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.

From the car park "Mure" in Umhausen you hike through the meadows in the direction of Farst, at the junction to Östen you continue on the path straight to the chapel "Maria Schnee". From there through the hamlet of Lehn / Platzl, and under the "Engelswand" over to Tumpen. Maria Schnee is a baroque building with a great rococo decoration. On 5th August snow should have fallen there. The population interpreted this as a sign of a church building. For its 200th anniversary, Maria Schnee has been extensively renovated and is now a popular pilgrimage and coveted wedding church.

 

Author’s recommendation

Surrounded by two poplars, the solitary pilgrimage church "Maria Schnee" is visible from afar. It was built around 1796 in baroque style.
