Planned by 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 hospice5 hours - 7.5 kilometersStage 14: Through the Kesselwandferner to the Brandenburg House3.5 hours - 5.5 kilometersStage 15: Ascent to the Fluchtkogel and on to the Vernagthütte4.5 hours - 5.5 kilometersStage 16: High above the Rofental to the Breslauer Hütte2 hours - 7 kilometersStage 17: On the Rettenbachferner to the Brunswick hut7.5 hours - 15 kilometers
