All the Ötztal valley's highlights rolled into one
The approx. 180 km long (loop) long-distance hiking route leads from Ötztal-Bahnhof via Oetz, Niederthai, Längenfeld, Sölden, Obergurgl, Zwieselstein, Vent, Gaislach, Granstein, Längenfeld, Umhausen, Sautens, Haiming back to Ötztal-Bahnhof. In 12 stages passionate hikers explore a number of small and larger villages. They roam through orchards and Alpine meadows, follow the roaring Ötztaler Ache mountain brook and climb higher and higher towards awesome panoramic views and the highest parish village in Austria. Such famous peaks as Wildspitze seem only a stone's throw away. In addition to memorable nature exploration, the valley's locals plus varied culinary treats and cultural impressions along the route make the Ötztaler Urweg a very special experience for active holiday makers.
Special tip: Each stage can also be conquered individually. In the villages there are enough parking spaces available or you can easily reach them by public bus.

The origin of life.
