It’s dumping here in the Austrian Alps and on social media, everyone seems keen to make the most of this amazing snowfall. I’m getting more and more messages from couples who love the snow to ask about the best resorts to get married in. So I thought I’d answer them with a lovely blog post with the best ski resorts in Austria to get married in.
Best Ski Resorts In Austria To Get Married
1. Mayrhofen, Zillertal Valley
This is one of the best ski resorts in Austria *period* if you ask me. It is part of the amazing Zillertal ski area, with 515km of pistes, the amazing Penken park for freestylers and some great off-piste for freeriders. But Mayrhofen also has one of the best atmospheres of any ski town. It has traditional Austrian charm, lively apres ski bars and amazing restaurants serving top-notch local dishes. You don’t have to be local to have a legal ceremony here, and Burgi the local registrar will help make your wedding ceremony special. And once all the paperwork is done, you’ll be spoiled for choice of where to celebrate. You’ve got the White Lounge igloo on the Ahorn mountain or a number of mountain restaurants over on the Penken such as the Schneekarhütte.
2. Kühtai, Sellrain Valley
If you’ve watched the tv show The Jump, you might have heard of the resort of Kühtai. This small mountain town just outside Innsbruck is still somewhat of a hidden gem. Whilst it doesn’t have the lively nightlife or busy ski town vibe of some bigger ski resorts, Kühtai is the perfect location for that real winter wedding feel. With its high altitude, Kühtai usually has snow right down to the village from December until April, and the slopes rarely become crowded. And you don’t even need to be a skier to have an unforgettable time in Kühtai. There are loads of activities on offer, such as snow-shoeing, tobogganing and also husky sledding. For a ceremony location, the traditional Jagdschloss has a beautiful chapel, or if you want full-on winter wonderland, check out the Iglu Village.
3. Obergurgl, Ötztal Valley
Another popular resort due to its high altitude and great snow conditions, Obergurgl is the highest parish in Tyrol. Although a fairly small ski area in comparrison to places like Mayrhofen, Obergurgl’s 110km of pistes are great for beginners and intermediate skiers, and when the conditions are good, there’s some great off-piste too. But the main reason to choose Obergurgl for your mountain wedding is for the Hohe Mut Alm. Served by a gondola, the Hohe Mut Alm a great location for both skiers and non-skiers. This traditional mountain restaurant can be hired for a civil wedding ceremony, meaning you can actually say your wedding vows on the top of a mountain.
This legendary ski resort hardly needs an introduction. Kitzbühel is not only famous for holding one of the most prestigious ski races, the Hahnenkamm, but it’s got a reputation for being one of the most stylish resorts in the Alps. With its medieval town centre, quaint cafes and designer boutiques, Kitzbühel combines great skiing with chic surroundings. And for ski racing fans, the Ganslern Alm sits on the piste between famous Streif downhill and slalom race courses, making it the perfect wedding location.
