The Olympic Region Seefeld in Tirol, including the five localities Leutasch, Mösern-Buchen, Reith, Scharnitz and Seefeld, has become popular due to the fact that it had twice been venue for Olympic Winter Games - the competitions in the nordic disciplines were held in Seefeld in 1964 and 1976. Moreover Seefeld hosted the World Cross-Country Skiing Championships. In 2000 and 2004 this locality was venue for the “Air & Style Snowboard Contest” and in 2008 a FIS World Cup race in alpine skiing was staged in Seefeld in Tirol. However, winter vacationers will enjoy skiing in four different skiing areas: Rosshütte, Geigenbühellift, Birkenlift and Gschwandtkopf, which offer top-level skiing conditions.
Seefeld in Tirol, located about 20 km from Innsbruck, is a popular starting point for hikes in the surrounding mountains. More than 450 km of hiking paths and fixed rope routes as well as 266 km of nordic-walking routes make your holidays varied. Other popular and recommended hiking destinations are the natural reserve Reither Moor and Lake Wildsee, which invites you to make a jump into the cool waters. However, if you would like to spend a day with your family, we recommend you to go to the Oetzihütte lodge, which features a zoo as well as a spacious children’s playground. This is where your little ones can enjoy themselves, while you get acquainted with local cuisine!
Regarding leisure time activities, there is also a 18-hole golf course located in the protected landscape of Wildmoos. Furthermore there is the Olympia sports & congress centre Seefeld as well as 28 tennis courts in the surroundings. In the evenings Seefeld becomes a lively centre, also thanks to the casino, which is not only famous in Austria.
Our recommendation: visit the Seekirchl church located at the entrance of the village. This church is considered to be the symbol of the village. Blue sky, snow-capped mountain peaks, lush alpine pastures covered by alpine flowers and in the heart of this fairytale-like landscape the white church - a real must-see!
