Over a good ten kilometers, this leisurely circular hike makes a scenic loop around the Seefelder Gschwandtkopf and rewards you along the way through the Möserer Tal and the Reither Auland with impressive Inntal views and picturesque power spots.

From the starting point at Seefeld train station, head west along Klosterstraße through the historic pedestrian zone. Cross the traffic circle in the direction of Seekirchl, past the Seefeld Olympic pool and follow the underpass to the Sportalm on the Gschwandtkopf - first stop for refreshments! 

Then turn left past the Sportalm and the sports field, follow the path through the Seefeld Sports Arena. After the sports field, continue walking in ascending serpentines along the so-called summer trail through the Seewald forest. At the next clearing, on the right hand side, far below the hiking trail, you will find the cozy Seewaldalm - open only in winter. Continue along the hiking trail to the foot of the Gschwandtkopf and then follow the signs to Auland on the left. On the way you can climb to the Sonnenalm and Edelhütte - restaurant and lodge at the Gschwandtkopf.

On the Gschwandtkopfweg you finally reach the Auland and take the first left onto the Gstoagweg, now follow this until you can already see the Wildsee sparkling in the distance. At the fork in the road, take the forest path to the Wildsee promenade (Gschwandtweg). There you will often meet a few lively squirrels and can enjoy the forest atmosphere in quiet recreation areas.

At the main road then turn right and follow Innsbrucker Straße into the pedestrian zone and on to the starting point. A final walk through the cozy town center rewards with nice shopping, delicious culinary and many other sights.
