Alpine Drives: The ‘Ötztal Valley’, Western Austria

The Ötztal is an Alpine valley in the western Austrian state of Tyrol. It’s known for its ski areas at Sölden and Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. A stone pyramid on the Similaun glacier marks the site where the mummified corpse of “Ötzi the Iceman” was found. Ötzi Village is an outdoor museum recreating life in the Neolithic era. Mountainside stairs and a suspension footbridge offer close-up views of nearby Stuiben Falls.
