Snowshoe hiking & winter walking

Step by step towards a holistic experience

The hiking paradise of Sölden also has a marvelous winter season: 49.5 km of cleared, signposted winter hiking trails take walkers straight through snow-covered forests, white meadows and along Ötztaler Ache mountain brook. Adventure-seeking vacationers grab their snowshoes and listen to the crunching snow under their feet while lively Sölden disappears in the background. Trudging  through the untouched white either on your own or accompanied by a local guide you will take new insights on the way to rustic mountain huts.

This walk starts right at the Bischoffsplatz car park. The climbing trail to the right of the Kneipphäusl snack station leads directly into Tauferberg forest. Once on top, a level trail forks off: the Waalweg Trail - a former irrigation ditch still flanked by a small brooklet - was used for watering the meadows in long past times. Follow the route until you get to the cart trail that leads back to the starting point.

Turn-by-turn directions

The walk starts at Bischoffsplatz. To the right of the Kneipphäusl recreation station, the path leads up to the Tauferberg forest. At the top, a flat path branches off on the left - you are at Waalweg. Directly next to the flat high-way trail runs a brook, which used to serve the irrigation of the fields. Also one or the other waterwheel can be found here. Follow the path until you return to the normal path that leads back to the starting point.
