UNIQUE HOLIDAY RESORT COMBINING GREAT CHARM AND NATURE SPORTS
Charming Oetz offers a fantastic blend of genuine traditions, mountain exploration and water sports. The picture-book village center features historical buildings of outstanding architecture – like ancient Gasthof Stern and the Museum in the Tower. Varied restaurants, cafés and fashion shops invite visitors to enjoy a rest stop.
Scenic Acherkogel mountain gondola whisks nature fans up to 2020 m above sea level, right to the Hochoetz Pasture Region. A great base for unlimited walking and hiking: a huge network of trails includes easy strolls, hut to hut hikes, really challenging peak conquests or Alpine crossings to Ötztal's side valleys or Kühtai. There is something for all ages and ability levels.
This beautiful lake basin was a former ravine running parallel to the Ötztal. After the last Ice Age a giant rockslide filled up the plain at its south-eastern end, damming up a lake. In the summer months the lake's surface temperature can reach incredible 24° Celsius. The entire lake area makes a wonderful destination for the whole family.
