Wool & Sheep at the Hotel Bergland

As you arrive at the Hotel Bergland in Sölden, don't be surprised if you hear the sound of sheep bells and a few loud bleats from our friendly four-legged friends.

In fact, you are more likely to see them before you hear them. During the summer months the Ötztal mountain sheep kept by your host Sigi Grüner graze on the high pastures and look forward to your visit!

Balls of wool and sheep skins feature as decorative elements at the Hotel Bergland – an expression of our love of the Ötztal Valley mountains and the sheep who also call this region home.

Lamb's Meat from Sölden

Hotel owner Sigi Grüner is not only a farmer but also an expert sheep breeder.

Delicious lamb's meat dishes often feature on the menu in our à la carte Wine & Dine restaurant and as part of the Gourmet Half-Board at the Hotel Bergland.

Innovation Prize for the Hotel Bergland

On average there are 25 sheep and 40 to 50 lambs grazing on the high pastures around the Hotel Bergland. The love and care given to our sheep has been recognised with a number of awards and prizes.

In 2016, for example, the Hotel Bergland's farm was one of just two sheep farms in Tyrol to be awarded the Innovation Prize by the Austrian Sheep Breeding Association.
