Breathe freely. Take a deep breath.

Summer stay & hiking in Gurgl: Relaxation wherever you go

Some say that the world has its end in Gurgl. Others think that the world is just beginning in Gurgl. Holiday makers will be enchanted by the unique Alpine scenery and the fabulous mountains guarding the mountain village. Roaming through the stone pine forest, enjoying unspoilt nature, climbing the majestic mountains. If you think that hiking takes strength: Gurgl is a stimulating place of strength! A village at almost 2000 meters, amidst colorful mountain meadows in full bloom, encircled by white glaciers under the deep blue sky, far away from the crowds. It's hardly surprising that also the worries fly away with the gentle wind. Gurgl is just like medicine for body, mind and soul. Fresh air in the vacationer's nose, without any pollen load thanks to the high altitude. Allergy sufferers can finally take a deep breath without worrying. Relaxing, enjoying and recovering at the highest level. If you want to come down, you have to come up to Gurgl.

Health & high altitude

Obergurgl appeals. On all senses, your soul, your body and mind. Allergy sufferers and asthmatics can breathe freely in fresh mountain air almost free of pollen, house dust mites and mold spores.

Family Hike - Via Schönwieshütte to Langtalereckhütte

First through the fragrant stone pine forest, then into Rotmoostal where Schönwieshütte captivates hikers with its modern architecture. The kitchen is equally excellent and spoils guests with lovingly prepared dishes. By the way, the same also applies to Langtalereckhütte!

Archaeological Loop Trail - Alpine Lake Area incl. Soomsee and Ittlsee

The two lakes hike takes around 6 hours. But time becomes a relative term on this tour. Some 9000 years ago people were here in this place - as Beilstein testifies, where a fireplace and charcoal were found.
