This hike starts in Oetz. You walk beside the river to Weller-Bridge. At the bridge you walk up at the left hand side to Habichen. At the crosspoint you walk right through the fields. At the next corsspoint you turn right again on the aspahlt road. Walk over the wooden bridge and reach the old house of family "Grassmayr". The paintings are very interesting. About 100 meters next to the house is the corsspoint to "Habicher See". Take your time to enjoy the silence at the small lake and take a look at the ice-cellar. 

On the way back you first walk to the last crosspoint and there turn left. Through the forest is a steep forest road up to "Elsinger Weg" and down to Oetz.
