Lying in a secluded location at the southern end of Austria's Otztal Gurglertal Valley, Obergurgl has a peaceful, quiet atmosphere that suits family holidaymakers who have grown tired of the bar hopping crowds found at other alpine resorts. Obergurgl is a historic village centred around the local parish church (the highest in Austria) and its original tavern. Visitors can enjoy a taste of traditional Tyrolean life as well as brilliant skiing opportunities. Ideal for beginners and advancing intermediates, Obergurgl features over 100 km of marked ski trails, which are mostly green and blue runs taking a leisurely path down the wide mountain slopes to allow skiers and boarders to take in the remarkable views. There are excellent English speaking ski schools to cater for kids and adult novices alike.
