Gurgl. Alpine time out. Away from everyday hustle and bustle. Outdoors amid nature. This is pure rest and relaxation. Gurgl is just the opposite of everyday life. Clear your mind while hiking, mountaineering, climbing and biking. High alpine regions can be reached in almost no time. Walking and exploring. Hiking and feeling at ease. Wellness indoors and outdoors in nature. Enjoy the high quality of hotels and restaurants. A completely different world. Time does not stand still in Gurgl. Time does not pass more slowly in Gurgl. But Gurgl time is time that stays.
