Get to know Obergurgl and its Haflinger horses

Located just 100 metres from the hotel, the Edelweiss & Gurgl Riding Stables offer magnificent views and state-of-the-art facilities. The modern indoor training area is spacious enough to host tournaments and has large windows on all sides, enabling riders to enjoy the mountain panorama as they practise.
