Information Oetz

Turn-by-turn directions

This exciting journey of discovery begins at WIDI's Kidspark. You hike along a wide forest path that winds its way through the forest. Shortly before you head towards the Ebele and Habichen viewpoint, the path leads you to the chapel, where the first cache is waiting for you to discover it. After carefully placing it back in its hiding place, you continue your journey along the picturesque forest path, which soon leads you to several walls - but only one of them hides the second cache. Follow the trail markings to reach Habichen safely and enjoy the breathtaking view of Oetz in between.Once you have reached the top, turn off onto a narrower hiking trail that leads you to the Ebele. On this path, you have the opportunity to discover another cache. A small wooden bridge takes you over a gently babbling brook and you soon reach the Ebele. Here you have the opportunity to take a photo stop, look for the next cache or simply take a well-earned rest while enjoying the view. Then follow the path down to Habichen. Look out for the next cache just before you reach Habichen.

In Habichen, you take a leisurely stroll through the streets of the village, cross the busy main road and continue your hike on the forest path behind the hotel, which leads you to the Wellerbrücke bridge. Here you cross the majestic Ötztaler Ache and find the next cache before you cross the bridge again and hike along the river back to Oetz. The wide forest path, which soon reaches the lush meadows, leads you ever closer to your destination. Don't forget to look for the next cache along the way before you cross the Ache again to reach the soccer pitch on the other side of the stream, where the last treasure is waiting for you. Once you have found it, your path will lead you through the idyllic village of Oetz to the Oetz information center, where the code lock is waiting for you to pick it.
