All those who are true hiking lovers indulge in this passion also during the cold season. Warm clothes, woolen hat, scarf and winter-proof footwear: look forward to an adventure in the fresh winter air. Also snowshoe hikers are ready to go in almost no time. The trendy alternatives to skiing in Lower Ötztal have already become a new boom: well-groomed and signposted winter hiking trails lead through snow-covered meadows and forests while guided tours are also offered as an exciting off-road variant.
The loop tour circling Längenfeld is made to measure for sporty families - also on e-bikes - as the route travels on the valley floor, along gravel and (a few) asphalt trails.
Starting point of the tour: Längenfeld. Off the main road you explore all the valley basin's hamlets, leading from Aschbach down to Winklen. The cycle route mostly travels along the rushing waters of Ötztaler Ache where a cooling breeze is guaranteed even on hot summer days.
Varied rest stop points are spread all over the area. Plan enough time for a stopover to restore your energy.
Tip 1: fun-filled hours are guaranteed at the Water Playground next to splendid lake Winkelbergsee (ascent: approx. 15 biking minutes on a slightly rising forest trail). Don't forget to take snacks with you, and enough to drink.
Tip 2: A visit to the Ötztal Local heritage & Outdoor Museum in the hamlet of Lehn is a highlight for young and old. Take a closer look at the hard life of Ötztal's farmers over the last centuries.
