How does the treasure hunt work? There are small caches (treasure boxes) along the marked route. So now there are also a few hidden caches here. One or more letters are hidden in each cache. Enter these letters in your treasure map or memorize them. Together, these letters form a solution word.

Once you have found all the caches on this tour and know the solution word, you can pick up a small gift (for children) at the information desk in Längenfeld.

Depending on snow conditions, the tour is also possible in winter. Magnetic caches, normal tins, petling and much more are hidden here. Please make sure that everything is well hidden again.

The tour is also possible with a baby carriage.

The route is about 4.3 km long, walking timeapprox. 1.5 hours

Author’s recommendation

Perhaps a detour to the plague chapel. There is also a cache hidden there.

Destination

Information Längenfeld

Turn-by-turn directions

You start at the Längenfeld information office and walk towards the church. Walk along the main road out of the valley over the bridge over the Fischbach stream and just before the Dorfwirt inn, a small hiking trail leads through the forest on the right. At the end of the forest you can find the first cache. Continue into the valley again towards Fischbach. Cross the bridge and walk along the path next to the Fischbach towards the thermal baths.

From there, continue through the forest until you reach a bridge over the Ötztaler Ache. After crossing the bridge, you walk along a gravel/meadow path towards the valley or Oberried. Then turn right onto a narrow hiking trail into the forest towards Forstmeile/Barfußweg.  In the forest mile or on the barefoot path, continue in the direction of Oberried. At the main road, turn right towards the district heating plant. After the bridge, continue in the direction of Längenfeld on a smaller path. Walk past the Längenfeld building yard to get back to Fischbach. But to find the remaining caches, you have to enter the forest again at the turn-off. Follow the wide forest path towards the Naturhotel Waldklause. Shortly before this, however, turn off again near Fischbach. 

Return along the Fischbach stream, but this time on the other side of the stream. When you have found the last cache, cross the bridge and take a narrow path towards the road so that you can make your way to the information office. There you can pick up a treasure.
