Niedertal valley is one of the most beautiful valleys in Ötztal Alps. It is dominated by beautiful Similaun (3 606 m asl) and Kreuzspitze (3 455 m asl), which is very popular with tourists and belongs among the highest easily manageable mountains in the Alps. You can experience here beautiful green meadows lining countless number of three thousand meters high peaks emblazoned with glacial cover. The biggest glaciers here include Niederjochferner and Hochjochferner, which you can admire from the local amazing outlook places.

The first day await you the ascent from picturesque hamlet Vent through beautiful valley Niedertal to the hut Martin Busch. After accommodating it is ideal to ascend to the ridge of Marzellkamm with sweeping view of Similaun and other surrounding mountains. In addition, not many people walk here.

Alternatively (in the summer) more difficult ascent to Tisenjoch, where is the memorial to the iceman Ötzi.
