Dream location & directions

Your ski hotel in Ötztal in Tyrol

Just step outside Hotel Alpenfriede’s ski cellar and the hotel’s fantastic location instantly becomes clear: you are already on the piste, right in the middle of the ski resort, surrounded by the towering mountains of the Ötz Valley and at over 2,000 metres. What more could you want?


2,090 m

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.



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.



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?

The start of Ötztal is located roughly in the middle between the Alberg pass and Innsbruck and can be reached by taking the 123 Ötztal exit from the A12 Inntal motorway. Follow the Ötztal road for about 40km to Sölden. As there is only one road, you can’t miss Sölden! Just before the end of Sölden, the well-signed glacier road branches off uphill to the right. Follow this until you reach Hotel Alpenfriede at 2,090 metres. Carrying snow chains is compulsory on this road.


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.


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.


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.
