The starting point of this circular walk is in Längenfeld between the supermarket Spar and the sports shop Riml. From here a pleasantly ascending forest road leads to Burgstein. Regulars from Längenfeld have immortalized themselves on this path with the affixing of a name chain a few years ago. Once at the high plateau, the path leads through meadows into a sparse forest. This leads then on a climb which is well secured to the Platter pit. This beautiful quiet place invites you to rest. The descent is via meadows to Huben. From here follow the valley out of Ötztaler Ache to Längenfeld.
