Ötztal Verified partner Explorers Choice
In the middle of the unique mountain world of the Ötztaler Alps, guests are spoiled with everything their heart desires. In the summer, the Hühnersteign is the perfect destination for hikers, mountaineers and bikers.
Enjoy hours of sunshine on the wonderful terrace with a view of the beautiful mountain panorama, which seems close enough to touch.
The Hühnersteige can be reached via simple hiking trails, starting from the middle station of the Gaislachkoglbahn (approx. 45 minutes) or from Hochsölden via the panorama path (approx. 45 minutes).
In addition, the "Ollweit Line" (a trail of the Bike Republic Sölden) leads directly past the hut. You can also easily reach the hut by car or bus - it's only a three-minute walk from the toll station (Gletscherstraße).
From Sölden you can get to the hut by passing the church into the hamlet of Grünwald, continue along the steeper forest path onto the road that leads to Hochsölden, to the Gampe Alm junction. Then continue south across the Gampe Alm to the marked path, slightly uphill to the Hühnersteign.
Sie haben auch die Möglichkeit im Sommer wie im Winter mit dem Gletscherbus Richtung Mautstelle zu fahren.
Dort aussteigen erreichen Sie die Hühnersteige in 2 Minuten. Den Fahrplan für den Gletscherbus finden Sie unter folgendem Link https://www.oetztaler.at/linienverkehr/.
