Wonderful alpine panorama trail from 2,800 m to 1,900 m. The starting point is the parking lot of the Tiefenbach glacier. This beautifully landscaped path can be made by sure-footed hikers.

A lot of views with barely uphill-meters - that's what a wonderful panorama trail offers, which runs from the station at the Tiefenbachferner in the Ötztal Alps to Vent, the mountaineering village at the beginning of the Rofental. On the approximately half-day hike with a descent of 900 meters altitude you have beautiful views of the White Crest and on the opposite chain around the Ramolkogel. For sure-footed hikers a true nature experience from the glaciers to green alpine meadows, away from the hustle and bustle

Author’s recommendation

The bus ride from Sölden to Tiefenbach Glacier incl toll and the bus ride from Vent to Sölden can be purchased directly in the bus.
