Hochoetz mountain gastronomy
"Homely" and "really good"It may be due to the adventures in the fresh mountain air that the aromas coming out from the Alpine hut kitchens entice your nose as you walk by. It symbolizes not only hunger and fine delicacies but also a whole attitude towards life. The pleasant satisfaction of stretching your legs on the sun-kissed terrace of an Alpine hut after hiking, mountain biking or climbing when ordering a typical Ötztal "Marende" snack platter and enjoying the breathtaking view: this experience can't be compared to anything else. In Hochoetz mountain visitors will find several favorite rest stop points: the Hochoetz panorama restaurant (2020 m) serves a variety of delicacies and has a large sun terrace while Bielefelder Hütte (2150 m), quaint Acherbergalm (1888 m), jovial Kühtaile Alm (1988 m) and traditional Balbachalm (1957 m) offer delicious dishes prepared with fresh ingredients - sometimes even from own production.
