Dog-friendly accommodations

Dogs are very welcome in around 180 accommodations in Sölden and the nearby hamlets of Hochsölden and Zwieselstein.

With your dog on the mountain gondola

Even though the ski slopes are reserved exclusively for two-legged friends on two skis (dogs are strictly forbidden on the slopes due to the risk of injury), four-legged buddies are of course allowed to travel up the mountain on the feeder gondola lifts of Gaislachkogl, Giggijoch and Hochsölden-Rotkogl. Once there, you can choose from worthwhile winter hiking trails, for example from Gaislachkogl’s middle station to Heidealm or along the panorama trail in Hochsölden. Even excursion destinations such as Gaislachkogl summit at over 3000 meters are accessible to pedestrians with dogs and can be reached via Gaislachkogl mountain gondola II.

In Sölden and the immediate vicinity there are almost 50 kilometers of cleared and signposted winter hiking routes that lead you and your four-legged friend through snow-covered forests, winter white meadows and along rushing brooks up into the mountains.
