The archaelogical Ötzi Trail walk starts at Kortsch/Corzes, leading up the barren Monte Sole Mountain to the ruins of the little church of St. George and continues along the Schlandrauntal Valley up to Corces Lake. This magnificent though challenging hike is recommended only for seasoned hikers. Since the return trip is by scheduled bus service, the bus timetable should be obtained beforehand.
