Top Mountain Star
Exclusive Panorama Bar at 3080 meters
The Top Mountain Star glazed all around, towers high above Hochgurgl on a narrow ridge of Wurmkogl peak. A futuristic summit house that boasts awe-inspiring panoramic views. Visitors can enjoy a glass of fine wine or hearty Tirolean specialties, overlooking a whole world of mountain summits spread over the Ötztal Alps, Stubai Alps and Dolomites.
Viewing platform and refreshment stop
The Top Mountain Star ranks among the most scenic excursion destinations of Ötztal. The perfect blend of a 360-degree mountain panorama, a refreshing breeze and an exquisite range of food enchants all visitors - spirits are always high. Hochgurgl is the starting point for this unique highlight: from there the mountain gondola of Hochgurglbahn II promises an almost effortless ascent. A chairlift covers the last stage towards the summit ridge of Wurmkogl. From afar you can make out the glass dome framed by steel girders jutting out into the endless sky. A true architectural masterpiece and skillful contrast to the rocky 3000 m high summits.
It doesn't matter if someone climbs the stairs to the Panorama Bar for the first time or returns as a regular, the view from the Top Mountain Star always makes you humble - and just happy. To enjoy the moment to the full, guests are spoiled with mouth-watering snacks and drinks by the friendly bar staff. Even a mountain conquest is easy like a summer day: it takes only about 15 minutes to hike up the steep summit path leading to 3082 m high Wurmkogl peak.
