Guided Hike (Brigitz, Adelshof - Birgitzer Alm - Birgitzköpflhaus - Nockspitze) 

1st Charity Walk 
"Up the Mountains"


The GA foundation supports research on medicinal plants and natural products! Innsbruck and the wonderful mountains! Let us combine activities!


The foundation invites all of you for a spectacular charity walk – great mountains, great view, great plants in the wonderful nature near Innsbruck and a bit of physical activity after the scientific conference!


What happens: Early in the morning the Bus takes us to the starting point (Adelshof). First stop is the Birgitzer Alm, located at 1808 m above sea level (about 1 to 2 h walk) – enjoy a typical Alm (high mountain meadow) and rest.

For those still hungry for more, we go up further (about 1 hour) to the Birgitzköpflhaus (2098 m) – rest and enjoy the great panorama.

For the very sportive participants we can try to get up to the top of Nockspitze (2403 m), an exhausting 1 hours hike. Take a breath-taking photo and enjoy nature and yourself.


Walking back to the starting point (another 3 hours)


When: Thursday, 05. September 2019


For the Charity Walk we ask for a donation of at least 25 € (the foundation is always happy for more!) per person which directly supports the foundation Plants for Health. Bus ticket to the starting point have to be paid by every hiker individually in the bus.

Only for good walkers, which have experience in mountain area; good condition is a prerequisite.

The foundation and organizers will take no liability for risks and losses during the event. We will try our best to get you a great and unforgettable day out.

And one more aspect: the charity hike can only start if the weather is fine. We will communicate this the day before.

We are looking forward to a great event!
