Top things to See and Do in Söll
Ahornsee in Söll
In the centre of the village you’ll find the Ahornsee bathing lake. It reaches depths of 11m and spans 10,000m², which is quite small compared to other lakes in the area. It’s a pretty spot to cool off in the summer sun.
Ahornsee lake is sandwiched between the Wilder Kaiser mountains and the Hohe Salve. Aside from being picture-perfect, the bathing lake blends relaxation with fun – in the form of a diving board. In winter, the lake serves as a snow-making reservoir for Hochsöll.
Relax by the water
This bathing lake has four jetties, shower areas, a children’s play space, refreshment kiosk and deckchairs with parasols. It’s great for a laid-back day by the water, whether you’re visiting with family or friends, or are just looking for a peaceful dip after a hike.
For some local bargains, don't miss the Z'sammkemma on Wednesdays. It's a market and festive evening rolled into one, so you can try some food specialities and browse the stalls of craftsmen who come to present their work.
Söll has a smattering of sports shops where you can find a mix of activewear and casual gear.
As Söll is pedestrianised, pottering around on foot is a wonderful way to spend a quiet evening – window-shop, people-watch and snap some evening holiday photos.
Immerse yourself in traditional Austrian culture at the village Tyrolean evening. It takes place on Thursday evenings at 8.30pm, and offers a fun night of yodelling, Tyrolean music and folk dancing.
Söll is proud of the local ingredients – like honey, cheese, milk and even schnapps – that originate from the numerous local farmers in the area. From these ingredients, delicious specialities like the sweet germknödel with poppy seeds and butter are born – definitely a must-have while you're here. When it comes to eating out, you’ll find everything from small, casual eateries to fine-dining restaurants dotted around the resort, and even a couple of huts up in the mountains.
Double choice at Gastof Hochsoll
At the top of the main gondola is Gastof Hochsoll, a mountain restaurant with incredible views from its large outdoor terrace. Half the restaurant is self-service, while the other has table service – but both offer local favourites and homely classics.
Lively meals at Auf da Muhle
In the centre of town is the popular Auf da Muhle, a large restaurant with excellent steaks and pizza and a lively atmosphere. There’s a large bull on the wall outside, if you need help finding it.
International offerings at Schindelhaus
Just down the road is Schindelhaus, a popular and reasonably priced restaurant offering international cuisine. Whether it’s a burger or calzone, you’re guaranteed to receive some top-notch nosh.
