Oetz Valley. Stuibenfall waterfall

The most famous attraction of the Oetz Valley, with the exception of Ötzi, was popular long before he was discovered. It is Stuibenfall waterfall.

Stuibenfall – a popular name for waterfalls, from the word “to dust”. But the waterfall at Umhausen is the most famous with this name and the highest in Tyrol. However, the height in the waterfalls is not the main thing, but by this one everything is fine also with the appearance.

From Bregenz to Innsbruck. What to visit

Voralberg is a very mountainous region, where even the highways mostly run in tunnels, and there are several toll sections with fees independent of a general Austrian vignette. The main attractions are mountains, entertainment – they are the same. There are many cable cars (I will not list everything), rope parks are relatively common, but other entertainment infrastructure is spreading slowly in this region. It is designed more for hiking and extreme sports (especially rock climbing).

Innsbruck attractions. Old town, zoo, museums

Innsbruck enjoys an advantageous location at the crossroads of ravines and roads, where it was simply impossible not to grow big and prosperous. It can be pretty boring here when the weather is bad. But when the weather is nice, you can easily spend several days and not only see a small old town and Ambras Castle, but also hike in the mountains.

It is one of the few large cities in the immediate vicinity of mountain peaks and ski slopes. It is not surprising that the Olympic Games have been held here twice.

Zugspitze Arena Lakes

Lermoos Fernpass Mittelsee

Looking at the photos in the first part, you may ask – where are these lakes, there is only a meadow and wooded mountains. Nevertheless, three decent-sized lakes are hidden in the forests, and in the neighboring valley towards Reutte there are two more large lakes, on which there are even pleasure boats. And there are many small mountain lakes and reservoirs, some of which are used to provide snow for trails, and in the summer they are very beautiful landscapes.

Mountain lakes were hidden under clouds, but in the forest ones we even managed to swim.

Zugspitze Arena Ehrwald, Lermoos, Bichlbach

The Zugspitze Arena is a ski region that embraces the Austrian slope of the Zugspitze and the surrounding mountains.

In winter, the region is extremely popular with the Germans, as it is nearby, and prices are lower. The owner of the apartment said that traffic jams after snowfalls in the season can be up to 7 hours. After all, there is only one road – Fernpass. And there are not even tricky side streets that only the locals know about. It stays also in the summer, although not so catastrophically, but from Friday to Sunday surely.

If you manage to book a hotel / apartment place here, you will find out that it is very pleasant to rest here also in the summer: there will be enough attractions for a week, and if you capture Garmisch, Füssen or cross Fernpass, then for two weeks.
