Hiking and Mountaineering

Get some fresh air
Step out the door and get movement and exercise in the beautiful, crisp Tirolean air. You can start right outside the Hotel without getting in the car! The advantage of being at 1.540m above sea level is that you can really feel and breathe the difference in air quality and that you are already at a relatively good altitude to start your tours! The Ötzaler and Stubaier Alps are a paradise for Hikers and Mountaineers and Climbers.
