Seefeld in Tirol, to everyone simply Seefeld, is a pretty Alpine village a few kilometres from Innsbruck. It has a resident population of about 3,000, but in both summer and winter there are many more tourists, as Seefeld is one of the most popular resorts in the whole of Austria.

Seefeld is the heart of a holiday region in Tyrol where spending the day outdoors is imperative. In summer, for walking in the surrounding area, among meadows, lakes and Alpine peaks, and in winter, of course, for skiing, either on the downhill slopes or on the cross-country trails. There are also several things to visit in the surrounding area, including churches and ancient monuments, so Seefeld can be chosen as a base for sleeping and exploring the area during the day.

Well connected to the rest of Tyrol by three bus routes and a railway line, Seefeld is also close to Innsbruck International Airport, from which it is only 20 kilometres away. This charming town is also part of the Best of the Alps community, which includes the 12 most beautiful villages in the Alps.

What to do in Seefeld

Seefeld is a summer and winter holiday destination, so every type of traveller will find something interesting to do, to spend wonderful days relaxing and enjoying outdoor activities.

Cross-country skiing

Due to its location on a high plateau at an altitude of 1,200 metres, Seefeld in Tirol is ideal for cross-country skiing, so much so that it has hosted the world championships in this discipline several times, most recently in 2012. There are 245 kilometres of cross-country skiing trails in Seefeld, of varying degrees of difficulty and for all needs: there are floodlit night runs, cross-country dog trails, and toboggan runs. There is even the Loipenrettung cross-country trail rescue service, unique in the world, which started in 2013.

Alpine skiing

The Harmelekopf resort in Rosshutte

If you find cross-country skiing monotonous and tiring, in Seefeld you can ski down its wide slopes, ideal for beginners and advanced skiers, with magnificent views and excellent weather conditions. Seefeld is in the centre of the Olympiaregion, which consists of five ski areas: Rosshutte, Gschwandtkopf, Hochmoos, Geigenbuhel and Neuleutasch. Of these, those adjacent to Seefeld are the first two, which are connected by a free ski bus service.

Olympia-Erlebnisbad Seefeld

The Olympia-Erlebnisbad Seefeld is a state-of-the-art facility that combines a sports centre and a conference centre. Inside is a splendid indoor pool, equipped with a children’s slide, a 110-metre-long water slide for adults, and an adrenaline-filled water playground called the Wildwasser canyon, which is a full 140 metres long. Outside, the 34-degree heated swimming pool is on display, alongside a large play and relaxation area.

In addition, there is a spa area with sauna, covering an area of 2,000 square metres, the highlight of which is the splendid Blue Grotto, a pool with waterfall, steam bath and three Finnish saunas. A restaurant serving local and international cuisine completes the picture at Olympia-Erlebnisbad Seefeld.

Wildsee Lake

Seefeld takes its name from the words See (lake) and Feld (field); the lake referred to is Wildsee, a body of water located at the southern end of the town, on whose southern shore there is a nature conservation area.

In summer, the Wildsee lake is ideal for spending wonderful days of relaxation: it is possible to sunbathe in one of the two bathing establishments Strandperle and Waldschwimmbad and even swim, with a water temperature of around 20 degrees. For the locals this is ideal, but if you find it too cold, the Strandperle also has a heated outdoor pool.

Seefeld Way of the Cross

In 2000, architect Michael Prachensky and Seefeld parish priest Egon Pfeifer had the idea of building an open-air Stations of the Cross , with the 14 stations represented by as many large boulders. In 2004, their vision finally became reality, and today the Seefeld Way of the Cross is one of the most unique, and at the same time most popular, religious routes in Austria.

Starting from the town parish, the path climbs up to the top of the Pfarrhügel hill, station by station, until it reaches the last one, where the 12 apostles are depicted with as many rock blocks, ideally placed next to Jesus’ tomb. Before starting the trail, you can pick up information and meditation brochures in the parish church, created by the parish priest Egon Pfeifer, to help you approach the trail in the right spirit.

Where to stay in Seefeld

Seefeld in Tirol can be traversed from north to south in 20 minutes on foot, so you can choose to sleep almost anywhere, but with a few suggestions depending on the season of your holiday.

In summer, it is pleasant to sleep around the Wildsee lake, i.e. in the southern part, where there are some hotels and flats. In winter, on the other hand, you can consider choosing a hotel near the ski lifts, so that you can leave and return to your hotel on skis, without having to take your car. In both seasons, choosing to sleep in the town centre means finally staying close to all services such as shops, banks, supermarkets and pharmacies.
