From Sölden you start walking past the church to the hamlet of Plödern. Further uphill through partly dense forest. The steeper forest path requires a good level of fitness. When you arrive at the Hochsölder Straße, you continue on the field path through the alpine meadows to Gampe Thaya.

Feast, enjoy, switch off. That is the motto when you visit the Gampe Thaya. If you enjoy your time in the mountains, then why not stay. This is unique in the Tyrolean Ötztal and therefore a special feature of your visit to the Gampe Thaya - a mobile cheese dairy on the alpine hut.

The cows grazing in summer providing the fresh milk, which is processed immediately and served as cheese after the ripening process. A large number of organic products are offered at Gampe Thaya.

Highly recommended on the Gampe Thaya is the exceptionally delicious Kaiserschmarrn.
