Winter idyll at the heart of the Ötztal valley
Authentic and pure winter fun. Recreation and silence from the centre of attention. There is no better place to forget the daily stress than the marvellous villages of Umhausen, Niederthai, Tumpen and Köfels. Discover the fascination landscape covered all in white, either on foot or on cross-country skis. Experience Ötztal's genuine hospitality, or simply relax and unwind.
At the entrance to this holiday region you find the romantic little village of Tumpen. The mystic Engelswand rock face is towering high above the valley, right next to the hamlet of Farst known as Ötztal's "eyrie". Heading southwards you reach the wide and open basin of Umhausen, the main village of central Ötztal valley.
The picturesque resorts of Niederthai and Köfels are lovingly embedded in the stunning Alpine scenery at 1,500m above sea level.
Perfectly groomed nordic skiing trails of all difficulty levels spread across the valley. Snow is almost guaranteed on 16,5 km of cross-country skiing trails, skating & classical style. Nordic skiing fans will find here everything their heart could possibly desire: untouched landscapes, peace and silence, pure nature and endless sunshine.
Tirol's longest Alpine valley stretches 67 kilometers southwards between the Ötztal autobahn exit and the rear end of the valley with the biggest glacier ski area in the Eastern Alps.
