Located above the legendary Engelswand rock face, Farst is one of Ötztal's oldest settlements.
If you dare ascending on the serpentines that have been cut into the steep rock (60-minute walk), you are rewarded with a fantastic panoramic view and hearty hospitality at the year-round serviced mountain inn. The Reichalm pasture, which is a 60-minute walk from Farst, is an insider's tip for nature lovers.

Getting there by private car: possible to the foothills of the mountain.
Driving up to Farst is only possible by taxi Scharfetter.
