Umhausen in the Ötztal
in the middle of the Ötztal
Umhausen with its various accommodations is located after you have overcome the first valley steps of the Ötztal already at 1,031 meters above sea level. The entrance to the vacation region of Umhausen is the village of Tumpen. Impressively, the path continues past the legendary Engelswand - a well-known climbing area. The view upwards inevitably touches the so-called "Eagle's Nest of the Ötztal" - the hamlet of Farst. Heading south, you continue to follow the main road slightly uphill to the main town of Umhausen, which lies beautifully in a curved valley gently nestled among meadows and hamlets. The villages of Niederthai and Köfels are located a little higher - at 1,500 meters, virtually on the sun terrace, surrounded by the peaks of the fantastic mountain world.
Umhausen with its hamlets Köfels, Farst, and Tumpen is a wonderful hiking area and starting point for high mountain tours in summer. Romantic alpine pastures, crystal clear mountain streams and fragrant flower meadows beckon.
An extensive network of hiking trails and mountain tours, catered alpine pastures and alpine club huts invite you to explore the breathtaking mountain world. The ambitious hut striker will find his challenge here as well as the recreation seeking hiker.

Summer in Umhausen
In the middle of the Ötztal, nature conjures up a kaleidoscope of colorful impressions.

After excursions into the side valleys reaching far into the high mountains, the bathing lake of Umhausen or the adjacent Kneipp facility bring well-deserved cooling.
Living history can be found in the Ötzi village, where visitors can take a tour and travel back in time to life 5,000 years ago. The Ötztal Bird of Prey Park, which is equipped with an open-air arena, will amaze young and old alike.
