It's not all about beaches and cityscapes. The view from the Top Mountain Star in Obergurgl, for example, is second to none and one you're unlikely to see often. Look out onto the snowy abyss of the popular ski resort from this remote spot and be at one with the magic of the natural world.
Situated in the Ötz Valley, Obergurgl is Austria's highest parish, so no wonder it's got an excellent snow record and a very long ski season. Home to a cluster of luxury hotels, skiing and lifts start directly from the village. Head for the spectacular 'Top Mountain Star' restaurant at 3082m for some breathtaking views.
