Hochwand (2,719 m) is a mountain in the Mieming Range in Tyrol, Austria.

It is most famous for its impressive north face, which tumbles for 1,300 m down into the Gaistal valley below. The normal route to the summit is from the south, where the slopes are less steep. It is a very difficult climb from all sides and much scrambling is required to reach the summit. Climbs usually begin at the village of Wildermieming.
