At the end of Oetz you continue along the Ötztal federal road. Just before Tumpen you conquer a strenuous ascent. The cycle path changes from asphalt to gravel (in the second turn) and takes you through a small forest to Tumpen. Here the cycle path changes to the eastern side of the valley, following a quite easy ascent past Engelswand rock face and towards Umhausen. 

Author’s recommendation
