Access Sölden/Parking Sölden

Test result4 out of 5 stars

Evaluated by Skiresort.info, the world's largest test portal for ski resorts.
The evaluation is done as follows


Access, Parking Sölden

The Sölden ski resort is located in the back section of the Ötztal. The very well-built road from the Inntal Autobahn exit winds about 40 km through the Ötztal. There is usually enough parking (free of charge) on the paved parking lots at the Giggijoch and Gaislachkogl feeder lifts. There is also a free parking garage (each with more than 500 parking spaces) at both lifts. In the spring, summer and fall, you can even drive up to the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers at 2796 m with your car. The Ötztal Gletscher road up to the glaciers is a toll road. The toll is only applicable for non-skiers, however. Skiers with a valid ski pass can use the road free of charge.
