Getting to Obergurgl
The journey through the Ötztal Valley is an experience in itself. As you travel along the valley floor and climb up to the village of Obergurgl you will pass majestic mountains and thundering waterfalls. Whether you use your own car or arrive by plane or train and take a transfer to the village, your holiday starts even before you reach Obergurgl!
Arriving by car
Obergurgl lies in the heart of the Tyrolean Alps. A network of well-maintained roads leads to the Hotel Jagdhof**** – Bed & Breakfast. Motorways and main roads are cleared of snow during winter, so it is unlikely you will have to drive on snow. It is, however, important that you make sure your car is equipped for winter conditions before you start your journey. All cars must be fitted with winter tyres.
If you have snowchains then it is a good idea to bring them, even if there are only a few days each winter when you may need them. Before leaving, make sure you know how to put on the snowchains and ensure that the snowchains you have fit your car’s wheels. Important! Even when fitted with snowchains, summer tyres are not safe for winter driving.
