Hiking in the Ötztal

Our hiking guides

Your hosts are your hiking guides and will accompany you to the most beautiful „Fleckerln“ [spots] in the mountains. Steffi & Peter Falkner, passionate hikers and trained hiking guides, are happy to introduce you to the world of mountains. It is even more fun to jointly explore the marvellous mountains in form of varied hikes. You are securely and reliably guided through nature's variety and beauty. Direct your view to the little things - and you will develop this special understanding for the beauty of nature as well. The Falkner family will surely infect you with their passion and enthusiasm for hiking.

Most of all I enjoy being outdoors amidst nature. I am fortunate enough to share many of my hobbies with my guests. This way I can pass on the knowledge and the passion for mountains, hunting and fly fishing on many occasions.


Dominik, the outdoor guide is a new member of our Falknerhof-family. Spectacular vantage points, the most energetic places of power, and the historical corners of our village, our hiking guide, Dominik, knows them all. He always has an open ear for the questions of our guests and helps them discover many exciting things along the tours through nature, frequently reading animal tracks and recounting local history.
