Hochgurglbahn & Wurmkogel II

Mountain lift open

The state-of-the-art Hochgurglbahn comprises two sections and transports guests directly from Hochgurgl into the stunning mountains of the Ötztal Alps. The top station of the cable car is the starting point for many walks to nearby huts, meadows and summits. One of the most eye-catching highlights in this mountain landscape is the Top Mountain Star restaurant on the peak of the Wurmkogl mountain. It can be accessed quickly and comfortably using the Wurmkogl II chairlift. From the restaurant's large terrace visitors can enjoy breathtaking views of the Dolomites, the Ötztal Alps and the Stubai Alps. As well as serving excellent food, the restaurant is the starting point for hikes and treks into the high mountains. In fact, from the top of the cable car it is just a 15-minute walk to the summit of the Wurmkogel.
