The panoramic hike can be reached from the Freizeit Arena (keep left) via the main road using the Zentrum Shuttle.

This shuttle takes you up to the Unterwald district. At the exit, turn right down the road for a short distance, then walk back underneath the shuttle along Unterwaldstraße to the end of the road. From there, follow the hiking trail up to Innerwaldstraße.

From there, continue along Gletscherstraße to Stiegele. The signposted trail begins at "Stiegele". Above the Stiegele you walk through the forest, always slightly uphill to the See district (crossing the ski slope). Take a few moments to enjoy the panoramic views of Sölden.

From there, continue downhill via the districts of Plödern or Mapuit/Berghof back to Sölden.

The trail lives up to its name - a few benches invite you to take a break.

 

Author’s recommendation

The centrum shuttle is open from 07.30 until 21.00 in the wintersaison.
