Dream location & directions
Your ski hotel in Ötztal in Tyrol
The village of Hochsölden, which even in winter is easy to reach with snow chains on the Hochsölden road, is a pure winter sport’s location right in the middle of the ski resort. It’s just a short run to the nearest lift, from where the whole ski resort is accessible to you, including the glaciers and the three thousand metre peaks. Ski-in ski-out is the motto.
ÖTZtal AND TYROL
Around 50km west of the Inn Valley, the Ötz Valley opens up to the south. It long ago earned its reputation as the ‘highlight of Tyrol’ and this is clearly demonstrated by its many sports opportunities, the beauty of nature, the soaring three thousand metre peaks and the first-class ski resorts.
DIRECTIONS TO HOTEL ALPENFRIEDE
The hotel is mostly easy to reach even in the depths of winter. The Hochsölden road which leads up from the village of Sölden is always well cleared but snow chains are still compulsory.
How do I get to Hochsölden?
ARRIVAL BY CAR
Please note, that it is compulsory to carry snow chains on the Hochsölden road in winter. However, thanks to good snow clearance, the road is normally very passable. You can reach the Ötz Valley via the A12 Inntal motorway and from there take the Ötztal exit.
ARRIVAL BY TRAIN
Of course, travelling by train is more comfortable and cheaper than by car. Just sit back and your holiday starts as soon as you take your seat in your compartment. Travelling by train is environmentally friendly, cheap and comfortable.
Take the train from your home town to Innsbruck. From there, take another train to Ötztal station or alternatively you could catch a bus from Innsbruck. Now it’s just around 50 km to Hotel Alpenfriede in Hochsölden.
From Ötztal station you’ll find good bus links to all of the Ötz Valley villages, including Hochsölden. The Hotel Alpenfriede team would be happy to organise a transfer for you from Innsbruck station or Ötztal station.
ARRIVAL BY PLANE
Are you flying to Austria? The Ötztal shuttle will take you right to the hotel doors from Innsbruck airport. The Hotel Alpenfriede staff would also be happy to help you organise your individual travel to the Ötz Valley.
