The hamlet of Farst strikes as almost exceptional. It is referred to as the eyrie of the Ötztal valley. Located high above the legendary Engelswand rock face, visitors who dare to ascend the serpentines that were slammed into the rock, are rewarded with a dreamlike panoramic view and hearty hospitality.
Farst is one of the valley's oldest settlements. Already in the 13th century a Schwaighof farm was founded there.
The Reichalm pasture, which is a 1.5-hour walk from Farst, is an insider's tip for nature lovers.
