THE HERITAGE OF THE GLACIER MAN

The famous Ötzi mummy has left its traces in Val Senales

Whether you stand or walk, descend or ascend: At the Val Senales Glacier you will be walking in the footsteps of Ötzi, the famous mummy from the Alps. The site where Ötzi was found is on the Tisenjoch and exerts its magical attraction between the summit peaks and scree. Ötzi’s mummy lay in the ice for 5,300 years and remained hidden for thousands of years as a silent witness of time. Until the Iceman was discovered by a pair of mountaineers on 19 September 1991, complete with copper axe and leather shoes.

GLACIER MIRACLE ÖTZI

The find below the Similaun on the Tisenjoch is considered a milestone for research into the Neolithic period. It proves that the alpine passes on the Val Senales Glacier already connected the cultural circles in the Alpine region in early times. Thanks to the eternal ice and somewhat fortune, Ötzi’s remains have been preserved for posterity. Did you know that Ötzi almost went down in history not as a South Tyrolean but as an Austrian? Ötzi was found only around 93 metres from the Italian-Austrian border.
