HIGH UP TO A WORLD OF MOUNTAIN HAPPINESS

Visitors wishing to enjoy a beautiful walk as well as climbing some prominent peaks have come to the right place in Sölden, surrounded by 3,000m peaks. Who knows, perhaps you too could become obsessed with ticking off the 3,000m peaks or become an Alpine mountaineer? The Luibiskogel (3,110 m), Ramoljoch (3,426 m), Rotmoosjoch (3,055) and Zirmkogl (3,280 m) await and perhaps one day you might be ready to tackle the Wildspitze, Austria’s second highest mountain at 3,776m. From Sölden alone, there are over 20 routes which lead above the magical 3,000m boundary, some with comfortable sections covered by one of the seven summer mountain railways which you can use free-of-charge with your Ötztal Inside Summer Card. The footpaths which lead to the glaciers are particularly charming and their fascination remains unbroken.


We are happy to advise and help you select a walking route to suit your requirements from the 300 km of marked trails available. A mountain tour full of things to see and admire, a leisurely cable car walk or perhaps you are tempted by a mountain lake or traditional lodge? We would also gladly provide you a mountain guide. In the mountains, it is always a case of: safety first.

With the Gaislachkogelbahn gondola virtually on your doorstep and the Ötztal Inside Summer Card in your pocket, you can set off for a leisurely cable car walk! The number of metres of elevation gain pass by in a flash and you can start your tour either from the middle station at 2,174 m or the mountain station at 3,040 m.

WALKING IN AN ENDLESS WORL OF ICE

ENCOUNTERING GLACIERS

The Rettenbachferner and Tiefenbachferner - you can reach these two giants by bus via the Ötztal Glacier Road. Europe’s highest altitude road tunnel, the Rosi-Mittermaier Tunnel, links the two glaciers. From the Rettenbachferner, you can walk  to the Rettenbachjoch and on to the Braunschweiger Hütte lodge. From the Tiefenbachferner, you can descend down to Sölden.

PANORAMIC MOUNTAIN WALKS

PANORAMA TRAILS

The ascent and descent are an adventure in themselves! But there is nothing like the striking wide-ranging views which await when you first reach the top! Follow a panorama trail and experience the joy of the mountain summit for longer and walk along ridges from one vantage point to the next. The most beautiful panorama trails with information and maps can be found via the link button.
