Eating and drinking in TOP Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski resort
From après-ski in a simple mountain hut to Champagne in a panoramic summit bar
For hungry winter sports fans
Even the most single-minded piste aficionados enjoy a break or two in the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski resort – the choice of culinary locations adjacent to and above the slopes is truly limitless and ranges from local delicacies to international culinary delights. From Champagne to thirst-quenching local beers, the region’s food and drink is as multifaceted as you are. Enjoy culinary delights spiced with Tyrolean warmth, charming hospitality and an extra-large portion of fun.
Also limitless: the view that takes your gaze from the Ötztal Alps’ majestic three-thousanders to the snow-capped peaks of the Dolomites. Feel the freedom – and savour it with a cup of coffee, morning snack, gourmet lunch with fine wines or by simply relaxing for the afternoon… do whatever your heart desires.
Enjoy the lunchtime sunshine with a filling savoury dish or a little something that’s light, creamy and sweet. In the afternoon, stop for refreshments in a cosy ski hut or chill out by the ice bar. You might also be attracted by the sweet temptations offered by the Relais & Châteaux TOP Hotel Hochgurgl’s own patisserie. How about a drink in the 5-star superior hotel’s après-ski bar before tucking in to barbecued steaks or spare ribs at the Downhill Grill? Everything is possible – in the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski resort, you choose whatever you fancy, accompanied by anything you like.
If you still feel energetic after your action-packed day, night tobogganing with refreshments might be just the thing. It’s an unmissable activity. As are the many hut events and après-ski parties in the ski area. If you prefer things a little quieter, we look forward to welcoming you in style to our fireplace bar – it’s the meeting place.
