Exploring the Ötztal Nature Park

From leisurely walks to challenging treks...

... every trail in Ötztal is unique

Mountain tours in Ötztal, in the heart of the nature park of the same name, offer an untouched outdoor experience.

We know from experience that mountaineers are both dreamers and adventurers. We know you love the challenge of conquering the forces of nature and experiencing the reward at the summit. In Ötztal, you will find exactly what your heart desires: a wide variety of paths and trails winding through a wild and unspoilt landscape.

After a strenuous climb, you will be rewarded with breathtaking views that elevate the spirit, encircled by majestic peaks reaching up to three thousand metres above sea level. Such moments epitomise the essence of freedom and vitality. Such moments are what make your holiday in Ötztal so special.

From easy hiking trails (marked blue) to moderately difficult mountain trails (marked red) to difficult mountain trails (marked black), the region offers you the perfect tour in Ötztal.

Moreover, Ötztal forms part of the nature park that shares its name. It is home to charming mountain villages such as Vent, Obergurgl, Niederthai, and Gries, which are ideal starting points for exploring the region’s rich array of flora and fauna. The Nature Park Centre is situated in Längenfeld, and one of the six info points can be found near our hotel in Vent. Here, you can learn about the area’s transhumance tradition and settlement history, setting you up for your adventure.

But wait – one more thing! Don’t forget that walking time, difficulty level, elevation gain, and the weather forecast are all crucial details for a worry-free day in the mountains. From Kreuzspitze to Zwölferköpfl, from Wilder Mann to Rosskopf – the tours are as diverse as the names of the peaks themselves. It can be tough to choose among them, but the rewards are certain. Whether it’s signing the summit book, enjoying a “summit schnapps”, or just immersing yourself in the breathtaking landscape, every moment is to be cherished.
