This small but nice round offers itself to get to know the place. The starting point is behind the Aqua Dome at the small bridge. Here the Fischbach flows into the Ötztaler Ache. Follow the river side (near Aqua Dome) to the main road which you cross. This path was dedicated to the painter Albin Egger Lienz, who has been burying many summer months in Längenfeld. On the opposite side continue straight ahead until you reach the wooden bridge. Here you change the river bank to another bridge. Now keep left now. Immediately a small chapel comes into view. This was renovated a few years ago a.  For a short while, follow the road to the next junction on the left. Here you get back to the bridge which was crossed before. The way back you now take the river side on which you are now back to the starting point.

Author’s recommendation

Find out a lot about the painter Albin Egger-Lienz from the information boards along the way.
