The place name Längenfeld is derived from the long meadows / fields. This winter hiking trail runs along this path. The starting point is the sports center in Längenfeld. If you follow the road towards the campsite, you will soon reach a turn-off (behind the skating rink). If you follow the path on the right you will reach a small bridge where the snowy path begins. Without a curve, the trail leads past the hamlets of Dorf and Espan to Au, which is the northernmost district of Längenfeld.

Author’s recommendation

The way back is along the Ötztaler Ache (Auenweg) or by bus. (free with the guest card)
