Today's stage begins leisurely along the Ötztaler Ache. At the small Winkelberger Lake, the path ascends to the rustic Wurzbergalm, where you can take a break. Enjoy the view from the romantically situated village of Köfels on the high plateau before descending to Umhausen. Follow pleasant alpine paths, forest tracks and quiet country roads on the recently established  Ötztal Way.

The route snakes its way through scenic and peaceful hamlets high above the valley. Enjoy fabulous views over the Ötztal mountains, before starting your descent past the Winkelberg Lake into Langenfeld, from where you will catch a bus to Sölden.


If the weather permits bring a picnic to enjoy on the shores of the Winkelberg Lake

Watch the short term local weather forecasts. Avoid high altitude hiking when the weather is bad. There are plenty of trails in the valleys, that allow you to reach a village quickly if bad weather sets in.
