LAKES, MOUNTAINS, NATURE
Umhausen is a small village in the district of Imst in Tyrol. There you can admire the Ötzidorf. The area is considered Ötzi's former home. The man called “Ötzi” (after the valley he was found in) or “The Ice Man”, was found in the ice of the glacier in the Ötztal valley and his story has been recreated in the Ötzidorf.
With a length of nine kilometres, the Achensee is Tyrol's largest lake. Of course, he can be reached by car. But even more exciting is the ride with the rack railway up there. It runs from Jenbach, which lies at the entry of the Zillertal valley, to Pertisau. Arrived at the Achensee, you can either swim, go for a walk or embark on a boat trip around the lake.
Seegrube on the Nordkette:
The Inntal chain, which is colloquially called Nordkette due to its location north of Innsbruck, is a mountain range in the Karwendel Alps. From the stop at the Congress Innsbruck, the Nordkettenbahn takes its guests via the Hungerburg to the Seegrube and the highest peak, the Hafelekar (2.269 m above sea level). The Goetheweg trail leads from the Hafelekarhaus hut eastwards to the Pfeishütte pasture. In summer it is a popular hiking trail with a fantastic view of the city and the surrounding mountains. Mountain bikers can get their adrenaline-kick while racing down the Nordkette-Singletrail. It is one of the most demanding routes in freeride mountain biking in Europe.
