So what's it like?
Seefeld is a great base for an Austrian adventure - set on a sunny plateau surrounded by three different mountain ranges. You’ll love the views and we don’t blame you.
Seefeld was once an old trade route between Bavaria in the north and the Tirol in the south – so it’s really easy to get out and explore the wider region. Local trains can take you over the German border to nearby Mittenwald, while Innsbruck is only a 20 minute ride away.
Back in the village, daytimes are great for window shopping and wandering through the pedestrian district. In the evenings you could try your luck in the casino or simply enjoy a get-together at one of Seefeld’s bars or restaurants.
Out and about - Seefeld and the Olympiaregion is a walker’s paradise with 650 km of hiking trails. Gentle rolling hills covered in pretty Alpine flowers and the challenging mountains give you loads of different options and reasons for stretching your legs. And the nearby villages of Reith, Mösern and Leutasch are great spots to grab a bite for lunch along the way.
There are countless lakes in the region, including Wildsee and Möserersee which you can even take a dip in. If you prefer though there’s the lakeside heated outdoor pool of Strandperle with great views over the lake. Golfers have two courses to choose from including the 18-hole Seefeld-Wildmoos championship course.
Keep an eye out for the many events happening throughout the summer in Seefeld including the Seefeld Flower Parade on the first Saturday of August.
With the Olympiaregion Seefeld Card (that you receive free from your hotel) you’ll benefit from reductions on local bus fares, entrances to attractions, cable cars, leisure facilities, mountain bike rental and golf course green fees.
Get the most out of Seefeld with the Seefeld Discovery Package. Stay in Seefeld at either Hotel Kaltschmid or Hotel Bergland and explore the Olympiaregion and beyond. The package includes a trip to Germany to visit Neuschwanstein’s fairytale castle and home of the passion plays Oberammergau. You’ll also have a chance to stop off at the beautiful lakeside town of Achensee and take a trip up the Ötz Valley to the glacier.
