Längenfeld

Längenfeld is popular due to its thermal spa, the Aqua Dome, and the 10 power places of the Längenfeld Source of Strength.

Altitude: 1,173 m a.s.l.

In the heart of the Oetztal valley, embedded in the Stubai and Oetztal Alps, there is Längenfeld. From a cultural point of view, worth noticing are the Oetztal Heritage and Outdoor Museum as well as the birth house of Franz Senn at Unterlängenfeld. Franz Senn, the "Glacier Priest", was born here in 1831 and was joint founder of the German Alpine Club.

The municipality offers several destinations dedicated to relaxation and action. One of them is the famous Aqua Dome, the spa of Längenfeld with its three open-air hovering bowls with warm thermal water. It makes this village the one and only thermal village of Tyrol. Already in the 16th century, the Längenfelder Badl and its hot springs were widely known, in the Seventies those springs unfortunately dried up. After exploratory drilling, the thermal spring could again be pinpointed in a depth of 1,865 m, and the original Längenfelder Badl was reborn as Aqua Dome.

For active holidays in summer, there are the Flying Fox & Rope Course Längenfeld, a natural high-rope course between between rocks and trees, the Oetztal Cycle Route, and the Längenfeld Source of Strength. This special walk includes 10 particular power places - among them there are a pilgrimage church, a suspension bridge and the above mentioned local museum. In winter, however, two skiing areas are within short distance: Sölden with 144 km of slopes, and the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl Skiing Area boasting further 112 km.
