Almzeit Sölden

The Almzeit Sölden adventure trail makes the most beautiful aspects of alpine life visible and tangible. Seven oversized wooden letters at the Gaislachkogl mid-station form the motto Almzeit and are the prelude to lots of fun, activities and nature enjoyment in the midst of the mountain world. Divided into different themes and informatively signposted, over 20 adventure stations keep all explorers young and old on their toes. Culinary delights play an important role: the huts and alpine pastures serve thematically appropriate dishes and convey the value of regional products - not only on the well-developed mountain slopes in the west, but also on the quiet side, where refreshment stops in the various alpine pasture areas await nature-pure lovers.


Waalweg Sölden

Children are magically attracted to water. So it's no wonder that they are eager to get started on this easy adventure hike. But adults also enjoy exploring the life-giving water along the historic Waalweg. Gentle animation through play stations, mystical light moods and deep tranquillity in the forest characterise the hours spent together.


Geocaching, the modern treasure hunt with GPS coordinates, also leads adventurers to the Ötztal. You can go hunting in the entire valley, with or without digital help. And quite incidentally, this takes participants to the most beautiful places in the Ötztal mountains. A welcome change that is fun for adults and children alike.

Further information

Alpine Zoo Innsbruck

A mighty brown bear toddles through its enclosure. A little further on, otters splash and swim nimbly through the water. High up in a tree, a bearded vulture sits and watches the visitors. Food? No, don't worry. He is well-fed and has found a safe haven in the Alpine Zoo. Because the animals of the Alps are no less endangered than rare breeds from the savannah, jungle and desert.

When Innsbruck's church bells ring, the wolves of the Alpine Zoo howl in competition with them. The graceful lynxes behave more calmly. During the mating season in February, however, the males do make some noise. This is how they mark out their territory. Nearby, a golden eagle looks into the distance.

The Alpine Zoo is worth a visit for young and old alike, even if it is only on the way home from a holiday in the Ötztal.

Kids Park Oetz

The over 5,000 square metre Kids Park in Oetz is one of the largest playgrounds in Tyrol. Children can climb, balance, slide and swing to their heart's content here. All the equipment is made of natural materials and inspires with its extraordinary design. An oversized bridge leads all daredevils into the adventure area. Wobbly paths, balance beams and hanging ropes promise action and children's laughter. Clearly separated small and big kids' areas offer suitable play equipment for kids of all ages. The giant swing in particular is a big attraction. The Kids Park in Oetz is suitable for pushchairs.

Bathing Lake Umhausen

The bathing lake in Umhausen in the Ötztal is small but mighty. It is nestled between the mighty 3,000-metre peaks of the Ötztal and Stubai Alps, and the view from this beautiful spot is accordingly magnificent.

But the possibilities for spending pleasurable summer days on the 12,000 square metre recreational area are also considerable. Extensive, well-kept sunbathing lawns, a spacious Tabaluga children's playground, a beach volleyball court and a tennis court provide fun and relaxation for the whole family throughout the summer. All around there are varied hiking and biking trails, climbing gardens invite you to a mountain adventure, and the Ötzi Museum is located very close to the bathing lake.
