Altitude: 820 m a.s.l.Oetz, the center of the front Ötztal, lies at the foot of the 3,008 m high Acherkogel, the northernmost three-thousand meter peak in the Alps. The Ötztaler Ache, which is well suited for water sports, flows through the village, which means that Oetz is often the venue for kayaking championships.The most popular destination in summer is Lake Piburger, which can be reached on a hike from the village. This natural jewel is one of the warmest bathing lakes in Tyrol and is ideal for a boat tour. Those interested in culture also get their money's worth, because in the center of Oetz there are beautifully painted houses from the 16th century, such as the Stecher and Tscholl houses. The Tower Museum is also worth a visit: many images document the history of the region - the museum was awarded the Museum Prize of the State of Tyrol in 2005. If you want to enjoy a view of the mountains, you can stroll to the late Gothic-Baroque parish church above the village.
