Après-ski fun in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl is as much part of a skiing holiday as skiing itself!

Obergurgl-Hochgurgl après-ski

TOP skiing holiday with après-ski party fun

Inserting après-ski breaks in the skiing day is fun, sociable and is the pleasurable highlight of many a skiing holiday. In the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski area, including a range of different après-ski experiences in your winter break schedule does not pose much of a challenge. Here, at the head of the Tyrolean Ötztal Valley, there are many cosy, convivial, classy and quaint après-ski venues to choose from. The warm and welcoming après-ski spots are not just for party animals. Give them a try and find your favourite pit-stop in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl.

It’s the hub of the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski area where après-ski party fun at lofty heights await. This is especially true on Mondays and Fridays when live music by the Akustik Duo sets the tone in the heart of the Hochgurgl ski resort. Whether indoors where 250 can congregate or outside where there is space for up to 200 winter holiday connoisseurs, expect good cheer and great drinks – the embodiment of après-ski fun. Hearty snacks, a sun terrace and fantastic views are included. You can reach the Schermer Schirm on the Top Express from Obergurgl and from Hochgurgl on the Hochgurglbahn II, the Vorderer Wurmkogel Lift, the Wurmkogel I and the Schermer Zentralbahn.

If you prefer your après-ski fun a bit closer to the valley, this is the place for you. Stash away your ski equipment before enjoying a relaxing conclusion to your skiing day! At 1,780m above sea level, the umbrella bar at the Hochgurglbahn’s lower terminus is the perfect location. Near a bus stop and the car park in Pill (Untergurgl), it offers refreshment as well as high spirits in every sense of the word! Live music every Thursday at 7pm.

Tip: Combine your break with night skiing on Thursdays from 6pm to 10.30pm. The Hochgurglbahn umbrella bar has space for 150 guests and is open until midnight on Thursdays!

Raise a glass to life, friendship and holidays adjacent to the Wurmkoglhütte midway station at 2,807m above sea level. Follow the delights of authentic Tyrolean fare at the Wurmkoglhütte with ‘one for the road’ at Geri’s Schirmbar, or make yourself comfortable in one of the sun loungers on the terrace – either way, Geri’s Schirmbar is the perfect après-ski location in the heart of the ski area, offering sunbathing, piste views and a vast array of drinks (as well as delicious fare). There’s enough space inside for 150 skiers and you can get there with the Wurmkoglbahn II.
The umbrella bar at the 5-star superior TOP Hotel Hochgurgl is the place to be for those who set their sights high. Not just thanks to the altitude at 2,150 metres in the Alps’ highest ski resort and luxury hotel, but also because the drinks at the umbrella bar are perfect for combining with the exquisite delights available from the oyster bar. Or with the sweet temptations offered by the best hotel in the Ötztal Valley’s in-house patisserie. Or – perhaps a little later – with an elegant dinner at the Relais & Chateaux gourmet temple and a glass of fine wine or cocktails in the fireplace bar. Have a great time in the TOP Hotel Hochgurgl’s après-ski bar. By the way, this winter will be its last before we surprise you with a splendid new ice bar which will be ready for next ski season. We think you’ll love it!


Follow the sun…
we particularly recommend a lunchtime stop at the Schermer Schirm or Geri’s Schirmbar, and in the afternoon, you’ll find the umbrella bars at the Hochgurglbahn and the TOP Hotel Hochgurgl ideal for a spot of sun-worshipping.
