Summer holiday in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl

Summer retreat in Tyrol

In Winter, lots of winter sports enthusiasts bustle on the slopes here, but in summer there is nothing but mountain idyll in and around Obergurgl. Fresh mountain air, high alpine nature and a mountain top panorama like nowhere else in Tyrol – the mountain region around Obergurgl and Hochgurgl provides a special kind of magic, even in the summer. Summit ascents, climbing experiences as well as motorcycling and mountain biking tours invite summer tourists to Ötztal during the warm months.


Along the splashing Ötztal River, up to the glaciers, to the mountain lakes or to one of the challenging peaks – around Obergurgl you will find a great range of hiking trails for your hiking holidays in Austria. Alpinists will find quite some challenges in the rough terrain within upper Ötztal.


Gorgeous motorcycling tours start right in Obergurgl. You should not miss out on the panorama roads up to Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers in Sölden. Another highlight is the tour along the Timmeljoch High Alpine Road, that with its 60 bends and fantastic mountain panorama is rightly considered one of the Alps' most beautiful pass roads. Starting from the Ötztal Alps you can explore South Tyrol, the Province of Tyrol, East Tyrol and Vorarlberg during your motorcycling holiday in Obergurgl.

Mountain bike

As the place is framed by a panorama of 21 peaks of 3,000m and above, there are numerous mountain biking trails around Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. In addition to family-friendly paths in the valley there are also great challenges waiting for bikers in the alpine terrain. Some trails lead all the way up to the mountain tops and into the vicinity of glaciers.


Ötztal is considered to be the Mecca of the Tyrolean climbing scene. 7 via ferratas, 19 climbing crags with around 600 tours and the Outdoor park Area 47 climbing paradise spoil fans of the vertical action-packed fun for choice.


Several lakes and lidos in Ötztal make for comfortably wet and fun-packed trips. In case of rain we recommend a visit at Aqua Dome, a great alternative when the sun isn't shining. If you are looking for action there is only one place to go: Area 47, a huge outdoor area with climbing facilities, water sports facilities, water slides and much more. In order to learn more about Ötztal's history visit one of the many museums and sights.
