Winter romance. With every step.

Liberation with every breath you take. Every step in sunshine and with the gentle crunching of the snow. Winter hiking in the Ötztal is about taking time. Time for yourself, for the natural surroundings and for healthy exercise.

To just feel great. Revitalised. And relaxed. There are many reasons to hike through this white, magical land. And just as many opportunities to do so. Alone, on quiet paths, with fantastic impressions to accompany you. Enjoying yourself with friends and family. Whether it is a short stroll or an extended hike, to bring the day to a close or as part of your daily routine. In snow shoes or in hiking boots – 49.5 km of cleared and signposted winter hiking routes take you up close to the unbelievable natural beauty in the Ötztal.

Traditional alpine fare awaits in the inns – and a dreamy panorama across the snow-covered winter pastures, forests and the white peaks.

Speedy tobogganing fun

Romantic ascent. Leisurely stop-off. Relaxing tobogganing fun. The ingredients for a wonderful day of tobogganing in Sölden. The length of the new, illuminated toboggan run from the middle station of Gaislachkogl gondola to Sölden will cover remarkable 7.2 kilometers and is perfectly prepared. Very well suited for young and old toboggan fans alike and with plenty of superb sections and exciting bends. Another highlight is the toboggan run from the Stallwiesalm: after just one to one and half hours of leisurely climbing you and your toboggan tackle the Stallwiesalm, where there are delicious delights in store – which taste all the better since they are well deserved (5 kilometres toboggan run, not illuminated).

Sporty fun in the natural surroundings

Cross-country slopes in Ötztal
For skaters and classic skaters

Cross-country skiing combines sportiness and a connection to nature, strengthens your circulation and enhances well-being. It is not for nothing that cross-country skiing is the most popular sport in high northern areas – and in wintry Ötztal it is very popular too. 195 variety-packed kilometres of slopes. Past the Ötztaler Ache, across mountain and valley, for unforgettable impressions of the natural surroundings and a gentle feeling of freedom. Use of the optimally prepared and tracked slopes is also free. The expanse of the basin-shaped valley in Längenfeld is also ideally suited to endurance and fitness training on account of its loops. The cross-country centre is conveniently accessible by bus.

Winter fairy-tale on the ice

Away from the pistes

Fun on the ice

Feel as light as a feather as you practice your turns on the ice rink in Sölden. The best thing – ice-skating is a sport for all the family. Even beginners quickly feel at ease on their skates. Ice-skating shoes may also be hired – for all those of you who want to have a go on the ice and who don’t own a pair. Less leisurely, but all the more exciting – ice hockey. Whereas during curling team spirit and conviviality dominate the scene.
