Wintertime is also hiking time
The Ötztal is not only an Eldorado for skiers. "Winter hikers" also get their money’s worth here in Längenfeld.
You will find managed alpine pastures with toboggan rentals, or cabins with taxi transfers throughout the Ötztal.

After a short break to catch your breath, you continue uphill for about 2 km, to another serviced cabin on Amberg (Note the avalanche warning level) – you take the same route back, either on foot, or on a toboggan (toboggans can be hired at both cabins).
