In the high winter as well as in the spring this is a great nature experience in the warming sun.

Guided Winter Hikes to the Lake

Every Tuesday a guided winter hike to the Piburger See lake is offered.

Amidst the breath-taking mountain scenery of the Ötzal Alps lies the Piburger See lake, which mirrors the surrounding mountains in its water. In the winter it is partly frozen and the area is used for different winter sports. Since 1929 the area has been placed under a nature conservation order. From our nature park guide you can learn more about the impressive uniqueness of this gem of nature. Discover – marvel – enjoy…

Guided Lantern Hike

December to April 

Every Wednesday a guided lantern hike to the floodlit Stuibenfall waterfall takes place. With our guide you hike from the village centre of Umhausen to the campsite and from there along the country lane past the Ötzi Village and along the toboggan run past the Waldcafé Stuböbele. If snow and ice conditions allow for it, it is possible to hike to the first platform of the floodlit Stuibenfall. On the way back we enjoy a break at the Waldcafé Stuböbele and return along the driveway.
