Hiking and trekking at the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl

Discover the Ötztal Alps on foot

Hiking in the mountains around Obergurgl is a unique experience. Cross over the border to South Tyrol via the Timmelsjoch Pass and discover the Italian side of the Alps before returning to the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl for a fine meal in the evening.

The mountains around Obergurgl are home to 100 kilometres of well-maintained hiking trails, giving visitors the opportunity to experience the Ötztal Alps close up. Follow in the footsteps of smugglers and adventurers on a hike over the Austrian-Italian border to South Tyrol via a secret path once used to transport contraband far away from the prying eyes of customs officers.

The Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl is the ideal starting point for hikes and treks to the peaks around this beautiful mountain village.
