Christmas – snow-white as it should be

Enjoy a fairytale Christmas with the family or romantic holidays with your partner in your private luxury apartment in Obergurgl – the holiday resort with Austria's highest snow guarantee.

Peaceful winter holiday

Enjoy the peaceful Advent time with traditional Tyrolean customs and artisan handicrafts at the many Advent and Christmas markets in Ötztal. A hot cup of mulled wine and delicious Christmas biscuits made by the countrywomen of the region await you. Enjoy the smell of self-made Advent wreaths or look at handicrafts at stalls with traditionally built cribs that are designed with love for detail. On Christmas Eve solemn Christmas Mass is celebrated in Ötztal's parish churches.

Celebrate New Year's Eve in Obergurgl

Celebrate an alpine New Year's Eve in the snow. For instance, on the Hohe Mut mountain crest, where rustic ski huts and mountain restaurants await you with wonderful panoramic views over Ötztal. Enjoy a very special New Year's Eve dinner with delicious Tyrolean “Schmankerl”, homemade Schnapps and typically Austrian cakes and pastries, or with a festive fondue or raclette.

Would you like to celebrate in a more intimate setting with your family? Within the four walls of your luxury holiday apartment in Obergurgl you can enjoy a special atmosphere and everything you need to prepare a lovely Christmas dinner.

More adventure-loving guests may consider going on a ski tour along the piste and then enjoy a bird's eye view of the New Year's Eve fireworks. The clear, starry winter sky will sparkle above you while in the valley below you will see colourful sparks cracking in the darkness – stepping into the new year could hardly be more special!
