Exactly 99 alpine huts adorn the colorful and species-rich mountain region, whether in summer or winter.

The Ötztal has always been in demand, as it seems. Stone Age hunters roamed the high mountains of the Innerötztal 9,000 years ago. This was confirmed in 1991 with the important find by Ötzi, the glacier mummy. But it was not until 550 that the decisive settlement of the Ötztal from the north by the Bavarians took place. The valley was first mentioned in a document from the 12th century: It describes the Ötztal as “Ezital”.
Temperatures to feel good
The approximately 65 kilometer long alpine valley consists of the communities Sautens, Ötz, Umhausen, Längenfeld and Sölden. Despite the alpine location, the area has a very mild climate. This is primarily due to the Tschirgant, a mountain that protects the valley from the cool north winds and the south winds that warm up when crossing the mountain slopes.
Great place in summer. Clean and centrally located. Mountain railways practically around the corner.
