The enriching and the energetic combine in the charming village of Oetz. With its self-contained charisma and secluded location, Oetz provides visitors with a restorative respite from the demanding duress of everyday life. Unlike many other authentic Alpine villages, Oetz possesses a rich architectural appeal with its commanding castles and sacred structures that date back to ancient eras. Enjoy the unrivalled majesty of the surrounding mountains by either strolling, skiing or simply seeing the stunning vistas.
Nestled in the center of Oetz like the jewel in a crown is the picturesque Lake Piburg, a shimmering and soothing body of water perfect for swimming and sailing. Soothe aching muscles in the warm and welcoming waters or take an idyllic boat tour that promises to revel ulterior layers of natural beauty.
Undoubtedly the village’s most legendary landmark, the gorgeously Gothic Parish Church is a remarkable religious relic that perches high above Oetz. The Baroque façade allures wanderers, who make the pilgrimage to its picturesque vantage point for breath-taking views.
Oetz boasts a magnificent museum that was recently awarded the regional prize for best museum. In this impressive tower, intriguing documents illustrate a colorful past and incredible agricultural inheritance.
A restaurant, which specializes in the unique and imitable flavours of traditional Austrian treats, is undoubtedly the Habicher Hof, a refined restaurant housed in one of Oetz’s most prestigious hotels. Ancient recipes are constantly redefined and refined, resulting in a sumptuous selection of locally sourced and palate pleasing dishes. (Habichen 46, 6433 Oetz, Austria)
