Alpine pastures & huts
From rustic to top modern refreshment stops
There is no hurry on the sun terraces and parlor benches of Ötztal's pasture inns and mountain huts. But the real Alpine feeling spreads out while the hut tenants offer fresh, regional delicacies. Incidentally, it's no rumor that bacon dumplings, Kaiserschmarrn & more taste even better on the mountain. Just try it for yourselves - some Alpine inns, snack stations and mountain restaurants are easily reachable by cart road or mountain lifts while other huts and Alpine pastures can be conquered only in the classic way by using your legs.
The following list contains all refreshment stops on Ötztal's mountains - with filter function for a quick search of your favorite destination.
