Your Ötztal summer holiday can fulfil even your most special holiday expectations. The highest mountains, the longest roller coaster in the Alps, the largest waterfall in the Tyrol, the warmest mountain lakes, the most beautiful hiking trails, the most extraordinary thermal spa in Austria....there’s no end of adjectives to describe this wonderful place.

Of course, some think that you can only go hiking and climbing here or sit in the sunshine. It’s not true! Even if many of our guests do come for a relaxing and exciting holiday. It’s also not surprising that Marlstein is considered one of the most beautiful hiking areas in the Ötztal and Stubai valleys. We could even say that Marlstein is one of the most beautiful alpine hiking areas in the entire Tyrol, with the Faltegartenknöpfle and Pirchkogel summits, and the Knappenweg hiking trail and numbers paths up to the summits with fabulous panoramic views. And the best thing: All you have to do is go out the front door! But you don’t have to go alone. We can guide you to the most beautiful summits, show you places in the Ötztal and Stubai valleys that you will never forget. We can take you to the best mountain inns: The Feldring Alm, Balbachalm, Kühtaile or Dortmunder inns and much more.

Timeout for allergic persons

 

There’s also something else that makes Marlstein a great place for a summer holiday: We’re located 1,800 metres above the hustle and bustle which makes us a great place for allergy sufferers. The pollen count is very low, the air is pure, and as for dust mites....we’ve never even heard of them! Our exceptionally soothing, mild climate is also well-known for the positive effects it has on the cardiovascular system, metabolism and the immune system plus there’s the natural, healthy cuisine served in our restaurant. Marlstein is the perfect holiday destination for recuperation, regeneration and new beginnings. Experience it for yourself...
