat over the back to the edge of the forest in the direction of Natters. From the edge of the forest you drive on beautiful flower meadows to Natters to village church down. From there follow the yellow one Hiking signs in the direction of Mutters, The path leads from the village up again on a quiet road in the forest and then along meadows to the village road. Follow this road until you reach the town and then the signs for Mutterer mountain railway, From here it goes on a gravel road now 2 hours always steadily uphill to the Mutterer Alm. The way is with red "mountain bike route" signs and the number 510 well signposted. Unfortunately, none of the huts had opened at the top. The Sennalpe is located next to the Mutterer Alm and is open from June, depending on the weather. From here you have as well as on the way uphill, always a great view of the opposite Patscherkofel and Innsbruck and the Inn Valley in the east. Now you can descend on the same way back to mother, or the crossing over the Raitiser Alm (1553 m) to Kreither Alm (1492m) follow. Here expects a wonderful, slightly up and down running panorama path, which is really worthwhile! You always have a great view. The Kreither Alm was already open in mid-May and invites you to stop by. From there it goes on wide forest roads down to the village Kreith, From here follow the road to Mutters. From Mother's we drove back the same way on Natters and the Natterer soil Back to Innsbruck, so we could take the fun downhill through the forest!
Conclusion of the tour
The tour has a steady gradient from mother up to Mutterer Alm, which facilitates a smooth rhythm. On the whole tour you have beautiful views and views of the Nordkette, the Stubaital and the Wipptal all the way to the Italian 3000s. You should see before the tour if one of the huts really opened. Otherwise you have to take a Vesper and enough to drink.
