A hotel near Sölden, not far from the site where Ötzi was found
The discovery of the man from the ice
Our hotel near Sölden is not far from the site where Ötzi was found over 25 years ago.
Our hotel near Sölden in Tyrol is a renowned mountaineering hotel and not far from the famous site where Ötzi was found. It was in autumn 1991 when the German mountaineers Erika and Helmut Simon took a hike not far from our hotel near Sölden. It was by pure accident that they discovered something, which should change their lives forever: the oldest mummy of humankind. The couple was walking a bit off-road and their first thought was that they had found an unlucky hiker. Only later it was proven that here, at 3,210 metres, they had found a 5,300-year-old mummy.
Among the first ones, who arrived at the site, was Luis Pirpamer, the passed owner of your hotel near Sölden. Also Markus Pirpamer, the host of the Similaun mountain hut, which belongs to our hotel near Sölden, tried to free the mummy from the snow. Curious to find out how the story continues?
