Travelling away from the pistes

Fancy a little variety during your winter holidays in the Alps? The surrounding area has a lot to offer besides skiing. We’ll tell you about a few different activities and the best places to stay.

Winter hiking

Out and about on foot in the Ötztal valley

Admire the natural spectacles at first hand as you walk ever closer to your destination. Explore cleared paths with sturdy shoes or pristine landscapes with snowshoes.

Top Mountain Star

View up to the Dolomites

The panorama bar with its viewing platform will bring you very close to a flight of fancy. The Top Mountain Star is located on the crest of the Wurmkogl at an altitude of over 3,000 metres. Enjoy the view and sample some great food.

ice Q

A first-class gourmet restaurant

An eye-catching feature you simply must have seen – the ice Q gourmet restaurant right on the summit of Gaislachkogl. First-class haute cuisine and specially created wines that mature in barrique barrels at an altitude of 3,000 metres await you here.


Celebrate in cosy ski huts

Celebrate your successful day on the slopes. The Ötztal valley seems to have endless ski chalets where you can take a traditional schnapps or two. What all the chalets have to offer: Fizzy drinks and a great mood!


A winding path into the valley

“Clear the way" for tobogganists is the motto in Hochgurgl. The three kilometer long natural toboggan run is great fun. It goes from the mountain station to the valley station of the Hochgurgl cable car.
