The Camping Ötztal is the starting point for this circular walk. At the beginning you hike a short distance along the Ötztaler Ache past the thermal bath "Aqua Dome". At the first junction keep left until you reach the access road of the bath. On the right side, a small chapel comes into view. Directly past this, the winter hiking trail leads past the hamlet of Astelehn to Runhof. Here the path leads right past the few houses to the bridge which is crossed. Follow the signs to Gottsgut, past the fun park (only open in summer), continue straight ahead to the football pitch in Huben. Now you leave the winter hiking trail for a short distance and walk along the road through a small settlement to the fire station. Here the road is crossed and you follow the Ötztaler Ache valley out to Runhof. There the bridge is crossed and on the other side of the river one goes back to Längenfeld.
