The round is very suitable for families with children.

In Hochoetz an exciting journey of discovery awaits you through the beautiful alpine landscape of Hochoetz via the 'Rote Wandl' (lookout point). Here you can hike the treasure of Hochoetz with the treasure route. On the route, behind stones, on trees and in other unusual places, you can spot the small caches that will give you access to the treasure of Hochoetz.

Now, how does this treasure hunt high on the mountain work?

The treasure hunt Hochoetz consists of 5 caches. In each can there are secret letters written on a piece of paper. Remember all the letters or write them down, because only those who have all the letters can form the code word. With this code word you can pick up a gift at the panorama restaurant! (up to 15 years). The hiking trail to the Rote Wandl is prepared as a winter hiking trail.

The starting point for the round is the mountain station of the Acherkogel gondola in Hochoetz. Attention: Please note the travel times (can be found at www.hochoetz.at). The cable car operates from about the beginning of June to mid-October and from mid-December to mid-April.

As long as there is no snow at 2,000 meters, you can also walk from the village of Ochsengarten (9 km above Oetz) along the forest road to Hochoetz and make the loop.

Turn-by-turn directions

At the exit of the mountain railroad you hike comfortably on the left side of the WIDIVERSUM towards Rotes Wandl. There you can then recover the first cache. From there, a small hiking trail leads further down. As soon as you reach the alpine meadows, turn right in the direction of Kühtaile Alm. Passing cows and sheep you soon reach cache 2 and at the Kühtaile Alm cache 3. Then it goes back to the mountain railroad station. On this way you can also see the Ochsengarten cable car and find cache 4. The last cache is now hidden directly at the mountain railroad. Once the round is completed, a small treasure awaits you in the restaurant.
