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.

The Brunnenberg is on the silent side of Sölden. You can enjoy the hike , without the traffic of cars . You start the hike at the Gaislachkoglbahn. From there you go  in the direction to the Camping, cross a river and go uphill to Moosalm. From there you are able to enjoy the panoramic view over Sölden. Slightly uphill, it continues on a forest road which leads through sparse forest to Brunnenbergalm. From Brunnenberg you have a clear view tothe opposite ski mountain Gaislachkogl and to Sölden.The hike is ideal for children and maybe you can even watch the wildlife. The Brunnenbergalm is not open in winter, and so we prefers to take a tea and something to eat with you.

Author’s recommendation

On the way home, it is recommended to stop in the quaint Moosalm.

Turn-by-turn directions

You can start the hike directly at the Gaislachkogelbahn. From here you walk on the pavement to Wohlfahrt and cross the bridge to Windau. From here you go then on an asphalt road relatively steep to Platte and to Wildmoos. In the Wildmoos you come to a crossroads, where you keep left, so you get to Moosalm. Immediately after the Moosalm the asphalt road turns into a forest road, which is covered with snow and groomed regularly. A walk leads you up to the climbing garden and subsequently to the feed stand. After a short flat part  it goes again with the help of some curves up to Brunnenberg. For the descent you take the same way, as for the ascent.
