Seefeld Region

A winter wonderland for cross-country skiing enthusiasts, the Seefeld plateau and its many pretty villages offer perfect snow conditions and plenty of sunshine. The region hosted the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2019.

Situated on a sunny high plateau between the Mieminger Mountains, the Karwendel Nature Park and the Wetterstein Mountains, Seefeld has a special micro-climate which gives it thick snow cover and protection from the warm Föhn wind. This makes it popular with skiers and in particular cross-country skiers, who enjoy exploring the area’s large network of trails. The village was used for the Nordic disciplines when Innsbruck hosted the Olympic Games in 1964 and 1976. It has also hosted the Nordic World Ski Championships once and often welcomes the international elite as part of the World Cup. In 2019 Seefeld hosted the Nordic World Ski Championships for the second time in its history, with its high density of four-star and five-star hotels playing an important role in the winning bid.

Summer: electric bikes, castle ruins and swimming lakes

Seefeld’s attractions are by no means restricted to winter. In summer it draws many visitors thanks to its many mountain bike and hiking trails. One of the most popular walks in the region is the easy Three Lake Trail from Seefeld, which takes in three idyllic swimming lakes: Möserer See, Lottensee and Wildmoos-See. Guests interested in history can visit the Fragenstein castle ruins near Zirl and walk back through the impressive Schlossbachklamm canyon, including a section crossing underneath a railway bridge used by trains running between Innsbruck and Seefeld. Cyclists who want to take it easy will find more than 90 electric bikes available for hire at about 20 stations in the region. There are also two 18-hole golf courses in the area, one in Seefeld-Wildmoos and one in Seefeld-Reith.
