The largest municipality of Austria is located in the Oetztal Alps: The Leisure Arena Sölden provides relaxation and well-being

Altitude: 1,377 m a.s.l.

The name of Sölden derives from "selda", which is the smallest rural property. The component localities Sölden, Hochsölden, Zwieselstein, Gurgl, Heiligkreuz, Vent and different other hamlets belong to the municipal area, the popular holiday area of Sölden, which reaches up to the border of South Tyrol in Italy. It is represented by the 2,474 m high Timmelsjoch mountain pass.

On the southern end of the village you'll find the cable car taking you on Mt. Gaislachkogl (3,058 m a.s.l.). A network of hiking trails and fixed-rope routes lead right into the heart of the alpine world - also Oetzi might have wanted to cross in the world of these mountains about 5,300 years ago. In this breathtaking scenery you can also enjoy destinations such as the "Almzeit" theme trail and the famous Bike Republic Sölden, a cycling network including natural trails and ecologically built lines.

In winter, Sölden turns into a winter sports paradise. A part of the Sölden Skiing Area is glacial skiing area on the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach Glaciers, open until May, the other part is open during the cold months of the year and is also used for Alpine Ski World Cup races. Besides best skiing conditions for skiing and snowboarding, here you'll find two further highlights: the spectacular BIG3 viewing platform, and the "007 Elements" inside the Gaislachkogl mountain, a cinematic installation dedicated to the James Bond movie "Spectre" and the location of Sölden.
