3 seasons – 1 fascination: Hiking and mountaineering in Obergurgl in Tyrol
Fascinating impressions are waiting for active vacationers in Obergurgl. From rugged rock formations to lovely alpine meadows, from rushing waterfalls to challenging mountain ranges for experienced mountaineers. And, just like the landscape, the seasons in Ötztal are multi-faceted and diverse, which allows for hikers to actively experience the mountains. Spring impresses with its colorful resurrection from a winter rich in snow. The air is crystal clear and, with the exception of only a few alpine routes, most of the mountains can be climbed already in spring on one’s own or together with a guide.
The Ramolhaus in the rear Gurgl Valley is definitely an insider’s tip for sure-footed mountaineers free from giddiness. Here, you can hike up to 3,000 m. An unforgettable natural experience in your Ötztal vacation! In summer, the high altitude of Obergurgl guarantees refreshing holidays at 1,900 meters. Reward yourself with a spirited jump into the waters of one of the many crystal clear mountain lakes on the way down from your hike or mountain tour. What a blessing! In fall, the yellow, orange and red shades tempt you to hike from hut to hut. Take a break on a hut where you will be served local delicacies, or sit down in the soft grass with your filled backpack and enjoy the unique light of the sun that makes fall the most beautiful time of the year for hiking and mountaineering.
