      Gurgl - Winter Holidays the Austrian Way

      The mix of premium skiing, upscale hotels and gastronomy and top-class events makes Gurgl an insider's tip for gourmets!

    The wild high mountains in the farthest reaches of the Ötztal valley hide a special treasure: Gurgl in the midst of snow-covered three-thousanders, almost 2,000 metres above sea level.

    The mountain village awaits with international, dignified flair and upscale hotels and restaurants. Wide pistes right into the village, and hotels where you can comfortably unbuckle your skis on the sun terrace ensure the shortest possible distances for guests. The home of many visionaries and pioneers celebrates an exclusive premium lifestyle from mid-November until the end of April. Stylish, sophisticated, with an emphasis on indulgence.

    The snow-sure winter destination not only benefits from its geographically high location, but also sets a high bar in terms of hospitality and holiday experience. Guests of Gurgl appreciate the cultivated, family-style atmosphere and come back time and time again to spend a few relaxing days with their loved ones.
