What We Love About Obergurgl:
Obergurgl is a beautiful village set at one of the highest points in the desirable Tyrol province of Austria. Oburgurgl is famous for its fantastic snow fall record and high altitude of up to 3028m. This is why it is so often called ‘The Diamond in the Alps’.
Obergurgl is an upmarket village that boasts lots of shopping and entertainment to suit year-round visits. It is also one of the first villages to introduce pedestrian zones and ban night traffic to ensure a high quality of life. Our ski property for sale in Obergurgl therefore benefits from year-round peace and tranquillity. The village is situated directly next to the Rosskar ski lift and is surrounded by 110km of fantastic ski slopes with a panorama gondola connecting the villages of Obergurgl and Hochgurgl.
Obergurgl is situated in the same valley as Sölden and is only 80 minutes from Innsbruck airport.
Obergurgl and Hochgurgl have 110km of snow sure pistes between them. There are 35km of blue runs, 55km of red and 20km of black. Obergurgl has 56km of slopes! The other 54km of slopes in Hochgurgl are also easily accessible by both ski bus and a panorama gondola lift.
The region has 24 ultra-modern lifts, and every Tuesday evening you can zoom down the fantastic floodlit slopes before watching the Obergurgl ski-school’s impressive torch-light descent.
There are also other winter activities available, such as over 12km of cross country ski trails, a further 12km of winter walking trails (including snow-shoe tours), ice-skating and curling.
Just 15 minutes down the road from Obergurgl is the top ski resort of Solden. This is Austria’s only ski area with three mountains above 3,000m which are all accessible by lifts or gondolas. Nestled between Gaislachkogl (3,058m), Tiefenbachkogl (3,250m), and Schwarze Schneide (3,340m) lies 151km of perfectly groomed slopes, state-of-the-art ski lifts and gondolas. Reaching an altitude of over 3,250m Sölden boasts glacier skiing and some serious vertical and long runs. It is even possible to ski from the top of the glacier 12km down to the bottom of town without the need for lifts.
Sölden’s signature ski journey is called the Big-3 Rally which is a circuit entailing 50km of skiing and 10,000m of vertical which encompasses three spectacular viewing platforms built over the valleys below. The route takes approximately four hours for intermediate skiers to complete.
Obergurgl is a fantastic place for winter activities, but it is in the summer that the scenery really comes into its own. Take the Hohe Mut walkers’ gondola lift up to one of Austria’s most beautiful mountains and enjoy the outstanding view of 21 peaks and numerous glaciers.
There are countless walking and hiking opportunities waiting for you, be it a family walk, a glacier tour or a mountain ascent. And if you fancy a change, there are a large range of bike trails too: leisurely paths in the valley and more challenging single-track trains in the Ötztal mountains.
Why not try some golf in the new 700m2 indoor Golf Adventure World which has realistic training conditions, ultra-modern simulators and a large putting green. Alternatively, enjoy some riding on a beautiful Haflinger Horse which are famous in this region.
