Gurgl holiday region

Originally the name Gurgl, as Obergurgl-Hochgurgl is often called, derives from the word “Gurgall” which roughly means “village in the glacier crown”. Anyone who has been here before will confirm it: good comparison! It is also true that Gurgl is Austria's highest parish village and home to the highest road crossing in the Eastern Alps, easily accessible on the Timmelsjoch High Alpine Road.

In Austria you will experience a summer vacation that creates memories staying with you and your family forever: Tirol's scenic Alpine World makes a true heaven for fascinating nature exploration, holistic well-being holidays or splendid sporty challenges. Hiking through shady forests, climbing on precipitous rocks or spending one-of-a-kind family holidays together with your children amid unspoilt nature. The area is also renowned for Tirol's finest mountain bike tours, offering varied routes for beginners and advanced. However, a winter holiday promises superb Alpine skiing on immaculate slopes and cross-country skiing at its best.
