Despite a distance of almost 10 km, this route is particularly suitable for beginners. You set off at the Doadleralm in Falbeson and from there it takes around 30 minutes to get to Oberhausalm.

WILD WATER TRAILS – A SPELLBINDING ATTRACTION IN THE STUBAI VALLEY
The elemental power of water is clearly felt in the Stubai Valley, whether you’re amid clear mountain streams, imposing glacial tongues, or on the viewing platform at the Grawa Waterfall.
Water is pure life! In constant flux, powerful, creative and energising, it has cast a spell on human beings since time immemorial. There’s a special fascination in tracing a gushing stream back to its source and following in its trail. This natural spectacle is wonderfully brought to life on the Wild Water Trails in the Stubai Valley, with its unique alpine scenery. From glaciers glittering in the sun; turquoise mountain lakes; a host of smaller springs cumulating in thunderous waterfalls; to small floodplain and outwash areas, the Wild Wa-ter Trails show the marvels of water in all of its various manifestations.

Stubai Valley: The Wild Water Trails in the Stubai Valley are probably one of the most impres-sive and interesting trails that can be discovered on foot. Captivating views and fascinating mar-vels are in store for the visitor. The ways to experience these places are just as diverse and var-ied as the trails themselves. A multi-day tour takes you from lodge to lodge, past gently flowing streams and surging waterfalls. Day trips and individual walking tours that incorporate the Wild Water Trail’s most interesting spots invite you to spend some time soaking up the marvellous scenery. Spa or wellness breaks on the water and family afternoons by the cool deep are sure to leave you with long-lasting memories.

Multi-day tour with lodge accommodation
A circular trail that can be walked in four day stages, running from the “Tschangelair Alm” – a rustic lodge hotel & restaurant at the bottom of the valley – to the Sulzenau lodge, then continuing to the Dresdner lodge at the Stubai glacier, to the Regensburger lodge, and back into the valley.

On the well signposted tour, hikers are led to the most spectacular and wildest of beauty spots. Up from the valley and beyond the timber line, the trail continues through high-alpine terrain, tak-ing in mighty waterfalls such as the Grawa Waterfall and the Sulzenau Fall. With views of impres-sive glacial phenomena like the craggy Sulzenau glacier and the Zuckerhütl, you can enjoy four days’ walking amid a landscape of large moraine and turquoise mountain lakes, smaller salt wa-ter “puddles”, sandy outwash plains, smooth rocks ground by glaciers, and idyllic wetland habitats bordered by wide-stretching grassy stands. Some of these stunning natural processes, which can be observed during the tour, have occurred over a period of many thousands of years.

The hikes are not only good for the body; they also appeal to the senses. You can marvel at the power of water, feel the crashing waterfall and its spray on your skin, smell the damp moss, taste fresh spring water and listen to the powerful roar and gentle babbling of the little streams. In other words, these unique places are also powerful energy centres for the mind and soul.

Discover powerful energy centres
Alongside the multi-day tour there are a total of 17 scenic and energising locations across the valley continuing the theme of wild water. All of these can be interlinked via day trips and shorter walking tours. The routes are laid out in such a way that they are less technically demanding and well-suited for children. Conveniently located setting off points make arrival by car or public trans-port extremely easy. Just as varied as the length and scale of the hikes are the destinations that can be visited. The full range covers picturesque tributary valleys, idyllic floodplain landscapes, superb viewing platforms, lodges and inns, wellness facilities, and pilgrimage sites such as the Maria Waldrast monastery. And, of course, water in its various forms is the running theme – dancing streams, glittering lakes, gushing waterfalls and therapeutic springs.

Take in a deep breath at the Grawa Waterfall
The heart of the Wild Water Trail is the Grawa Waterfall – the widest waterfall in the Eastern Alps. A central setting off point for many hikes and located close to the Grawa Alm, this splendid natu-ral spectacle of huge volumes of crashing water not only inspires countless visitors every year, but also offers health benefits. In fact, a research report from 2011 by the Paracelsus Medical University has proven that after just one hour at the foot of the waterfall – in the area of the atom-ised water – the upper respiratory airways are significantly cleared and there is also a subjective perception of improved quality of breathing. In order to make this phenomenon and the Grawa Waterfall experience accessible to all people, the hiking trail has been extensively developed in this area. Starting from the Grawa Alm and the Raffeine avalanche protection tunnel there is now an open path which provides a safe route for wheelchairs. At the foot of the waterfall, an ornate platform, which is in keeping with the landscape, has been installed. This is composed of two areas; one is for visitors, who only wish to stay for a short while, and a second – substantially larger area – is for people who wish to really soak up the impressive scenery, drawing health benefits from their time there.

Water games at the Klaus Äuele Kids’ Park
At the Klaus Äuele Wild Water Playground, the force of water and its fascination is really brought to life for the little ones. Built on a dried-up riverbed, this is the water bugs’ domain. Alongside a play area with climbing walls, a jungle gym complete with wobbling beam, and a low rope area, children here are particularly taken in by the different water stations – a fox flying over the water, a float for exploring the lagoon, and a water play area with water wheel. While the kids make themselves at home by the water and build dams or set little ships down the river, the adults can lie back and relax in the spacious reclining area.

The Stubai Valley – the most beautiful valley in the Alps
