The Silent Part of Sölden

In close touch with the mountains

Well maintained hiking trails, clear views ahead and nothing in the ear, which doesn't belong here: The hiking area in the east of Sölden satisfies the yearning for authentic mountain experiences. Without mountain lifts and cable cars hikers can explore unique Pastureland Areas of the Almzeit theme trail. Some stop-off destinations are also easily accessible by hut taxi which can also be used to reach a higher starting point for long tours. Every time a moment of complete happiness: after an overnight stay at the hut you can witness the sun rising above Ötztal.

Ideal for day tours or loop hikes

Sölden's less popular part has its origins in the center of the village and stretches from mossy forests to lush Alpine pastures up to 3000 meters above sea level. Right at the entrance to rugged Windachtal side valley, superb Waalweg Mooserstegle invites you to explore nature in a playful way and watch it carefully. Pristine Windachtal extends east towards the Stubai Alps, countless footpaths and trails lead further to the South Tyrolean border and the rear Passeiertal. Families and ambitious hikers can choose from a huge selection of magnificent tours that require a bit of hiking experience and caution but can be made also without a mountain guide. Culinary treats and refreshments are served in many refuge huts run by the Alpine Club or in privately owned Alpine huts, some offer overnight accommodation - either in classic dormitories or in comfortable beds.


Huge choice of refreshment stops

Splendid Brunnenberg Alm at 1973 m below the peak of Brunnenkogel is the oldest Alpine hut in Tirol. With its original rustic charm, a children's playground and a bowling alley made of wood, it is extremely popular with families and kids. A youngster, however, seems the newly built (2007) Brunnenkogelhaus located at a higher altitude. Despite its exposed panoramic location at 2738 m, this comfortable retreat is quite easy to reach for hikers. And also Austria's third highest hut towers high above the valley in Sölden's Silent Part: Hochstubaihütte at 3174 m makes a very popular starting point for Alpine crossings and peak conquests. It's the undisputed highlight of the multi-day hike from hut to hut.

More rewarding hiking destinations in Sölden's Silent Part are Kleblealm and Stallwies Alm, Lochlealm and Fiegl’s Hütte in Windachtal, as well as Hildesheimer Hütte (2899 m) located a bit higher.
