The hike towards Otzi-Dorf/Badesee Umhausen begins at the Mure parking lot. After walking through the village, the path on the right before the Kneipphäusl leads up into the Tauferbergwald forest. At the top, a flat path branches off to the left - you are on the Waalweg. A stream runs right next to the flat mountain path, which was once used to irrigate the fields. You will also find the odd waterwheel here. Follow the path until you reach the normal road, then turn left out of the valley (Umhausen village) and hike around Umhausen on the Steppsteig trail. Shortly before this, you may come across the Stuiben Nannele. Enjoy the idyllic view of Umhausen. At the panorama boards along the Steppsteig trail, you can find out more about the forest and its flora as well as its cultural features. At the end of the trail, you will reach the Vivea Hotel and hike down behind it to a chapel before returning to the starting point.

 

How do you find your treasure?

There are small caches (treasure boxes) along the route. Each cache contains a clue with a letter written on it. Enter this letter on the treasure map. Only after you have found all the caches and formed the solution word can you open the treasure chest in one of the nearest Ötztal Tourismus information offices.

With pleasure you can also includ the Wienersteig Trail into the treasure hunt (on your own risk). The hiking trail continue from the Vivea Hotel in the direction to the district Farst, there are also some small "treasures" hidden, which are not included in the "Stuibenfall Runde".
