Best places to stay in Obergurgl

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.
