The history of your ski hotel in Hochsölden

Mountain panorama and hospitality since 1936

As a ski and holiday hotel in Tyrol, we are well aware of our long tradition of hospitality. We also feel committed to ongoing development. In so doing, we value the decades of tireless dedication shown by previous generations of hosts and are grateful for the opportunity to continue on this path. Our motto for today and the future: "Talk to each other". This is why we always maintain a dialogue with our guests.

1936 till today

An alpine hut with a pasture ground, the "Hamrachalpe", marked the origin of today's Hochsölden. It has always been a panoramic spot and a popular destination for day trippers and overnight guests from the Ötz Valley. The alpine pasture was only accessible on foot until 1947. Clear air, tranquillity and spectacular mountain views were certainly worth every metre of altitude for hikers back then. The holiday resort is now accessible by cable car and road and is situated in the middle of the skiing area.

Much has happened since the access road was opened in 1956. The pasture has evolved over the decades into the 4* Superior Hotel Schöne Aussicht, which later became a close neighbour to other exclusive holiday accommodations. The Schöne Aussicht was newly taken over in October 2020 and is now part of an owner-managed hotel group with 7 establishments in the Ötz Valley and Seefeld.


Open to new things, full of zest for action and with a sense of responsibility, as we look back, we look forward to what lies ahead.
