Mountain gastronomy & huts

A quaint rest stop in the Hochoetz Pasture Region is an absolute must.

Just in case you are a passionate walker, climber or mountain biker fond of superb mountainscape, mighty summits and endless sunshine you are spoilt for choice when it comes to exploring idyllic pasturelands and cozy Alpine mountain huts. Tirol's Ötztal valley has it all – especially amid the scenic Hochoetz Pasture Region. A few examples: Bielefelder Hütte (2150 m) boasts dreamlike panoramic views of the rear Ötztal, rustic Acherbergalm (1888 m), jovial Kühtaile Alm (1988 m), traditional Balbachalm (1957 m), panoramic Jausenstation Schönblick ... offer not only table service but also genuine hospitality, deeply rooted tradition and excellent Tirolean delights. Panorama Restaurant Hochoetz (2020 m) is a self-service mountain inn with a huge sunbathing terrace and authentic hospitality. The smaller, serviced mountain huts often serve fresh products from own farming. One thing is for sure: the unique Hochoetz Pasture Region in Tirol's Ötztal valley spoils both hikers and nature fans with quaint mountain huts, traditional specialties and deeply rooted Tirolean hospitality.
