  • Ötztal

    On the fourth part of the route you can expect the most exciting, but also most demanding glacier tours of the entire Ötztal Trek. On almost all tours is a crossing of the column-rich Ötztal glacier and the highlight is certainly the night in the Brandenburg House. In inhospitable heights stands the stone house in the midst of a breathtaking glacier landscape. From here it goes on the Fluchtkogel, with almost 3,500 meters altitude, a unique view awaits you at the top of the summit.With glaciers and icy peaks, this section is only for experienced mountaineers or accompanied by a mountain guide.Stage 13: On Ötzi's tracks to the Hochjoch hospice
    5 hours - 7.5 kilometers
    Stage 14: Through the Kesselwandferner to the Brandenburg House
    3.5 hours - 5.5 kilometers
    Stage 15: Ascent to the Fluchtkogel and on to the Vernagthütte
    4.5 hours - 5.5 kilometers
    Stage 16: High above the Rofental to the Breslauer Hütte
