Enjoy a shorter less demanding walk to Sölden, this walk also avoids the suspension bridge.
Today you can choose between the shorter alternative hike or follow the other trail which makes for a longer hike.
Catch the bus to Längenfeld or 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.
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.
We recommend wearing hiking boots that are well broken-in, plus a rain jacket and waterproof trousers in wet weather, as well as taking sun cream and a hat on nicer days.
