High snow-security from November to May, pistes above the timberline, an impressive panorama of the surrounding mountains and the latest snow machines … these are just a few of the many reasons to go for a holiday in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl! The two, rather calm villages Obergurgl (1,930 m) and Hochgurgl (2,150 m) are to be found at the end of the Ötztal on the high alpine road to the Timmelsjoch. In the midst of this beautiful mountain scenery quality beats quantity – especially in Hochgurgl: The exclusive hotel village is made up of just six hotels. Obergurgl is traffic-reduced, at night all driving is completely forbidden! Doorstep skiing is possible in both resorts. The landscape is marked by the surrounding glacier scenery and the impressive mountain views. Obergurgl is not just the highest situated church village in Austria, the ski area is deemed one of the best for snow, due to its exposed location. The atmosphere here is very quaint and the villages are renowned for their hut tradition with evenings spent in the huts and après ski.
Surrounded by the Stubai and Ötztal Alps, the resort Oetz (820 m) is located at the entrance to the homonymous valley. The cosy town offers diversity for those who prefer a quieter holiday. Typical Tyrolean farm houses with colourful painting, quaint and cosy guest houses and white chapels contribute to the romantic ambiance just as much as the Piburg lake does. Skiers will find the manageable and therefore family-friendly ski area Hochoetz directly in front of the door. The lively resorts Längenfeld and Sölden are to be found not too far away. Here, party and fun away from the pistes is the predominant factor.
