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 journey is its own reward – here it is true! Behind every corner walkers can discover a new mystic figure dating back to Ötztal‘s long history in story-telling. The trail features 14 stations with life-sized fabled figures that are made from scrap metal by Annemarie and Günther Fahrner. Information panels display more detailed information on the single characters from old Ötztal tales – like “Wildes Mandl“, the mystic local, or “Engelswand“ rock face. The ascent seems easier than expected as there are new highlights in a row: the headless horseman, the 5.5-meter tall dragon or the mystic little guy accompany hikers to the scenic wedding chapel made of wood and glass.

Picture-book natural landscapes go hand in hand with the stylish ambiance of Alpengasthof am Feuerstein. The private wine cellar – interspersed with huge rocks – is in perfect harmony with romantic candles creating a very special kind of magic.

Please note: During summer the Trail of Legends is not illuminated!
