Attention:

The original route of stage 5 is currently not accessible due to a mudslide between Sahnestüberl and Obergurgl.

There is a local detour through the Timmelstal to the Top Mountain Crosspoint in Hochgurgl. The stage destination Obergurgl can be easily reached from Hochgurgl by bus (attention: downhill 8x daily) or by foot (via the hiking trail in the direction of Pillersee, walking time approx. 2 hours).

As an alternative, you can ride the bus from the bus stop across the Sahnestüberl to the bus stop at the Hochgurglbahn and get back on the Ötztaler Urweg towards Obergurgl above the valley station.

The current bus timetable is available at www.vvt.at

SÖLDEN –> Adventure Mile –> Windach Ache –> Mooserstegle –> Moos Alm –> Kühtrainschlucht –> Zwieselstein –> Sahnestüberl –> OBERGURGL

TWO BLOOMING TOP-CLASS SKI RESORTS IN SUMMER

 

The both quiet and lively village of Sölden, not to forget the pioneering achievements in terms of skiing. Action-packed James Bond film shooting location, meeting place of the ski sports elite or the glacier spectacle "Hannibal" - only to mention a few highlights that attract young and old alike. But there is also Sölden's quiet side, authentic landscapes in Windachtal where all those in search of energy and strength will find their favorite place all year round. In addition to the unique Alpine landscape, there is another element omnipresent throughout the valley: water! A walk along the Mooserstegle Water Trail promises a glimpse into times past, when precious mountain water was channeled through the so-called "Waale" (irrigation ditches) into the valley's dry regions for watering the fields and meadows.

 

In the upper part where the valley forks off, you pass a small village whose name already tells the geological characteristics. Two rushing mountain rivers meet in Zwieselstein: the Venter and the Gurgler Ache brooks flow together here, joining the Ötztaler Ache. The route leads further into Gurgler Tal valley up to 1930 m altitude and towards the glacier and ski resort of Obergurgl.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Information Sölden, the path leads past the social center and becomes a steep climb there. Follow the Sonnenwinklweg on the panoramic hill before it turns into a narrower path. There you descend to the district of Windau, cross the road and hike into the valley along the Ötztaler Ache. At the next fork in the road, keep left and turn right behind the houses. From there, follow the path into the forest, where you come to a section of the Mooserstegle Waalweg trail. Continue hiking above the Platte district to the Moosalm. From there it continues via the Kühtrain Gorge to Zwieselstein. From there, a steep, wide, serpentine gravel path leads up to the hill. Then you walk on a slightly uphill and later downhill hiking trail through the sparse forest, past the waterfall to the Sahnestüberl. After a short walk, the path leads through the forest down to the Ache and continues to the right past the Piller See to the valley station of the Hochgurglbahn. There you cross the main road and follow the path from Untergurgl along the Gurgler Ache to the center of Obergurgl.
