A varied hike ending at the Lake Piburger See
This leg promises a wonderful mixture of scenic riverside, forest and meadow walking, culminating with the shimmering waters of Lake Piburger See, a popular destination for day trips and bathing in the summer months. So pack your swimming gear and enjoy the water as your reward for conquering the Ötztaler Urweg.
Accommodation and refreshment options can be found at Wirtshaus Seehäusl at Piburger See; bathing is only permitted in the designated area adjacent to Wirtshaus Seehäusl.
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.
