Haiming at the entrance of the Oetztal valley is also known as the outdoor centre of Tyrol.
Haiming is made up of different villages, including the main village, Oetztal-Bahnhof at the entrance of the valley, Haimingerberg close to the skiing area of Kühtai, as well as Magerbach, Riedern, Schlienzau, Ambach, Brunau and Ochsengarten. This area has already been settled in the 8th century BC, a fact that is proven by a urn field finding.
The main attractions in summer are rafting in the Inn river, in the gorge of Imst or the Oetztaler Ache. In order to live up to its reputation as outdoor centre of Tyrol, Haiming also offers kayaking, bungee jumping, canyoning, paragliding and climbing. Boredom? No chance! If you like it more calm, you can either enjoy swimming and sunbathing at the pool in the forest or skating in the surroundings. Also a part of the Inn cycle path takes past the village, connecting Roppen to Oetztal-Bahnhof.
Haimingerberg is located only a stone's throw from the skiing area Kühtai, which is the highest located skiing area of Austria, offering 41 km of ski slopes. Also the snow-sure skiing region Hochoetz (in the picture) and its 39 km of ski slopes, including slopes of every difficulty, is located very close. A free shuttle service connects the skiing areas. And the "Super-ski pass" makes you access more than 60 lift facilities and 220 km of ski slopes at Kühtai and in the Oetztal valley. Ochsengarten, however, is a good starting point for ski touring and snow-shoeing.
Our recommendation: particularly popular is the aumtumn market, an event in which you have to taste local delicacies such as bacon, cheese, home-made bread and the apple juice that is produced at Haiming.
