The Ötztaler Urweg Calm and powerful – the Ötztal world of nature
The quiet and untouched sides of the Ötztal: On the primeval path in the Ötztal Nature Park © Ötztal Tourismus
What comes to your mind when you think of Ötztal? Of course, you think of Sölden with its glacier skiing area, the unique 007Elements high up on Gaislachkogl and about the Ötztal bike marathon, which challenges even the most trained athletes to the limit. You also think of the AREA 47 at the entrance to the valley and the AQUA DOME thermal baths in the middle of the valley in Längenfeld and of course also of the chic town Obergurgl and Hochgurgl at the end of the valley.
Like a string of pearls, the new Ötztaler Urweg connects these quiet and powerful sides of the Ötztal on 12 fantastic stages. And thus turns hiking in the Ötztal into a true dream journey. Like, for example, the jade-green Winklerbergsee in the middle of a mystical fairytale forest. The breathtakingly situated mountain village of Farst, enthroned above the legendary Engelswand. The wildly roaring Stuibenfall, with 159m drop height the highest waterfall in Tyrol. Or the mountaineering village of Vent, overlooked by the glacier-staring giants of the Ötztal Alps. This string of pearls could be continued almost indefinitely, so diverse and surprisingly untouched the Ötztal presents itself to you along the Urweg.
The Ötztaler Urweg has all the ingredients to become a real classic for hiking in the Ötztal and even in the whole Alps. All the more so as the original Trail has been made bookable for long-distance hiking, which gives you a maximum of individual freedom with a flexible and comprehensive service. For example, quality-tested hiking accommodations in various categories, a convenient luggage service and the always helpful Trail Hotline in the dedicated Trail Info & Booking Center. You can also choose from carefully arranged packages. Now there are no limits to hiking in the Ötztal anymore! We are sure to see you soon at the Ötztal Urweg!
