picturesque mountain village

Peace and quiet at the end of the Ötztal Valley

The small village of Vent lies on the other side of the Ramolkamm ridge, at the foot of the highest mountain in Tyrol, the Wildspitze (3774m).

Visitors can look forward to lush meadows, jagged peaks and sprawling glaciers. Two highlights are the beautiful Haflinger horses bred at the Rofenhöfen farm in the region and the impressive hanging footbridge.

Don't miss out on a trip to Vent during your stay. This beautiful mountain village is just a 15-minute drive from the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl.

Vent: idyllic mountain village

Scale the heights and find out more about local animals

The Rofenhöfe farm lies around 2km above the village of Vent, at 2014m. Here guests have the chance to visit one of Tyrol's most traditional breeding centres for Haflinger horses. The current owner, Franz Klotz, is a descendant of Leander Klotz, the first person to climb the Wildspitze.

Near to the farm is a 46m hanging footbridge spanning the Rofnerschlucht canyon, 31 metres below. Stepping out onto the metal walkway and gazing down at the water rushing past beneath your feet is an unforgettable experience!
