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.

The highlight is waiting at the valley’s rear end
