The walking area east of Sölden is a beauty spot for visitors seeking quiet and unspoiled countryside. Although the paths are in excellent condition, and there are uninterrupted views all round, it´s the tranquillity that you "hear" most, and which has a deeply satisfying, relaxing effect. There are no cable cars or lift stations - only the greenery of the meadows, including the Almzeit themed path described above.
The mountain huts serve home-made delicacies using local ingredients, and they´re the ideal starting point for extended tours up into higher regions. Visitors opting for this kind of excursion are advised to start early, to see the sun rise over the Ötz valley.
The quiet eastern side of Sölden starts off in the town where the path winds its way up through moss covered woods and fertile meadows, to an altitude of 3,000 m. A lovely area for daily walking stages and circular hikes.
Recommended hut stop for families: Brunnenberg Alm
The oldest working Tyrolean mountain hut is at 1.973 m, located under the Brunnenkogel. This authentic rustic cabin not only hosts a lovely little children´s playground, but has a wooden bowling alley, making it a favourite with families.
