A varied route with an opportunity to stop for a break at Wurzbergalm. Don’t forget to plan in a detour to the picturesque Lake Winkelbergsee.
Embark on your walk along the Ötztaler Ache River for the first section of your walk. At the Winkelberger lake, the path ascends to the rustic Wurzbergalm Hut, which is run by a local family, take a rest and try some of their produce. Take in the view of the village, Köfels, which is situated on the high plateau across the valley, before descending to Umhausen.
Make sure you plan in a detour to visit Lake Winkelbergsee.
Check the latest weather information (for example by asking at your accommodation or the local tourist information centre) and be on the lookout for changes in the weather. If the weather is stormy or very rainy, do not walk this trail, as the path can be slippery.
We recommend wearing hiking boots that are well broken-in, plus a rain jacket and waterproof trousers in wet weather, as well as taking sun cream and a hat on nicer days.
In your information pack, you’ll find a detailed list of all the required hiking gear, including some good hiking boots, appropriate clothing, a rain jacket and a backpack
