Obergurgl lies in the Austrian Alps and is one of the highest villages guaranteeing a skiing paradise.
It has and deserves the title "Diamond of the Alps". The name Obergurgl means Ober = Upper and gurgle is the sound the brooks make when coming down the mountains.
Direct flights are from all major UK airports available to Innsbruck and from there buses will transport you to the village Obergurgl.
