GRANSTEIN –> Hochwald –> Aschbach –> Pollestal –> Feuerstein –> Huben –> Duringweg –> LÄNGENFELD
Hochwald is said to be just as quiet and idyllic as Granstein. The small hamlet at a forest clearing not far from Sölden, surrounded by deep green larch trees. Here you should look back and enjoy the awesome view of the village amidst a gigantic mountain scenery - resembling an idyllic picture in a perfect setting. The trail leads to a very special place through dense forests with a fully variety of sounds, scents and colors. The Ötztal Trail of Legends ends here at lovely Alpengasthof am Feuerstein, one of 10 Places of Strength in Längenfeld. "Where the dragon spits flames" is one of many legends displayed along the hiking route.
Scenic Duringweg, another high altitude trail that travels high above the small villages and hamlets, features many more places of strength and exceptional energy - plus many historical farmhouses. Buildings from bygone times show the traditional consciousness of the Ötztal locals. As soon as you reach Teufelskanzel, the next place of strength, you will feel "devilish" good. The panoramic view is really unique, opposite you can see the suspension bridge connecting Brandalm and Burgstein in lofty heights.
