Experience Nature in the Valley of Mountain Huts
Kreealm waterfall
Experience nature in Grossarltal, the Valley of Mountain Huts. Here you discover crystal-clear mountain tarns, alpine meadows and forests, grass-topped mountains and limestone peaks, streams, waterfalls and ponds. Grossarltal is also part of Hohe Tauern National Park, the biggest nature sanctuary in the Alps.

The following are examples of nature experiences awaiting you in Grossarltal:

  • Schödersee
  • Ötzlsee
  • Trögseen
  • Tappenkarsee
  • Schuhflickersee
  • Kreealmwasserfall
  • Liechtensteinklamm
  • Natural opportunities for Kneipp therapy
  • Wild animals

  • Alpine flowers

  • Wild mushrooms

Schödersee
Schödersee (periodic)

A nature trail leads from the valley head in Hüttschlag, alongside a stream and into Schödertal. 45 info boards along the way teach you all about animals, plants, geology, as well as the history of Grossarltal. 

Highlights along the path include Kreealm waterfall, the Ötzlsee, a natural Kneipp-therapy opportunity and, of course, Schödersee lake.


The Schödersee is the only periodic lake in Hohe Tauern National Park. During the time of the snow melt and after heavy rainfall, a lake – several hundred meters long and wide, forms in Schödertal (the walk there takes around 1 ½ hrs. one-way). During the dry period in summer, it dries up and only a narrow stream remains.  This plunges initially down several steep stages, then meanders gently along the broad bottom of the periodic lake, before finally disappearing between a few stones. 

The path leading to the lake is highly interesting: Initially you are accompanied by the water, but then things get quiet, almost eerily so. You don’t know why, until finally you realize that the water is no longer there, now flowing underground on this stage of the path. The view of the magnificent Schödersee – if it is even there, of course – will reward you for the effort that went into the hike up.


If you wish, and if you are in good physical condition, you can also continue your hike through this area of high-alpine virgin forest. After around 3 hours, you will reach the Arlscharte (elev. 2,252 m) with glorious views of the Hochalmspitze, Ankogel, as well as the Maltastausee with its imposing dam.


Wenn Sie noch Lust und Kondition haben, können Sie natürlich noch weiter durch diese hochalpine Urwaldlandschaft wandern. Nach rund 3 h Gehzeit erreichen Sie die Arlscharte (2.252 m) mit herrlichem Blick auf die Hochalmspitze, den Ankogel und den Maltastausee mit seiner imposanten Staumauer.
Natural Kneipp Spa
Natural Kneipp Spa in Hüttschlag

At the valley head in Hüttschlag, you will find an opportunity to cool off and enjoy a bit of fun in the water. There, several large springs with a temperature of around 8° C come to the surface, ideal for refreshing foot baths using techniques pioneered by the famous Pastor Kneipp.

Wild Animals

In some areas of alpine pastures, there are especially large numbers of wild animals. A great opportunity, then, for observant hikers to catch sight of a chamois, a deer or a stag. That said, to increase your chances you will need to hike quietly. 

The following areas are home to the most wild animals in Grossarltal:

 

  • Hub-Grundalm
  • On the way from the Filzmoosalm to the Bichlalm
  • Kreealmen
  • Aigenalmen
  • Igltal

Or maybe you would prefer a leisurely stroll from the valley head in the direction of the Ötzlsee, the site of a wildlife feeding station.
