Hike to the picturesque location of the Ramolhaus Hut, soak in the breath-taking views of the glacier.
Today's walk concludes with the most challenging section of the Ötztaler Urweg, taking you deep into the mountains. From Obergurgl, walk towards the Küppelealm on well-maintained paths. From there, you’ll hike further into the valley towards the rocky outcrop on which Ramolhaus is situated and where you’ll be rewarded with breath-taking views over the glaciers.
The Ramolhaus terrace offers a unique view of the surrounding area.
In rainy weather, the narrow trails can be muddy and slippery. Make sure to wear closed and sturdy footwear with good grip.
You must be confident walking at heights and sure-footed. Keep a close eye on the weather forecast and don’t go into the mountains if a storm is predicted.
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.
In your information pack, you’ll find a detailed list of all the required hiking gear, including some good hiking boots, appropriate clothing, a rain jacket and a backpack.
