Description

White Waters - Inner Peace

A place to recharge your batteries and let your thoughts wander. The rushing waters of Ötztaler Ache accompany hikers on the easy walking route along the riverbank and towards the edge of the forest. On the broad gravel trail you reach the lower viewing platform. Here you get a first impression of the elemental forces of water and the rockslides of many millennia ago. The wooden bridge fits perfectly into the forest area. Standing on the bridge you can feel experience the truly overwhelming power of Alpine waters close up. Enjoy fine water spray on your face and listen to the roaring Ache mountain river.

The eye-catching course of the river is the result of a huge rockslide at the end of the last Ice Age. The original river was dammed up and the water had to find its own new patz by forming also impressive rapids which are well-loved by passionate whitewater athletes.
