Mystic, mighty and mossy
Nature has always been in full bloom here thanks to the ancient water channels and irrigation ditches – called „Waal“ in Tirol – which drained off water from mountain brooks and Alpine lakes towards the valley‘s fields and meadows. Additionally, adjacent „Waalwege“ trails were built in order to maintain and repair these ditches. Right at the heart of the Ötztal Nature Park you find the splendid Waalweg Mooserstegle, reminding of our ancestors who knew very well how to protect nature and how to take advantage of the natural elements: murmuring brooks meander through precipitous rock walls, forests and rockslide areas. Crossing Windach Ache brook, you feel, hear and experience the power of the elements with all senses.
