Sonnenalm

Closed today

The welcoming Sonnenalm (1,500 metres) is located high above Seefeld at the top of the Gschwandtkopf and as well as the unforgettable view from the sun terrace, you can enjoy some delicious traditional Tyrolean dishes there.

Skiers and ski tourers can warm themselves by the crackling fire in the restaurant during the cold winter months (December to April) and in summer (June to October), if you are feeling energetic, it’s possible to get to the Sonnenalm by (e)-bike on a nice wide forest track. After enjoying some tasty local fare, the deck-chairs on the sun terrace are perfect for a short afternoon nap. E-bikers can even recharge their batteries here if they have their own cable.
LOCATION & STARTING POINT
The path to the Sonnenalm is within walking distance of Seefeld’s ICE railway station and the bus terminal or you can take a bus and get off at the stop ‘Haltestelle Talstation Gschwandtkopflift’. There is plenty of parking available at the bottom lift station for anyone arriving by car. You can get up to the mountain restaurant on foot or by (e)-bike on the wide forest track, or you can choose the more comfortable option and take a ride, summer or winter, on the chair-lift up to the Sonnenalm.

SUMMER TOURS

  • To the Sonnenalm. A pretty, pleasant walk from the Congress Centre in Seefeld over the Pfarrhügel (parish hill) to the Sonnenalm at the top of the Gschwandtkopf. Return the same way. For a more panoramic route back, you can return via Mösern – also possible by bike, albeit short and steep.

  • Seefeld circular tour. A picturesque walk at any time year. Start at the small church, the Seekirchl, and go via the Pfarrhügel (parish hill) up to the Sonnenalm. After some well-earned refreshment, head from the Sonnenalm down towards Reith/Auland and back to the bottom station of the old Gschwandtkopf lift. From there walk to Falkenried and the Auländer Mähder to finish at the promenade by the lake, the Wildsee.
