About Obergurgl

Click here for the best places to stay in Obergurgl

Known for being family friendly, this beautiful Austrian ski resort has spectacular views over the Otz Valley and its glacial backdrop. It's also known for its convenience, most of the best places to stay in Obergurgl are only a few minutes walk from a ski lift. And it seems to be so well organised that there are rarely any queues. It's also known for its snow record - there's plenty of it, and there's often enough of it here to ski all the way from November to May.

As well as the package-booked hotels and resorts, Obergurgl has a selection of B&Bs and some high end spa style resorts, so there's plenty of choice. And because it's got a reputation for being family friendly many hotels and resorts have family size suites or apartments.

Ski Season

Obergurgl isn't just for kids and novices, despite the warm welcome beginners receive. There are plenty of exciting off-piste opportunities here, and often masses of powder. Enough so that the American ski team do some of their European training here.

During the season the apres-ski is friendly and there's plenty of local music to accompany it.

There are also night skiing opportunities.

  • For five stars worth of elegant luxury, including an excellent spa, an excellent cellar, and a half board option which includes a six course supper, one of the best places to stay in Obergurgl is the Top Hotel Hochgurgl. Ski-in and out of the hotel and enjoy spectacular views of the Otztal mountains from the outdoor heated pool. The family sized suites make this a great choice for families looking for luxury.
  • If you're looking for a great, traditional, ski in, ski out hotel, we'd recommend the Alpina Deluxe. It has everything you need, from ski rental to a lively bar and restaurant, to a great spa to help you unwind. There are also exceptional views from the simple, traditional rooms. And this is another of the best places to stay in Obergurgl with a family: kids up to eight ski for free.
  • If you want to be in the centre of things, try the Hotel Madeleine, it's only three minutes from the main lifts, but still in the centre of town. The decor is traditional and comfortable and some rooms have romantic features, like four poster beds - so it might be one of the best places to stay in Obergurgl if you're planning a romantic ski trip.

Summer Season

As well as the spectacular hiking opportunities, you can also still enjoy the thermal pools and the pleasures of the alpine lakes. If you're travelling with your family you may also appreciate the pony rides and mini golf.

  • During the winter the Edelweiss & Gurgl has an excellent spa and sports program, but it also has a summer version, offering hiking, riding, fishing and kayaking among other active pursuits. Every room has a balcony, so whenever you're here you'll have mesmerising views. And with rooms starting from just £83 per night, this is also one of the best places to stay in Obergurgl if you're on a budget.
  • The Josl has a modern, revitalising vibe to it. There are bright colours and floor to ceiling windows everywhere, letting in all that beautiful mountain light and scenery. In winter it's just minutes from the ski school meeting area, and in summer there are walking trails leading right out of the hotel.
