Sölden as well as Hochsölden, Zwieselstein and Vent attract hiking enthusiasts with well-marked and excellently maintained hiking trails. Between the valley floor and snow-topped peaks, mountain lovers can let off steam until the soles of their feet burn: Family-friendly Alpine inns and huts can be explored along the scenic Almzeit theme hiking trail, sporty ascents up to more than 3000 meters altitude or multi-day hikes are a must. Shortcuts are allowed thanks to the mountain lifts which open up high Alpine nature jewels and rest stops for both families and connoisseurs. With a comfy gondola ride also experienced hikers can spare energy for longer tours.
The following list shows the complete hiking offer in Sölden at a glance. Find out more about suitable tours incl. directions, walking time, getting there and up-to-date details.
Kühtrainschlucht Trail is very challenging in terms of biking techniques. Therefore it is a black trail. You can ride it in both directions. It connects Zwieselstein and Sölden (hamlet of Moos). Tree roots and steps line the entire route.
In long past times the ravine of Kühtrainschlucht was the only connection between Sölden and Zwieselstein. Today the route is used by active sportsmen of all ages, especially by avid mountain bikers. The elevation profile may not reveal everything: right at the start you'll find a truly challenging and steeply ascending section. A couple of steps and narrow railings require both stamina and courage. Two exhausting ascents await you at the end before a flowing downhill passage takes you to the village.
The trail is rideable in both directions. If you want to avoid the federal road you can also return on the same route or take the public bus running between Sölden and Zwieselstein.
