Felix Kupfer: Gurgl Carat was built exactly where the Piccardsaal hall could be found for 30 years. It was also an event center, but there was only room for 250 people. In the new conference center we can now offer space for up to 500 guests taking part in congresses, conferences, seminars and meetings. We are equipped with the latest technology and at the same time we have this awe-inspiring natural environment and such a majestic mountain backdrop.
Our shareholders - Ötztal Tourismus, the municipality of Sölden and the University of Innsbruck - see great potential here: the tourism association wants to stimulate summer tourism and extend the season to year-round occupancy thanks to Gurgl Carat. Furthermore, the university is investing in the “Gurgl science location” in order to upgrade the local university branch and its Alpine Research Center. The community has thus created an attractive event center for the entire population. We owe it to all these interests that we can now offer the top quality Gurgl Carat congress center for guests from home and abroad.
