Hike through diverse landscapes on the Ötztal UrWeg (ancient trail) route to Sölden.
From Längenfeld you’ll hike uphill to the beautifully located Brandalm and then follow a panoramic path high above the Ötztal valley to Burgstein. Behind Burgsteif, a short, demanding climb to the Jagdthütte awaits you with beautiful views over the valley. The descent will then lead you back to the Ötztal valley floor. Walk parallel to the to the main road for a while, and then through the hamlets Winkle, Aschbach and Höfle to Sölden.
Today you may be walking past a few different areas where cows graze. Although generally very docile and used to walkers, keep your distance and never turn your back on a cow that is behaving strangely or aggressive. Be particularly vigilant around cows with calves.
Always allow enough time for your hiking tour. The specified walking times only refer to actual time spent walking. Breaks for photos and a rest need to be added to the specified times.
Make sure you find out about current weather conditions and keep an eye on weather changes. Thunderstorms can gather very quickly in the Alps.
Do not leave the designated hiking trails!
Always wear good walking boots with a robust sole, and take waterproofs with you. Don’t forget to take plenty of water with you (at least two litres per person) and to protect yourself against the sun.
Pick up refreshments at Brand Alm or Hochwald Sncack bar, but please bear in mind that opening hours can vary. Always carry enough food and drink to keep you going for the day!
