Now kids of all ages should get ready for some memorable treasure hunting tours spread all over the Ötztal. You don't need a GPS device for this kind of treasure hunting tour but a Treasure Hunting Map available in the local Information Offices. And off you go!
On varied Treasure Hunting Routes there are numerous small treasures boxes hidden in the most secluded places. If you find all treasures hidden along the route you return to the local Information Office where you get your personal small treasure as a reward.
In Längenfeld the Treasure Hunt takes you to a fabulous Fairytale Forest near lake Winkelbergsee. Following the loop trail you will discover several little treasure boxes behind stones, under trees or bridges. The treasure hunting map is available at the Längenfeld Information Office.
The treasure hunting route leads right across the valley's most idyllic landscapes of great natural beauty. From the car park in Winklen you cross the Ötztaler Ache mountain brook towards the entrance to the village. Next to the bus stop you follow the Geology Theme Trail.
At the end of the Geology Trail you will find the picture-book Winkelbergsee mountain lake. A splendid rest stop ideal to relax. What's best, the adjacent water play park makes a great spot to while away some hours.
The route is 5,7km long, walking time 2.5 - 3 hours
