The Stubai valley, its upper extremity apposed to the heart of the Oetztal, reaches Innsbruck from the southwest. Its highest peak is the Zückerhütl (11,520 feet), and the group is rich in summits above 3000 meters. There are fine huts, of which the Franz Senn is the largest maintained by the Austrian Alpine Club. Railway from Innsbruck to Fulpmes brings one to the center of an attractive climbing area, with passes at the end of the valley, leading to the Oetztal. This book is a modern pictorial guide, with preliminary trilingual text.
