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.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Umhausen - Neudorf car park, you can walk comfortably across the wide forest trail to the junction of Fundus Valley (left) and Leierstal (right). Continue on the right and after about 2.5 walking hours you reach the Vordere Leierstalalm (farmed). From there, continue along the road for approx. 700 m, before turning left into the hiking trail. This leads now over some steeper terrain up, one is rewarded with a wonderful prospect. The lake is very worth seeing, right behind the hut.

Public transport

Enjoy a both comfortable and relaxing train ride to the train station in Ötztal Bahnhof. You get off the train in ÖTZTAL Bahnhof where you change to a public bus or local taxi. The current bus schedule can be found at: http://fahrplan.vvt.at
