Known as the “Diamond of the Alps”, the scenic Obergurgl, has carved a niche for itself as one of Austria’s favourite ski destinations. Situated in the Otz Valley, Obergurgl holds the distinction of being Austria’s highest village. The beautiful winter resort has 24 mountain lifts and 110 kilometres (68.35 miles) of ski slopes connected with the neighbouring hamlet of Hochgurgl. The iconic Top Mountain Star restaurant stands at 3,082 meters (10111.55 ft), offering an astonishing 360° panoramic view of the Otz Valley Alps and the Italian Dolomites. Hohe Mut Vantage mountain overlooks the upper Otztal Valley and its abundant snowfields is another mesmerizing beauty not to be missed. A majority of the hotels are close to the slopes and they offer an opportunity to ski right back to your door at the end of the day. Most of them have spa and wellness facilities as well. Off the slopes, there are a number of beer kellers, après ski bars, and restaurants. Planning a trip to Obergurgl? Consider staying at one of these great vacation rentals below!
