This hiking tour starts at the parking space at Gasthof Talwirt. Here you will find local delicacies and you can buy smoked bacon. On the first floor of the Talwirt is the Bergwaldausstellung and an information point from the Hohe Tauern national park. The Hüttschlager Bauernladenstüberl is nearby, where you can also buy products from their own production. Right next door is the valley museum of the Grossarltal.

The path leads past the Stockham farm and past a game reserve and finally through meadows to the valley end of "Hüttschlag/See". Near the bridge, there is a Kneipp facility and a barbeque facility. Then you reach the Ötzlsee on the left hand-side. The Ötzlhütte (closed) is only around 250 meters away.

The path continues along the river to the idyllic Schödertal (attention: the path is often slippery and wet, good shoes are absolutely necessary.)

Finally you reach the Schödersee. This is a periodical mountain lake, which only fills itself during the snow is melting and after particularly heavy rains. During the summer, it is often entirely dry. Back on the same route.

Author’s recommendation

You could walk to the Kreealm cascade as a short dertour.

Sehr schöne Tour auf schmalen Pfaden. Der Weg ist oft steinig und rutschig, gutes Schuhwerk unbedingt erforderlich. Im oberen Bereich des Weges versperren Reste einer Lawine den Weg. Hier ist besondere Vorsicht geboten.
