Researchers have discovered that the Längenfeld valley basin was under water until about 900 AD and formed a lake. Today the valley floor is covered with unusually fertile soil and almost tangible sources of energy. This immense power created by nature is no coincidence, there are many other similar places in Längenfeld and its surrounding hamlets. A trail network named "Kraftquell Längenfeld" (source of strength) connects all these moments of strength and energy.


One of this outstanding spots is your next stop, nestling between the high Alpine plateaus of Brand and Burgstein where you cross the 200-meter high suspension bridge. An elated moment with splendid panorama views, towering high above the breathtaking valley floor with its lovely hamlets, small villages, the meandering Ötztaler Ache mountain brook and deep green meadows. All these wonderful impressions accompany you to your next destination. Great contrasts can also be found here - ranging from quiet farmhouses and secluded trails to Sölden's lively center and activity hot spots!

Turn-by-turn directions

Von Längenfeld wandert man hinter der Kirche den Forstweg in der sogenannten "Klamm" hinauf nach Brand. Nach ca. 40 min gelangt man zu den idyllischen Berghöfen in Brand. Von dort führt der Weg weiter durch ein dichtes Waldstück, stets den Bergwurzeln entlang. Weiter verläuft der Pfad über eine 200 Meter hohe Hängebrücke, mit einem unglaublichen Panorama auf das gesamte Längenfelder Talbecken und seine Weiler, bis nach Burgstein. Der auf einem Sonnenbalkon liegende Ortsteil Burgstein verwöhnt weiter mit einem weitreichenden Panorama und einer altbäuerlichen Bergidylle. Ab Burgstein steigt man einem Jagdweg hinauf und gelangt an eine Jagdhütte. Weiter wandert man der Bergseite entlang bis zum Abstieg in Serpentinen, kurz vor dem Weiler Winkle. An einem Schotterplatz gelangt man über einen Waldweg nach Winkle und zweigt gegenüber dem dort befindlichen Schotterwerk nach links ab. Dort wandert man hinauf durch den Wald und wieder hinunter vorbei am Campingpatz Winkle bis nach Bruggen. Am Ende von Bruggen nimmt man die Unterführung, um die Bundesstraße zu queren und folgt dem Pfad Tal einwärts nach Aschbach. Durch eine Unterführung gelangt man auf die andere Straßenseite und folgt der Beschilderung Richtung Sölden. Oberhalb der Häuser wandert man am Weg entlang der Bergseite. Immer weiter diesem Weg folgend, überwandert man schlussendlich die großen Weiler Söldens, Kaisers, Schmiedhof, Rechenau und weiter bis zum Zentrum der Gemeinde Sölden.
