At the end of the Ötztal Valley, where the mighty peaks of the main alpine ridge dominate the skyline, lies the small village of Obergurgl at over 1,900 metres above sea level.

Obergurgl and nearby Hochgurgl together have a population of just 500 inhabitants. Both form part of the municipality of Sölden, with Obergurgl considered the highest church village in Austria.  The recent creation of pedestrianised areas and a ban on driving at night means that guests can enjoy absolute peace and quiet on holiday here at the far end of the Ötztal Valley. In winter there is the popular Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski area, while in summer the village serves as an excellent base for walking and mountaineering adventures in the surrounding landscape. Hikes include a forest and water trail through the protected mountain pine forest, cross-border walks into the neighbouring province of South Tirol, and a visit to the Rotmooswasserfall waterfall. The Top Mountain Star restaurant at the top of the Wurmkogelbahn cable car is perched precariously at 3,080m on a narrow ridge and offers stunning panoramic views.
