The ideal walking- and mountain-sportarea for everybody
It's not only athletic-minded adults, but many, many children run enthusiastically about our alpine meadows, learn about the nature of the alps in the Ötz valley, marvel at the chamois, ibexes, marmots and eagles and be friend with the cows and horses on the mountains--- the Hochoetz alpine region is the region for walks for all the family in the Ötz valley.
The modern Acherkogel cable car brings you straight up from Ötz to Hochoetz in less than 8 minutes. There, at well over 2.000 metres and you are away fom the cares of everyday life. Breathtaking panormaic views, peaceful meadows and cosy restful mountain retreats await you... tranquility as far as the eye can see. Easy forest trails lead you to the Bielefelder hut, the Acherberg, Balbach or Kühtaile Alps, or you can embark on a testing mountain walk with the whole family.
Family-Tour to the Rote Wandl
The loop road "Rotes "Wandl" offers great hiking pleasure for the whole family. The buggy-worth and paved path leads you from the Acherkogel mountain station to an stunning viewpoint.
