Winter Hiking
Routes

White, whiter, whitest is everything you will see…

Really big eyes for all winter hikers in the rear Ötztal: the pace is excellent to admire the unspoilt beauty of the Alpine mountains and landscapes. 12 km of cleared, signposted winter walking trails lead through snow-covered stone pine forests, white meadows and along the frozen Gurgler Ache brook. Take an even deeper insight into marvelous backcountry areas on guided snowshoeing adventures.

This varied and easy alpine tour starts at the Sennhof car park in Niederthai, the sun terrace of the Ötztal at an altitude of 1.550 m. Walk past the hamlets of Ennebach and Überfeld to the hamlet of Lehen (football field). Follow the broad forest trail to the left. At the beginning the path to Mauslesattel is quite steep and demanding but later the route has almost no change in elevation or even slightly descending sections. Hiking through dense woods and lush green alpine pastures you reach the snack station Wiesle.

In the snack station Wiesle, the excursion destination, mainly products of local farmers are served. In addition to a sun terrace for energy tanks, the little ones also get their money's worth on a children's playground. Alternatively, the car park near the football field in the hamlet Lehen is also a starting point.
