Today you can choose between the shorter alternative hike or follow the other trail which makes for a longer hike. 

Catch the bus to  Huben (1 hour, € 8,50). Follow alpine paths, forest roads and small side streets as the Ötztal Urweg snakes its way through the hamlets of bustling Ötztal. With beautiful views over the Ötztal mountains, you finish your hike in Sölden.
