Ski holidays in the Ötztal Valley

Remarkable moments in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl

Located in the heart of the beautiful Ötztal Valley, surrounded on all sides by mighty mountains, the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl is a home from home in the Austrian Alps. Our luxury rooms and suites are the perfect place to relax as you enjoy four-star superior service from the moment you arrive. The ski lifts of the world-famous Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski resort are just a few steps from our front door. And at the end of a long day out and about in the mountains, there is no better place to unwind than in our spa & beauty area.

With its combination of traditional and modern elements, our hotel offers guests from around the world remarkable moments in a truly breathtaking landscape. Our hotel is perched at 1,930 metres above sea level at the end of the Ötztal Valley, next to the ski slopes. Despite being close to the ski lifts and centre of the village, it offers absolute peace and quiet. Those in search of a little après-ski action will find plenty of bars and clubs in nearby Sölden. The Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl really does offer the perfect mix of action and adventure, rest and relaxation.


Four-star service next to the slopes

  • Central location in the heart of the village ...
  • … and next to the slopes for ski-in, ski-out access.
  • Snowsure pistes from mid-November until late April
  • Perfect base camp for skiing, winter walking, cross-country skiing, etc.
  • Quiet position at the end of the valley
  • Wonderful views of the surrounding mountains

"The location of our hotel next to the ski slopes makes it perfect for families. Snow-hungry kids can head out onto the slopes while their parents enjoy a coffee at the bar. The resort makes it easy to meet up at one of the huts or simply at the ski lifts outside our hotel." Lukas Scheiber, E&G owner
