Seefeld

Seefeld is an exceptional, all-round destination for a winter break. Enjoyable, laid -back skiing in alpine terrain at 1200m above sea level with spacious pistes and state-of-the-art lift facilities. The extensive cross-country trails through absolutely gorgeous mountain scenery means the cross-country skiing in Seefeld is possibly the best Austria has to offer.

The winter walking is exceptional too. There are 142km of cleared hiking trails around Seefeld which take you through idyllic plateaus, tranquil forests and stunning river valleys – a veritable winter wonderland. And we haven’t even mentioned the downhill skiing yet!

Seefeld’s place in the history of skiing was assured when local ski instructor, and two-time World Championship slalom winner, Toni Seelos invented the parallel turn. Today, the wealth of blue runs makes this an excellent destination for beginner skiers.

Things to do in resort

Restaurants, food and drink

Anyone familiar with Austrian food will be well aware of how hearty and full of flavour it can be – a perfect accompaniment to a day spent skiing. Seefeld has a wealth of restaurants serving the full range of delicious, traditional Austrian dishes. One of our personal favourites is the Südtiroler Stube, located in the heart of the village near the village square. Serving sophisticated Tirolean cuisine in classic Stube surroundings, the restaurant has a delightful atmosphere.

The Wildmoos Alm is an on-the-mountain favorite, famous for its strudel trolley and charming and friendly staff. It is a must visit for many regular guests to Seefeld and popular with us for its range of schnapps and strudel. We also recommend the Sportalm at the bottom of Gschwandkopft, well known for its chicken and chips in a basket.

Aprés, bars, clubs, and nightlife

Seefeld has an excellent range of bars for the aprés connoisseurs out there. For those of you looking to sample the local tipple, we suggest you head to Beisl Bar. This cosy pub in the centre of town serves a range of local schnapps.

If sipping a gin and tonic is more your thing, then Woods Bar by the cross-country tracks and ice rink provides a chilled environment in which to enjoy your drink. Head there every Friday and Saturday for live DJ music. The open-air Snowbar on Geigenbulle is a great place to unwind. An open fire heats up the bar from around 4pm and the ambience is complimented by local music. The bar offers snow rafting every Monday and Wednesday.

Shopping 

The pedestrianised town centre is especially good for visitors to Seefeld who would prefer to spend their day shopping rather than hitting the slopes. There are plenty of souvenir shops as well as sports shops making it easy to rent any ski equipment you might require. The beautiful city of Innsbruck is only 30 minutes away by train and has a plethora of shops ranging from exclusively Christmas themed souvenirs to luxury boutiques.

Shops are open Monday to Saturday between 10am–1pm and 2pm–6pm while supermarkets stay open longer, from 8am–6pm and on Sunday mornings.

Spas and relaxation

With many of the hotels in Seefeld offering spa facilities, you can be assured of a relaxing winter break when you visit. The Krumers Post and Spa Hotel provides a fantastic 2,200m2 spa area which even includes a panoramic indoor pool. Should your hotel not provide you with the spa facilities you require you should head to the Olympia Sports Centre. Not only does this come complete with indoor and outdoor pools and water slides, there are over 10 different types of sauna and treatment rooms available for guests to take advantage of.

Arts, culture, and events

Seefeld has a jam-packed schedule of winter events, from concerts and live music performances to competitive sports. Seefeld hosts regular cross-country ski races as well as other winter sports tournaments, including championship snow polo which, with its riders on horseback, makes for an exciting spectacle.

The Seefelder Schneefest der Nationen – or ‘Snow Festival of the Nations’ is a magical event hosted every year. Sculpture students from across the local region transform huge, 3m x 3m blocks of ice into spectacularly carved creations. During the night the statues are lit-up, giving them an ethereal appearance much loved by adults and children alike. The sculptures are complimented by music performances and an evening light parade with costumed fire blowers and women on stilts.

Seefeld has a rich history particularly as a site of pilgrimage. The village became a sacred destination during the 14th century after the ‘Host Miracle’ in which the ground opened up in the middle of a church service, swallowing a knight in punishment for his greed. A monastery was built in 1516 to accommodate the many pilgrims. But today you are much more likely to find skiers than religious pilgrims, and what remains of the monastery has become a local hotel.

Inghams offers a full programme of après-ski events and resort activities during your Seefeld ski holiday. All of which can be booked locally by speaking to your Inghams representative.

Winter walking and snow-shoeing

Winter walking is a way of life in Seefeld and a popular activity for the many visitors the village receives during the snowy months of the year. There are approximately 142km of hiking trails available. We’d highly recommend the walk to the Wildmoos Alm which takes you through beautiful countryside. You can reward yourself at the end of your trek with one of the tastiest strudels on the mountains. All varieties of walking are catered from Nordic walking to llama trekking. Snow-shoeing is a popular past-time and snow-shoes can be hired locally. There are even candle-lit walks for those of you who fancy a romantic night-time stroll.

Bowling

A great evening of fun with your reps – every week in Seefeld Inghams hosts an Austrian Skittles evening. This is bowling with a difference and a free shot is awarded for every strike (this gets rapidly harder as the evening progresses). The evening lasts for about 2 hours and costs about €12 per person. You can also privately hire a lane at the bowling alley. This cost approximately €30 per lane and in high season the venue is open every day except Saturday and Sunday.

Horse-drawn sleigh rides

Horse-drawn sleigh rides around the Wildesee lake are one of the most popular non-ski activities for visitors to Seefeld. It is a romantic way to explore this beautiful winter wonderland. Visitors can book this experience locally which costs around €16 per passenger on a 45-minute sleigh ride.

Neuschwanstein Castle

This fantastic guided trip into Bavaria in Germany to see the famous castle of Mad King Ludwig is well worth participating in. The castle has a starring role in the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and is an icon of fairy-tale, castle design. The excursion also stops at Oberammergau the site of the famous Passion Play. The trip lasts from 08.30am until 04.30pm and costs approximately €39 per person. Entry to castle is not included.

Sightseeing in Innsbruck

The main line from Munich to Innsbruck passes through Seefeld and the train station is located directly in the centre of town. With a journey time of 2 hours 15 minutes Munich can be visited on a long day trip but visiting Innsbruck is really easy. The journey only takes 40 minutes and the trains run hourly. We recommend sitting on the right-hand side of the train towards Innsbruck to witness spectacular views down across the Inn Valley.

Gizzi's Children's Club is a  Snow Kindergarten for children aged 3-5yrs, Mon-Fri with 2 h per day ski tuition plus optional lunch supervision.
