Planned by Ötztal
Varied landscape, impressive mountain worlds and gentle alpine pastures: in all its diversity, the Ötztal invites you to discover its culture, its culinary art and, above all, the unique nature. On the twelve-day Ötztal Urweg all three priorities will be linked. You wander from village to village and again and again you meet the Ötztaler Ache, which so decisively shaped the Ötztal.On the twelve daily stages, it goes again and again from the broad valley up to idyllic mountain meadows and promising high altitude. The hike is mostly on good roads, only in the south, it is about mountain trails in close contact with the three thousand meter Ötztal.All daily stages are classified as 'Moderate Difficulties'. You need good condition, surefootedness as well as normal hiking equipment and solid mountaineering boots to master the tour.Stage 1: From Ötztal-Bahnhof to Oetz3.5 hours - 10.3 kilometersStage 2: From Oetz to the hiking village Niederthai6.5 hours - 17.2 kilometersStage 3: From Niederthai to the hiking village Gries5.5 hours - 15.8 kilometersStage 4: From Gries to Sölden7 hours - 20.6 kilometersStage 5: From Sölden to Obergurgl5 hours - 14.5 kilometersStage 6: From Obergurgl to the mountaineering village Vent6.5 hours - 15 kilometersStage 7: From Vent to Zwieselstein7.5 hours - 19.5 kilometersStage 8: From Zwieselstein to Granstein6 hours - 17.6 kilometersStage 9: From Granstein to Längenfeld5.5 hours - 14 kilometersStage 10: From Längenfeld to Umhausen5 hours - 14.5 kilometersStage 11: From Umhausen to Sautens6 hours - 17.1 kilometersStage 12: From Sautens to the Ötztal train station5 hours - 19.1 kilometers
