From Sölden you walk past the church on a narrow paved path steeply up to Innerwald. Through Innerwald you get to the Ötztaler Gletscherstrasse. Follow this street to the Stiegele (crossing Gaislach / Gletscherstraße).

From the Stiegele, a forest road runs relatively flat at first and then a bit steeper up to the first bend. The road often runs parallel to the ski run. After several turns you first reach the Alpengasthof Sonneck, from there you continue to the Gaislachalm and then to Silbertal.

Now you can enjoy the breathtaking views towards the Ventertal.

Author’s recommendation

The center shuttle is also open in the summer and with this lift you save the first altitude meters and can overcome comfortably.

 

The Alm- & Ferienclub Silbertal is also open in summer.
