EVENT-HIGHLIGHTS IN SUMMER IN THE ÖTZTAL
An Ötztal mountain summer is packed with highlights just waiting to be enjoyed. Numerous events showcase the region’s traditional customs in an impressive way.
You can also experience traditions and genuine Tyrolean hospitality first hand in the rustic huts of the Ötztal mountains, some of which are hundreds of years old. Up in the mountains you can enjoy the beauty of your unspoiled surroundings, far from the hustle and bustle of the everyday.
Another unique feature of the longest side valley in Tyrol is its language: The Ötztal dialect enjoys a 900-year history and in 2010 it was added to the UNESCO list of cultural heritage.
