You can start your hike comfortably with the Zentrum Shuttle in Sölden or via the hiking trail past the church to the hamlet of Innerwald.

At the small chapel in the Innerwald, a small path leads along the mountain meadows towards Stiegele. From the Stiegele, you can then take the wide forest road in the direction of Gaislach Alm.

The hike to the Alpengasthof Gaislachalm is a cozy hike suitable for the whole family.

The Gaislchalm is a quaint Gasthof with a small petting zoo for children. The view from there to the Ventertal is breathtaking.

Author’s recommendation

The center shuttle is also open in summer, so the first meters in altitude can be comfortably overcome.
