Bring antiquity back into our modern age.
Ancient natural living… Let’s get back to our roots!
Get the Ötzi experience! See where the iceman was found, visit an outdoor museum about ancient life, and explore quaint Umhausen in the breath-taking Austrian Alps.
Ötztal: where Europe’s oldest natural mummy was found. Dubbed Ötzi, this astonishing find was stumbled upon by hiking tourists near Similaun mountain in 1991. He was preserved by the ice and over 5,000 years old! But how did he live? What did life look like for prehistoric Europeans? Umhausen, Tyrol, is the ideal place to ponder these questions. This rural mountain village features an interactive archaeological park with a special outdoor setting. Do you want to truly explore the daily life of Europe’s ancestors? In Ötzi Village, learn the ancient skills of archery, making fire with stones, and even baking bread from archaic recipes. This isn’t like other museums! Go back in time and learn through this important heritage. A visit to the outdoor museum is perfect for young, old, families and everyone in between! Top off this cultural experience by making your way to our Austrian Alps hotel, Post Vent, for lunch in a traditional Tyrolean stube. Enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the majestic beauty and imagine those ancient people living on the land before your eyes.
