Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Planned by Ötztal
This waterway path leads you from Sölden to the Windache valley. At this point, a Waalweg was modeled. These are narrow, wooden canals on which the valley dwellers once directed the water into the valley. The Waalwege in Windachental are equipped with all sorts of barriers, basins and water wheels - a great experience for children. There are also beautiful viewpoints with great views of the mountains of the Ötztal.Your hike starts right in front of the tourist office in Sölden. From here you walk a bit through the city until the trail branches off. Along meadows and farms along the path leads you into the forest and on into Windachental. It goes briskly uphill and soon you will enjoy a magnificent view of the Ötztal.Above the Windache, it is now pretty flat. Soon the waterway path branches off to the right and leads you directly to the Waalweg. Plan a little time here, so that your children can let off steam. On beautiful forest trails, you finally hike downhill again. On the banks of the Ötztaler Ache, you then stroll comfortably back to Sölden.
