Where freedom reigns:
authentic mountaineering around Vent
Why is Vent so popular with alpinists from all over the world? Well, there are several reasons. Like the wild and unspoilt nature left in its natural state. The numerous 3,000m peaks and icy giants that majestically surround our mountaineering village. And last but not least, the authentic Vent charm that we’ve retained over the centuries. Real, pristine mountain air still flows through Vent. The wonder of traditional alpinism and love for the mountains are still in every fibre here.
Safe in the mountains – accompanied by our family mountain guides
You could say that we were born into our passion for the Alpine world, so it’s no surprise that our family boasts three qualified mountain and ski guides: With our son Leo and Caroline’s brothers Thomas and Markus, there’s a whole lot of mountaineering expertise in our family. These three not only know the Ötztal mountains like the back of their hands, but are also top informed when it comes to behaviour, safety, and equipment on the mountain. Upon request, they’ll be happy to advise you on planning your tours, take care of the organisation for you including selecting hiking trails and making hut reservations, and, if you wish, accompany you on your high-Alpine hikes, mountain tours, and ski tours around Vent.
Mountain adventures for everyone wanting to reach the highest heights
In the Ötztal mountains, you’ll find one 3,000m peak after another that beckon mountain fans to enjoy high-Alpine tours, challenging summit ascents, and spectacular glacier hikes. For example, there’s Ötzi’s discovery site, Mt Similaun (3,606m), and Mt Fineilspitze (3,514m). These can all be reached from Similaun mountain hut, which is run by our family. Another must for any alpinist’s tour book is 3,774m-high Mt Wildspitze: You can reach Austria’s second-highest mountain in seven hours from our hotel in Vent. Equally rewarding: the summit tour up Mt Wildes Mannle (3,023m).
