More than 3000 years ago immense parts of the Tschirgant mountain massif crashed into the valley by blocking the entrance to the Ötztal. Today this wonderful area amidst the densely populated Tirolean Inntal has become atrue nature treasure, almost untouched by men. The wood-covered oasis offers splendid places ideal to take a rest, rich fauna and flora, and many mythenshrouded legends and stories. Two breathtaking loop trails travel straight through this awesome landscape called "Sautner Forchet" known for its exciting cultural spots (Kalkofen area, cavehouse, …). Information panels inform about the region's fauna and geology. Both loop trails are linked, boasting a huge circular trail if you combine them. Please take enough to drink with you especially in the hot summer months.
