The fifth stage of the Alpine crossing on the E5 takes us from Braunschweig Hütten to Vent in the Ötztal.

On our path today are Rettenbachferner and Tiefenbachferner, which are the heart of the Ötztal ski areas in the winter season. Very experienced hikers can cross the glaciers in the summer season with the appropriate equipment – however, the safe variant leads around the outside. This results in a stage with a distance of just under 30 km and 1330 metres of ascent.

Servus zusammen, kurz Frage zu Unterkünften in Vent... Wo kann man am besten übernachten, um am nächsten Tag perfekt durchzustarten zur letzten Etappe? Danke und beste Grüße Marcel
