SPRING & AUTUMN

Off to the Wiesn! Five reasons to celebrate October firmly in Seefeld

October without Oktoberfest? Unthinkable! But thanks to Corona, it's a reality. So the question remains: What to do without gingerbread hearts, wild mice and Bierzeltrausch? Quite simple: off to Seefeld! The sunny balcony high above the Inn Valley is the best antidote to the no-Oktoberfest depression. Five good reasons to whistle on the Oktoberfest-free city and celebrate October firmly in Seefeld:

Auffi auf'n Berg, or: going steeply without a crash

Traditionally, at the middle of the three Wiesn weekends, thousands of Birra-Tifosi storm Munich's Theresienwiese. At least until 2019. In 2020, the "Italian Weekend" will be cancelled and our hot-blooded friends will remain over the Brenner Pass. Who nevertheless wants to experience Dolce Vita without virus frustration, finds up in Seefeld by far the most beautiful sunny balcony. Golden October with its clear mountain air and mild evenings is the perfect time for a dignified weekend getaway. Because in Seefeld you also go really steep: for example on the 2374 meter high Reither Spitze.

Wellness with chicks instead of Wiesn with hangover

Seefeld's alternative program to the Oktoberfest focuses on a healthy mind in a healthy body. After all, the sporty sunny plateau above Innsbruck is known for its decathlete mentality. On day one: e-biking, hiking, golfing, playing tennis and swimming. And on day two: whirlpooling, Kneipp, saunas, massages and napping. Instead of getting bogged down at the Oktoberfest, take a big sip from the fountain of youth in Seefeld in the fall of 2020. And instead of doing the free swim in the lukewarm lake under the beer bench, one rather takes a seat cultivated in the "beer tub bath". Found at the Hotel Diana.

"O'zapft is!" Or: Respect for those who do it themselves

At the Wies'n, only one person has a license to take the first (and second, and often third) blow: the incumbent mayor. Anyone who wants to tap a keg and shout "O'zapft is!" as a mundane barley-juice tourist will be taken in by security faster than he can burp. The alternative Oktoberfest in Seefeld, on the other hand, is completely different: Here, self-tapping is expressly encouraged. Not in the hellish beer tent hustle and bustle, but in the heavenly Hotel Klosterbräu. More precisely: in the wellness area with the promising name "Sündenkeller". Here you can tap your own cool Helles after the sauna. Without security.

If that's not enough for you: Hotel Klosterbräu also serves specially brewed champagne beer. The best way to try it is at the beer tasting and brewing course in the traditional brewery cellar.

The playlist of Seefeld nature is a bigger catchy tune than "Cordula Grün"

Let's be honest: Most Wiesn hits have to be drunk nicely. At the Oktoberfest around Seefeld, on the other hand, the delicate ossicles are rocked like in a hammock instead of thrashing them with hammer and anvil. Three audio samples from the new summer edition of "Sound of Seefeld": Gentle splashing from the origin of the beloved Isar. A woodpecker drums its way through the forest. And the evening triad of church bell ringing, crickets chirping and cowbell ringing. Every Oktoberfest band can pack it. It's available at Spotify & Co or here.

Time out with home advantage, or: If you are queuing, it's your own fault!

What is guaranteed not to work in the beer tent: arriving the day before to avoid standing in line. What definitely works in Seefeld: Simply arrive a day early and leave a day late to turn a quick short trip to the mountain sun into a relaxing midweek getaway. Without getting stuck in traffic. After all, body and mind need a certain amount of time to throw everyday stress overboard. The higher you climb in the process, the further down the hectic pace and corona garbage stay. Tip: a hearty Weißwurst breakfast at the Rosshütte – 1760 meters above things! This is available in the Rosshütte panorama restaurant daily between 8:30 and 11 am. Also on Hochegg Alm, located further down, there's a Weißwurst breakfast with a magnificent view every day. And if you want to enjoy exactly what the Weißwurst breakfast is all about – sitting in a cozy group and toasting happily – you should definitely go Törggelen in the Ropferstub'm. Here you'll find roast pork and dumplings instead of veal sausage and pretzels, and new wine instead of a pint of beer, but the coziness remains exactly the same.
