The royal stage leads from the Braunschweiger Hütte in the Pitztal valley via the Ötztal valley and the Timmelsjoch to Moos in Passeier and can be walked in two or three days. While along the Ötztal alpine plateaus offer a magnificent view of glaciers and majestic peaks and the Timmelstal valley captivates with impressive stone landscapes, the area from the Timmelsjoch onwards becomes increasingly gentle and extensive with the sloping valleys, waterfalls and streams of the picturesque Passeier valley.
Since September 2018, there have been specially designed welcome steles at the starting points for orientation and information. Text stones with selected quotations are anchored along the path. These invite the visitor to reflect on the topic of borders. The insights gained can then be recorded in a newly published hiking book at the Timmelsjoch.
These innovations were realised as part of a cross-border joint project of the municipality of Moos in Passeier and Ötztal Tourismus. The project was funded by the European Regional Development Fund Interreg V-A Italy-Austria 2014-2020.
