Start your hike from behind the church in Sölden towards Innerwald and then follow the path to the "Stiegele".
You continue uphill on a forest road through a dense forest to the marked junction. Continue on the forest path, for the faster there is a steep shortcut via a well-trodden footpath to the Goldeggalm / Bratkartoffelhütte (1,903 m). The Goldegg Alm at 1,903 m offers a cozy, rustic atmosphere. You feel at home in the mountains on the sunny terrace or in the warm room.
The all-day warm kitchen serves Tyrolean delicacies and is known for its house specialty "Ötztaler fried potatoes".
The ALMZEIT theme "Potato Time" is appropriately taken up. Lots of fun is guaranteed because the kids have their own children's play hut and a large, springy potato.
