Hiking in the footsteps of the iceman
The discovery site: impressive and unique
You always wanted to visit the Ötzi discovery site? Take part in a hike and learn more about the glacier mummy in the Ötztal!
We at the hotel in the Austrian Alps are happy to accompany you to the site where Ötzi was discovered. It is a truly unique destination for those interested in history and hiking. If you want to admire Ötzi from up close, you can do so during a visit to the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano/Bozen. Ötzi is regarded as a sensational discovery, which provided historical research with extremely valuable information about the way of life in the Copper Stone Age. Together with the glacier mummy, a stone dagger, a copper axe, and an arrow and bow were found. The hike from Vent to the Ötzi discovery site takes you past our family run Similaun hut. After a well-deserved break, we continue in northwest direction to the discovery site, where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the north flank of the Fineilspitze and the Similaun. Did we spark your interest? Then visit our Hotel in Vent and follow the traces of history in the Ötztal Alps!
