Austria, Austrian Tyrol
The village of Söll lies in a lovely open valley between the majestic Wild Emperor and Hohe Salve mountains. Midway between Innsbruck and Salzburg, it is ideally situated for a wide range of excursions and is a well-established walking area. With untouched nature and fresh mountain air it is the perfect alpine setting in which to relax and explore the region. In summer Söll boasts a multitude of attractions, including the Ahornsee lake, the Hexenwasser water adventure park for children and the Moorsee lake. There are regular village festivals, folklore and live music evenings during high season in the village, and a programme of evening entertainment is also arranged by your Inghams Representative.
September (16-30) is when the villages in the Tyrol celebrate the annual ‘Almabtrieb’. The festival celebrates the end of the summer when the cows are led down the mountain to their stables for the winter. Cowbells echo through the valley as hundreds of cows pass by, all highly decorated in traditional costume. You’ll be welcome to join in the festivities!
Two centres | Combine your stay in Söll with 3, 4 or 7 nights in another resort in Austria. We recommend St. Gilgen.

Marvel at the richly decorated interior and the stunning grounds all modeled on the Palace of Versailles. A fascinating insight into the world of a truly eccentric King.
