Author’s recommendation

This hike can be shortened if necessary.

There is a bus to Obergurgl from the Timmeljoch toll booth which goes four times daily. (it shortens the day by 9km, 900m altitude difference, approx. 3.5 hours). You can also shorten the walk at the start of your day by taking the shuttle bus from Sölden to the Sahnestüberl Hut (shortens the walk by 9km, 650m altitude difference, 3.5 hours).

The restaurant at the toll station is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Turn-by-turn directions

This alternative route takes you from Sölden through the beautiful Kühtain Gorge to Zwieselstein and along the E5. Instead of turning off in the direction of Obergurgl and Sahenstüberl, continue ascending until you come to a junction in the direction of Timmelsjochstraße.

You walk a little way down the street to the toll booth and the restaurant on the Timmelsjoch. Shortly after the toll booth, a hiking trail branches off to the RIGHT and leads you steeply downwards. The path finally swings to the LEFT and you walk parallel to the road on a hiking trail to the village of Obergurgl.
