As one of the most rustic alpine huts in the Ötztal valley with the additional feature of "afternoon sun", "the Stallwies", as the Ötztal people call their hut, is a destination for the whole year.

The Stallwiesalm is located on Sölden's quiet side, so you can fully enjoy the tour far away from any hustle and bustle.

From the Freizeit Arena Sölden, you walk along Granbichlstraße (Granbichl) to the parking lot below the barrier.

From there, follow the wide forest path along the trees to the junction towards Stallwiesalm.

When you arrived at 1,850 m at the top, the cozy terrace of the Stallwiesalm invites you to stay.

The way back via the forest path is also a great experience with the toboggan.


Author’s recommendation

The hut evenings take place TUE, WED and THU.

For larger groups we recommend to make a reservation.

Hut evenings can be also organized on other days of the week.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Freizeit Arena Sölden, walk along Granbichlstraße (Granbichl) to the parking lot below the barrier.

The first two turns are a bit steep, but then it gets flatter. The last climb to the hut is than again a bit steeper.

The path to the Stallwiesalm leads along a wide, groomed forest road. If there are good snow conditions, you can sometimes use the steep, narrow shortcuts through the forest.  (ATTENTION - maybe icy!)

Getting back to the valley, you can either take the same way or (if there is enough snow) you are able to sledge back down.

You can rent the toboggans at the hut.

The proper preparation and conservation of the road, is in responsibility by the owner of the hut.

Tobogganing at your own risk!
