Seefeld has designated pedestrian districts where visitors and locals alike can stroll around the town centre at their own pace. These include the Dorfplatz, Klosterstrasse and Bahnhofstrasse - all with an array of shops, restaurants and bars.
The station is a 1-minute walk from the town centre on the Bahnhofplatz 115. You can catch a train to Innsbruck in 40 minutes, departing every half an hour, or to Mittenwald in 20 minutes, departing every 1-2 hours.
You can catch buses to a range of towns from the main bus station which is situated next to the train station. They run to towns like Reith, Leutasch and Leithen. There’s also a free hop-on-hop-off shuttle service leaving every 20 minutes and making stops around the resort.
A variety of lifts are open during the summer to help you explore the mountains including the Funicular Railway, the Seefelder Joch Cable Car and the Harmelekopfbahn, all operating every 15 minutes. They are open between 9am-5pm every day from the end of May until the end of October.

Austrian cuisine is the main focal point in Seefeld. You'll find Austrian pubs, delicatessens and fine-dining restaurants with prices to suit every budget. You can settle down for a meal or a glass of wine around Lake Wildsee and watch the sun set on the water, or discover mountain huts serving coffee and cake thousands of metres above sea level.
Along the Klosterstrasse is the Plangger Delikatessen, a contemporary deli serving light lunches and wine in the beautiful centre of Seefeld. The popular choice is the Tiroler Teller platter consisting of different hams, breads and cheeses. And if anything tickles your fancy, you can buy some to take home with you.
Opposite the train station is the small and traditional Elizabeth’s Bar. With reasonably priced food, scrumptious Tiroler Gröstl and a beer garden to enjoy during the summer months, it’s a great place to stop for lunch.
On the Wildmoos plateau at 1300m (as high as Ben Nevis) is the crazy Wildmoos Alm. Known for its entertaining owner Walter, its food and its schnapps fountain, every day is a party. Energetic staff and quirky interiors make this restaurant a memorable experience for all.
Walking in Seefeld is incredibly diverse, so you can make it as easy or as difficult as you want. There are 650km of trails, ranging from lakeside walks to high alpine routes. Take a gentle stroll to Lake Wildsee for beautiful views of the town and mountains, or go further, through forests and meadows, to discover Seefeld’s three sparkling lakes. The Gschwandtkopf and Rosshütte lifts are waiting to whisk you to the peaks for access to picturesque rambles – and you simply can’t miss taking a ride on the Rosshütte funicular and wandering back along the woodland track.
This is one of Seefeld’s most popular walks – and it’s easy to see why. Follow the scenic route to Lake Möserer See, one of the Tyrol’s warmest lakes, where you can go for a dip and enjoy some lunch at the Möser Seestub’n. Then carry on to your second lake, the Lottensee, and finally to the Wildmoos-See. Reward your efforts with mouthwatering apple strudel at the Wildmoosalm restaurant – the perfect ending to the day.
Auland bee trail
Learn more about the area and local beekeeping on this gentle walk. You’ll need to take the bus to the Reith tourist information office, and then follow route 14, the Path of Bees, back towards Seefeld. Look out for information boards along the pretty wooded trail, to read about the lives of bees. You can also take the walk with a local apiculturist, to find out more and even see the bee hotel.
Leutasch Spirit Gorge
Discover the beauty and power of nature, which carved the Leutasch Gorge out of this stunning landscape. This flat route winds through the gorge and across a metal walkway, where you can really feel the contrast between the solid rocks and the rushing water. The area is also steeped in folklore, so look out for goblins and spirits on the way. When you reach Mittenwald, you can circle back through the gorge or catch the train back to Seefeld.
