They do exist, the days full of sunshine from the first rooster crow until late in the evening. But we don't want to sugarcoat anything, obviously there is poor weather from time to time. Short hikes are always possible with waterproof outdoor clothing, but taking it easy and moving activities indoors is just as good.
Just have a good loooong sleep. Holidays are always meant to allow for a bit of regeneration, which is why it doesn't matter if one morning the rain taps gently on the window. Enjoy a leisurely start to the day with a hearty breakfast at the Hotel Valentin. And it is here where you can decide at your leisure which poor weather programme in Sölden to choose.
Pleasure shopping away from crowded shopping centres awaits you in the centre of Sölden, just a few minutes' walk from the Hotel Valentin. Browse sports and fashion shops and find souvenirs and Tyrolean delicacies to take home.
Up the mountain despite bad weather. Or rather, into the interior of the mountain. Action fans can expect a James Bond experience world with interactive high-tech galleries covering 1,300 sqm on the Gaislachkogl. While known as an outdoor location, Area 47 also offers attractions protected from the weather with a high ropes course located under a bridge and an indoor e-motocross hall. The Water Area is also very popular in poor weather. This is because no matter what the weather is like, you get wet there anyway.
The entrance to the Ötztal valley is characterized by a particularly mild climate. The inner alpine climate of the Inntal and the massive rock of the Tschirgant, which protects against cold north winds, ensure that the landscape around the communities of Haiming and Sautens became the heart of Tyrolean fruit growing - with more than 60,000 apple and fruit trees - but also vines. Accordingly, numerous specialists for noble brandies can be found here and, with the Zoller Saumwald family, a producer of literally excellent wine. Anyone who wants to taste the award-winning Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Noir can make an appointment with the couple in Haiming. This can also be done for high-proof products at the noble distillery of the Mair family in Sautens, who produce 25 brandies and ten liqueurs from their own (untreated) fruit cultivation. Manni's Edelbrände and the Strigl schnapps distillery are also located in the same village.
In the Freizeit Arena Sölden you can plunge into the water adventure or just chill and relax. Conquer the adventure pool, treat yourself to relaxation in the sauna, work out at tennis, indoor ball, bowling, in the gym, on the beach volleyball court, at street soccer, on the ice skating rink, curling rink or on the children's playground. Or simply let yourself be spoiled with culinary delights in the Bistro or Café Pusteblume.
With us you are spoiled for choice.
Warm thermal water, hot sauna steam and plenty of relaxing moments in the Aqua Dome guarantee a good mood in poor weather. Fully indulge yourself in the huge spa area and the three impressive floating bowls with the best views of the Ötz Valley.
Indoor water fun can also be found directly in Sölden in the Leisure Arena. There is plenty of fun to be had on holiday in the adventure pool with its whitewater canal, rock grotto, children's pool and bubble loungers.
The traditional production of natural products is alive and well in the Ötztal - and is even currently experiencing a fresh boost thanks to a growing awareness of the value of local production. This is proven, among others, by the Ötztal Sheep Wool Center in Umhausen. The Regensburger family is the third generation to run the business. They process the wool of the mountain and stone sheep that graze in the heights of Tyrol into knitting and beading yarns, into felt material, but above all also into carpets that have been proven to create a pleasant indoor climate and even filter pollutants from the indoor air in a natural way. Directly on site, one can accompany the entire production process: from the delivery of the sheep's wool to the weaving of the carpet.
