Take your time when driving through the Ötztal, a curvy road and through the longest side valley of Tyrol. As everywhere in Tyrol, here also you should expect speed checks. When there is heavy snowfall the requirement may come into force for cars without four-wheel drive travelling from Zwieselstein to Obergurgl-Hochgurgl to fit snow chains. Therefore always have your chains ready to hand. Arrival in Obergurgl. Ötztal. Tyrol - The Diamond of the Alps. Give your car a break! 

It is about 50 km from Ötztal railway statin to Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. The bus to the Ötztal departs from the station at hourly intervals.
If you have any further questions about travelling to us, we will be delighted to advise you personally. Simply send us an e-mail. We will also be happy to reply to your request for a private instructor.
