A ski holiday just isn’t the same without Après Ski. Obergurgl has lots of places to have fun in, though none beat the Chalet’s own luxurious bar. In case you are tempted to a bit of dancing or après first, we list some of our favourites that are staggering distance back to The Chalet!
1: The Neder Hut
Situated at the top of the Gaisberg and providing incredible live rock and roll music from about 4 pm. After an evening of dancing on the tables in ski boots, one can either ski down or take the skidoo. Non skiers can walk up the mountain or come by gondola and get taken down free by skidoo. Great food and drinks especially the Willy schnapps! The atmosphere here is second to none and it’s great for all ages.
2: Jenewein Umbrella Bar
At the bottom of the Gaisberg this excellent bar plays great music in a rustic atmosphere with lots of sheepskin clad seating. Opposite the ski school drop off point, so an easy place to meet up and begin the Après Ski.
3: Fassl Bar
This unique apres ski bar in the centre of Obergurgl looks from the outside like an oversized wooden barrel. A rustic atmosphere that provides great music, everything from oldies to the latest hits. They also have the ‘Nail Game’. Guests gather in a circle and have to hit nails in to a piece of tree using the thin end of a hammer – harder than you think and the last to sink his or her nail buys a round!
4: David’s Hut
Atmospheric hut at the bottom of the Steinmann lift . One can ski directly back to The Chalet, at 11º East from here.
5: The Josl Keller
Lively late night disco bar just a couple of hundred metres from The Chalet, allowing you to sneak out without your parents realising!
6: The Edelweiss Umbrella bar
Lively outdoor umbrella bar with good music at the bottom of the main lift station
A quick bus or taxi ride away from The Chalet, at 11º East. Start off at Bar Philipp – take the mini funicular a couple of hundred metres up from village level and enjoy amazing views over Soelden
