Umhausen is a collection of villages and hamlets home to a total of 3,100 inhabitants. This municipality lies in the Ötztal Valley and borders on the Stubai Alps to the west.
Umhausen is an ideal place for visitors to get away from it all and relax in peaceful surroundings. The idyllic village of Tumpen marks the entrance to this small holiday region, which runs south into the Ötztal Valley and includes both the famous Engelswand climbing area and the village of Umhausen, the oldest settlement in the Ötztal Valley. Umhausen is home to two well-known attractions: the Ötzi Village, a reconstructed Stone Age telling the story of how Ötzi the Iceman, whose preserved body was found in the glacier ice of the Ötztal Alps, lived over 5,000 years ago; and the mighty Stuibenfall waterfall near the hamlet of Niederthai, at 1,500m altitude. With a fall height of 159 metres, it is the highest waterfall in Tirol. A hanging bridge and several viewing platforms give visitors the chance to experience this force of nature up close.
