The original route of stage 3 is currently not passable due to road works between the Wiesle and the Untere Hemerachalm! In this area there is a local, signposted diversion via an existing forest path.
The original route of stage 5 is currently not accessible due to a mudslide between Sahnestüberl and Obergurgl.
There is a local detour through the Timmelstal to the Top Mountain Crosspoint in Hochgurgl. The stage destination Obergurgl can be easily reached from Hochgurgl by bus (attention: downhill 8x daily) or by foot (via the hiking trail in the direction of Pillersee, walking time approx. 2 hours).
As an alternative, you can ride the bus from the bus stop across the Sahnestüberl to the bus stop at the Hochgurglbahn and get back on the Ötztaler Urweg towards Obergurgl above the valley station.
The current bus timetable is available at www.vvt.at
The original route of stage 11 is currently not accessible due to a mudslide in the Leierstal! There is a local, signposted detour directly from the intersection of Antoniusweg, Achrainweg & Erlangerweg to the soccer field in Östen. After crossing the bridge, the original route can be re-entered.
