Researchers have discovered that the Längenfeld valley basin was under water until about 900 AD and formed a lake. Today the valley floor is covered with unusually fertile soil and almost tangible sources of energy. This immense power created by nature is no coincidence, there are many other similar places in Längenfeld and its surrounding hamlets. A trail network named "Kraftquell Längenfeld" (source of strength) connects all these moments of strength and energy.
One of this outstanding spots is your next stop, nestling between the high Alpine plateaus of Brand and Burgstein where you cross the 200-meter high suspension bridge. An elated moment with splendid panorama views, towering high above the breathtaking valley floor with its lovely hamlets, small villages, the meandering Ötztaler Ache mountain brook and deep green meadows. All these wonderful impressions accompany you to your next destination. Great contrasts can also be found here - ranging from quiet farmhouses and secluded trails to Sölden's lively center and activity hot spots!
