Famous for its skiing, Obergurgl, often known as the “Diamond in the Alps”, all but guarantees snow from November through to May. Set against the glacier villages of the upper Ötztal valley, it is also a year-round dream destination for experienced hikers and casual strollers alike. It also has rock and ice-climbing, ice-skating and horse riding, to name a few other activities. One of the oldest regions in the world, it’s home to many prized minerals, like the Ötztaler Almandin-Granat, as well as "Ötzi the ice man” - the legendary archaeological find that shook Austrian history.

In the evenings, the area is a wonderful place to taste traditional alpine delicacies, check out hot bars and nightclubs, or just take a romantic stroll through town.
