The Valley's Bus Lines


Explore Tirol's longest side valley by bus. Thanks to a huge number of bus stops spread all over the region, you can easily reach the highlights in the Ötztal by public bus. In winter, skibus shuttles take you effortlessly to the mountain gondola stations while summer guests take advantage of varied public bus lines and hut taxi services for a great start into a memorable hiking vacation.

By the way: Bikers are welcome to use the valley's bus lines. Some of the buses provide a special trailer for bikes. Those bus lines are marked in the bus schedule with "RB". Bicycle transport is free of charge. Public Bus Lines offering Bicycle Trailers are available throughout Ötztal! Advance booking is recommended if you are a bigger group. More details

Free parking in Oetz

There are in normal circumstances enough car parking spaces available at the base station of the Acherkogel lift as well as at the Ochsengarten lift. If you don't want to use your own car and look for a car parking space and then wander around with ski, poles and the uncomfortable ski boots, then we would recommend using our free ski bus.
