Umhausen and the villages Tumpen, Niederthai and Töfels.
In the beginning of the region lies Tumpen.

From this village is the slightly up towards Umhausen.

The villages Niederthai and Köfels are situated surrounded by mountains on a sunny plateau at 1500 meters altitude.

Close to the village are two major attractions, the Ötzidorf and the Stuiben waterfall. Especially the Ötzidorf enjoys international fame, and allows the visitor to see how the ice mummy found at the glacier in Sölden Ötzi must have lived.

Mountain Sports
Umhausen is not only known for its many attractions, but also because of the many opportunities for mountaineering.

Several long walks, but also short routes like the route to the Stuiben waterfall, make this the ultimate hiking area.

Other mountain sports such as mountain biking, rafting and paragliding are offered in the region.

Water Sports
The Ötzer Ache is a perfect wild river for active sports like rafting.

Not really a watersport phenomenon, but wonderful for cooling down is the Stuiben waterfall where the water drops down 150 meters.

Ice climbing is possible when the waterfall is frozen.

In the summer months the natural pool in Umhausen, immediately at the road to the Stuiben waterfall, gives you some cooling. The natural pool is open from June to September.

Stuiben waterfall and Ötzdorf.
Besides the Stuiben waterfall, Umhausen has one of the main attractions in the Ötztal. The Ötzi village.

A 9000 square meters archaeological park, where the living conditions of the iceman found in Sölden are imitated with live actors.

You can easily visit the Stuiben waterfall and the Ötzidorf on one day, the waterfall is located directly behind the archaeological park, and both attractions are just as impressive.

Very attractive to the mountain huts, to which you can walk along beautiful hiking trails and several restaurants.
