Gurgl. Alpine time out. Away from everyday hustle and bustle. Outdoors amid nature. This is pure rest and relaxation. Gurgl is just the opposite of everyday life. Clear your mind while hiking, mountaineering, climbing and biking. High alpine regions can be reached in almost no time. Walking and exploring. Hiking and feeling at ease. Wellness indoors and outdoors in nature. Enjoy the high quality of hotels and restaurants. A completely different world. Time does not stand still in Gurgl. Time does not pass more slowly in Gurgl. But Gurgl time is time that stays.

You start going towards the Gaisberg. From there you go past the Roßkarbahn in the direction of Sölden. You follow the path past Obergurgl. When you reach the Hotel Mühle Resort, you cross the road and shortly after the creek. After passing the Poschacher Hof it goes back to Obergurgl and the Informaion centre.
