When you think of Austria in winter, walking or hiking does not immediately come to mind. You will see snowy mountain passes and peaks in front of you that are massively skied. Not the most admirable image for a hiker. But have you ever thought of other activities that you can do in a snowy landscape? Because winter sports do not always have to mean a full day on skis or a snowboard. Go hiking in the mountains for a day and find silence in this very strenuous activity. The Ötztal region is a very good area to enjoy nature on foot.
