Seefeld in Tirol

The name Seefeld in Tirol stands for an important winter resort.

Altitude: 1,200 m asl

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 in 1964 and 1976. Moreover Seefeld hosted the World Cross-Country Skiing Championships in 1985. From 2000-2004 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 five skiing areas with 44 km of slopes, forming the Olympic Region Seefeld ski resort.

Seefeld, located about 20 km from Innsbruck, is a popular starting point for hikes in the surrounding mountains. More than 650 km of hiking paths, fixed rope routes and nordic-walking routes make your holidays varied. Other popular 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 with its swimming pool as well as many 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!
