LÄNGENFELD - PLACES OF STRENGTH AND ENERGY

 

Researchers have discovered that the Längenfeld valley basin was under water until about 900 AD and formed a lake. Today the valley floor is covered with unusually fertile soil and almost tangible sources of energy. This immense power created by nature is no coincidence, there are many other similar places in Längenfeld and its surrounding hamlets. A trail network named "Kraftquell Längenfeld" (source of strength) connects all these moments of strength and energy.

 

One of this outstanding spots is your next stop, nestling between the high Alpine plateaus of Brand and Burgstein where you cross the 200-meter high suspension bridge. An elated moment with splendid panorama views, towering high above the breathtaking valley floor with its lovely hamlets, small villages, the meandering Ötztaler Ache mountain brook and deep green meadows. All these wonderful impressions accompany you to your next destination. Great contrasts can also be found here - ranging from quiet farmhouses and secluded trails to Sölden's lively center and activity hot spots!

Turn-by-turn directions

The starting point of this hike is in the center of Längenfeld at the height of Fischbach bridge. The first steps lead into the so-called Klamm area (ravine) where you choose the left side of the brooklet and hike a few altitude meters along the Strelesperre rocky path towards the rustic Brand Alm. After a40-minute ascent you reach the idyllic mountain farm in Brand. From there you first cross a dense forest, following the trail over a 220 m high suspension bridge offering an incredible panorama of Längenfeld’s unique valley basin.
The hamlet of Burgstein, nestling on a sunny high Alpine plateau, offers authentic mountain farm idyll. There you follow the ascending Jadgweg trail until you get to a secluded hunter‘s hut. Continue along the mountainside and descend to the hamlet of Winkle. At the huge quarry you turn left, then you hike uphill through the forest and downhill again past the hamlet of Winkle and further on to Bruggen. Take the underpass at the end of Bruggen, cross the main road and follow the trail into the valley to Aschbach. After another underpass you reach the otherside of the road, following the signposts towards Sölden. Along the tree line you hike above the large hamlets of Sölden - Kaisers, Schmiedhof, Rechenau - to the village center of Sölden.
