Hiking & Mountaineering
Passing through: Long-distance & Cross-border hiking

On the approx. 180 hiking kilometers in between, thousands of impressions will capture you while you get to know the valley like the back of your hand. At higher altitudes, the high Alpine Ötztal Trek takes you across gaps, ridges and peaks through the awesome mountain scenery while the European long-distance hiking trail E5 leads southwards.
