Top Mountain Star


Glass-enclosed platforms at a 3,080-meter elevation at the Austrian-Italian border: The panoramic bar with the promising name 'Top Mountain Star' is situated on the peak of Wurmkogel in Hochgurgl. The state-of-the-art designed rotund steel and glass dome allows for a breathtaking 360 degree view. The striking building clings to the mountainside like an Alpine tree, rooted by steel anchors. This place at Wurmkogl is a must visit and of course a mountain top experience! Perched on top of the mountain, the views are spectacular with Alpine peaks stretching out over the Ötztal Alps and to the Italian Dolomites. Get to the top of the mountain and discover the crown jewel of elevated dining in the true sense of the world. No visit to Hochgurgl Mountain Resort is complete without this quintessential mountaintop dining experience.
