Winter holidays instead of ski holidays

Fun and activities for non-skiers in Gurgl

Visitors to the winter wonderland around the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl don't necessarily need skis or a snowboard for a great time. There are plenty of alternative activities away from the slopes in winter such as tobogganing and snowshoe walking. Or why not simply stay in the hotel and make the most of the facilities or head out and explore the region? While everyone else is out on the slopes, you will have the spa at the Edelweiss & Gurgl more or less to yourself. And in the evening, when everyone is back at the hotel, there is plenty of time for a fondue for all the family. Here are some top ideas on alternative winter holiday activities in Obergurgl and Hochgurgl.

Lazy breakfast

Take your time at the breakfast buffet

Sometimes there is nothing better than taking as much time as you want over breakfast. No appointments, no meetings, no place to be: simply relax and tuck into our healthy and hearty breakfast buffet.

A stay at the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl is the perfect opportunity to do everything a little more slowly and enjoy the moment.

  • Fresh and seasonal ingredients
  • Sourced from local producers
  • Healthy, hearty and full of energy

Treat yourself to another cup of coffee, turn breakfast into brunch and see what the day brings. How about a trip to one of the nearby towns? Or a special treatment in our Glacier Spa?
