Whizz across slopes and plateaus on holidays to Seefeld – with views of the alpine countryside.

Life in a snow globe

Seefeld sits pretty on a plateau, sandwiched between the grand peaks of Wetterstein and Karwendel in western Austria. In winter, it looks like your classic snow globe village – but in summer it shakes off the snowbanks and bursts into greenery. Be sure to visit the iconic Seekirchl church tower to soak up the panoramic views.

Nature and a half

Surrounded by three mountains, Seefeld's got natural beauty on tap. Take a cable car to the top of the peaks, or walk through moorlands to Wildsee Lake for a quick dip. If you've had your countryside fix for the day, move on to history in nearby Innsbruck, just a 40-minute train ride away.

Skiing king

A top-notch skiing spot, Seefeld's best known for its standout winter sports scene. The Alpine town's downhill slopes are ideal for beginners and intermediates alike – so the whole family can zip around together. A steaming mug of hot choc afterwards is the best way to warm up.
