Mountaineering and high alpine hikes in Ötztal

The Ötztal and Stubai Alps are home to numerous peaks above 3,000 meters (9,800 feet). One of the most famous ones is the Wildspitze Mountain, which, at 3,798 meters (12,460 feet), is also the highest mountain of Tyrol. If you consider yourself a mountaineer, you should really try to make it up there and put your name in the Wildspitze logbook.

Our hotel offers a direct view of the Acherkogl Mountain, which is considered a difficult mountain as well. Other famous peaks in our region are Weisskugel, Zuckerhüttl, Schrankogl and Similaun.

Would you like to climb one of these peaks? If so, you should find out what the current conditions are and book a guide, if needed.

Berg Heil! :-)
