Knowing the code word, you can pick up a small present atthe Information Ochsengarten, Oetz or Infopoint Ötztal. The valley route along Ochsengarten is about 3 km long, walking time 1.5 hours. The route is suitable for prams.

Information Ochsengarten

Turn-by-turn directions

Start at the parking lot after the information point on the right-hand side and walk to the bridge. Walk over the bridge and round a bend towards the forest.

Here you should look for the first cache. This is located on the right-hand side in the forest. As soon as you have found the cache and noted the letters, take a leisurely walk through the forest. The path is very wide, so that even a baby carriage can be pushed without any problems.

You will soon reach cache two. Look out for the large tree that you can see from a distance. Cache two is also on the right-hand side, but not directly on the path. You have to go into the bushes.

After cache two, you will soon come to a crossroads - please stay left here and keep close to the stream (Nederbach). After a short distance, you get closer and closer to the stream and a wooden bridge follows. But stop, before you cross it please don't forget to look for cache 3. Put it back in its place, cross the bridge and then cross the main road to the other side. Follow this road back through the forest towards Ochsengarten village. The wide forest path runs close to the main road, but is still in the forest. You will soon come to a bench and a small bridge leading into the forest. Look for the last cache here to get your treasure.

After cache 4 it is not far and you come to a large forest playground.

At the end, you can collect your treasure from the Ochsengarten information point.
