Sölden – Ötztal's main village

Winter sport at its finest

Sölden is the Ötztal valley's biggest destination and is located around 40 kilometres from the Inntal motorway and the start of the Ötztal. Thanks to its wonderful ski region, which Hochsölden is part of, Sölden has become a first-class ski resort village without exploiting the region or the natural environment. 

A small place of records

Sölden is Austria's largest municipality in terms of surface area, but has a population of only 4,200. This already shows how great the proportion of undeveloped land and how many mountains, glaciers and peaks this region has to offer. Sölden also has a few other records: The tunnel at the end of the Ötztal Glacier Road is Europe's highest motorway tunnel and with both of the glaciers – the Rettenbachferner and the Tiefenbachferner – Sölden is also Austria's largest glacier skiing region and only a stone's throw away from your Alpenfriede Hotel in Hochsölden.

Sölden as a winter sports destination

Thanks to the glaciers, you can enjoy skiing in Sölden from November until May, which means more than 6 months of skiing bliss. The perfect conditions here made the Rettenbachferner the first choice when it came to look for the perfect venue for the opening race of the Skiing World Cup.

Après ski, events & international flair

Sölden has for many years been one of Europe's best-known ski regions. Here one can meet skiers from all over the world, celebrate fun parties and see excellent events, like the Hannibal Glacier Spectacle. As a guest at the Alpenfriede Hotel you are ideally situated 700 metres above the hustle and bustle and thus in a very peaceful location.

As you can see, there are many advantages here at our hotel in Hochsölden: The central location in the middle of the ski region, the peace and quiet in the evenings and yet après ski and nightlife are only a stone's throw away. Send us your no obligation holiday enquiry and enjoy the perfect skiing holiday high above Sölden – in Hochsölden.
