Enjoyment, wellness and
magical autumn romance
The end of summer rings in a very special season in Ötztal: autumn and its splendor of colors dresses the entire valley. Thus creating a truly unique attitude towards life, a touch of nostalgia that is in the air. Hiking in autumn is full of precious nature exploration - behind every corner there is a new, picturesque impression. It's worth taking your camera with you and capturing wonderful autumnal moments. In autumn you will find very special culinary treats on Alpine pastures and mountain huts throughout Ötztal: autumn is also harvest time. Many restaurants offer seasonal specialities in Ötztal style, promising a unique moment of culinary pleasure. Just the same applies to us at Pension Granbichler where the owner and chef Hans Walter himself will spoil your palate with autumnal delights.
