The ideal resort for those wanting to experience high alpine walking, fresh mountain air and wildlife. As the highest parish in Austria this quiet, compact village is found at the end of the scenic Ötz valley with miles of extensive, well-marked paths directly from the hotel door, offering many challenging hikes as well as easier walks to viewing platforms and mountain alms reached by gondola. From the top of the Hohe Mut there is a spectacular glacial panorama, whilst a more gentle footpath winds down along the river to Zwieselstein and Sölden passing waterfalls and mountain huts. Fauna and flora enthusiasts will love it here, with an abundance of wild flowers as well as golden eagles, chamois, ibex and marmots. The popular Ötztal card includes travel on all lifts, hikers’ buses and public transport in the area, as well as bike hire and entrance to local attractions, and there are full walking programmes offered by the tourist office and some hotels.

Obergurgl opens its doors to a new mountain hut: Schönwieshütte set at 2,266 metres above sea level in a peaceful location at the entrance to the Rotmoostal valley. There is a large sunbathing terrace where Tirolean specialties are served amongst stunning mountain views.

Things to Do

The popular Obergurgl card is an excellent way to explore the area and includes a choice of two guided walks per day, transport to and from the starting point of the walks and use of the lifts whilst on the walks.
