Cuisine on the summit of the Gaislachkogl

In 2013 in the hotspot of the Alps a new, breath-taking location opened – der ice Q. An architectural landmark. Luxury hideaway with panoramic views. And a gourmet venue, 3048 metres above sea level.

Style and panoramic views. Contemporary and timelessly beautiful. Ice Q inspires even on the first encounter – and offers culinary experiences which you remember forever.

In one of the most spectacular buildings in the Alpine area even James Bond found a place – featuring in the film ‚SPECTRE‘. Like a sparkling gem, pure and sparkling, ice Q is situated beneath the sunshine on the Gaislachkogl in Sölden – and its glass facade provides open views to an astonishing mountain backdrop and an alpine winter experience. The splendour of the Ötztal Alps is just not as impressive anywhere else as it is here.

The architecture of ice Q

A landmark with views into the distance

900 m² glass facade. An expression of what is pure. Fine character. The ice Q gourmet temple embodies contemporary alpine lifestyle in the most luxurious manner – in a technical point of view too. The steel-glass construction of ice Q was built upon Permafrost and on adjustable and sliding foundations. The 4.5 million Euro project, created by well-known architecture office Obermoser, is a continuation of the Gaislachkoglbahn built in 2010, which, in just 12 minutes, takes you from 1363 metres, all the way up to 3000 metres.

James Bond. SPECTRE.

Adrenaline-packed. Action-packed. Breath-taking. James Bond and the Ötztal Alps have a great deal in common. And now too on cinema screens. Between December 2014 and February 2015 the skiing paradise in Sölden in Austria transforms, to become one of the ‘fantastic places’ for the new James Bond blockbuster „SPECTRE“. Director Sam Mendes chose the hot spot of the Alps himself – and thereby took James Bond „back to the Alps and back to the snow“.
