Gourmet skiing holiday
Skiing paired with gourmet restaurant delights
The time has come! On 15 November 2018, Obergurgl-Hochgurgl – one of the world’s most attractive winter sports destinations – reopens its doors for the season: it’s the first of Tyrol’s non-glacier ski areas to do so. One of the best hotels in the Alps, the 5-star superior TOP Hotel Hochgurgl is also celebrating the start of the ski season – so come along and set up your luxurious base camp at 2,150m above sea level. This year, the TOP Hotel is celebrating its new status as the first and only 5-star superior hotel in the Tyrolean Ötztal Valley. We’re thrilled and can’t wait to share our joy!
A skiing holiday with culinary peaks
Raise a glass in the heart of the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski area, which reaches a lofty 3,080m above sea level and guarantees snow from mid-November to early May. Let the Champagne flow on a deluxe skiing holiday with sublime culinary delights in the Alps’ highest 5-star superior Relais & Châteaux hotel. Enjoy piste to palate pleasures at the 5-star superior TOP Hotel Hochgurgl, where the gourmet day begins with an extensive breakfast buffet – including à la carte creations – served from 7.30 to 11am.
Our cosy Schalfkogel Stube transports you back in time to 18th-century Bavaria. Breakfast includes fine coffee, speciality teas and hot chocolate, freshly-pressed vegetable juices, cheeses and speciality sausages hand-sliced to order and eggs and hot dishes from our a la carte menu. Our breakfast classics are always a hit, from weisswurst veal sausages and French toast to dreamy waffles.
Oyster-in & ski-out
Will you go for the longest downhill run in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl right on the hotel’s doorstep, or opt for exquisite fresh oysters and a glass of Champagne? The choice is yours. A picture-postcard skiing holiday… our sun terrace is the perfect place for stylish fortification with views of the Ötztal Alps’ 21 three-thousander peaks. Sweet or savoury? Relaxing or invigorating? How about them all?
Take a seat by the piste for culinary delights, Tyrolean specialities and international classics in radiant mountain sunshine from 11.30am to 5.30pm. Our in-house, 5-star superior patisserie creates irresistible temptations. As the setting sun bathes the snowy peaks of the Ötztal glaciers in hues of apricot and pink, it’s time for a little après-ski. Will you visit one of the restaurants dotted throughout Obergurgl-Hochgurgl, or head straight for the TOP Hotel’s après-ski bar? Why not try them all on your skiing holiday at the head of Tyrol’s Ötztal Valley?
Your gourmet restaurant holiday highlight
The culinary pinnacle comes in the evening when guests flock to the sophisticated hotel restaurant, the cosy Schalfkogel or the Tyrolean Jagdstube whose interiors were plucked from 12th & 15th century Italy. Then: take a deep, appreciative breath and enjoy the delights of the gourmet restaurant with all your senses. Fine Alpine flavours and regional organic products combine with international creations. Exceptional, down-to-earth, versatile and exquisite. Awarded 90 points in the 2018 Falstaff restaurant guide. From the superb eight-course Relais & Châteaux Dîner and light wellness cuisine to special diet, lactose-free, gluten-free or vegan cuisine, our TOP Hotel chefs prepare gourmet creations with great attention to detail. Sit back and enjoy! The TOP gourmet half board includes a five-course dinner with a choice of three hors d’oeuvres, two soups, two hot entrées, four main dishes and two desserts, plus delicious antipasti and fresh salads from the buffet. If you would like to conclude your day’s skiing with fondue bourguignonne, fondue chinoise or a salt stone grill, we’ll be happy to oblige.
