Nearly four kilometers along cycle paths and meadows can be mastered without difficulty for young junior bikers. Start is in Oetz, the main town at the beginning of the Oetztal. Screened, Oetz lies in a basin at the foot of the 3008-meter high Acherkogel. The climate here is particularly mild.

The tour leads southwards to the hamlet Habichen and in a loop back to Oetz. Some inns along the way invite you to a rest. Worthwhile is also a detour to the Ötztaler Ache, which foams at the height Habichen by a particularly narrow bed. Numerous kayak championships have already been held in the rapids.

Author’s recommendation

Bathing Tip: The small Habicher Lake is welcome for a cooling off. An alternative is the Freibad Hochoetz, located near the tourstart. Kids will love the water slide.
