2. Around Seefeld’s Wildsee lake to the Gschwandtkopf chairlift

A moderately difficult hike around Seefeld’s lake that offers variety thanks to the inclusion of a detour to the bottom station of the Gschwandtkopf chairlift.

Trail width: Approx. 0.9 m at the narrowest point
Obstacles: Short climb after around 1 km, camber at km 1.5, stones up to tennis-ball size on the section between km 1 and 2.5.

Weather-dependent accessibility: With the exception of when snow is lying, accessible at all times.
Suitable for: Fit paraplegics without assistance. Owing to the trail’s surface, which is bumpy in places along a 1.5 km section, the route is less suitable for quadriplegics.
Time required: 2 hours                                                                 
Route distance: Approx 3.1 km
Route description: Access at the Strandperle/swimming pool – turn right – follow the edge of the lake in the direction of Seefeld – continue along the lakeshore for 1 km, then follow the signs towards Reith – after around 1.6 km turn right and ascend up to the Gschwandtkopf chairlift – return to the lake.
Public car parking: At the lake/swimming pool, Seefeld                     
Tip for a refreshment stop: Gschwandtkopf chairlift bottom station: Easily accessible terrace and tavern, WC accessible via a small step around 10 cm high. Door to the men’s WC is too narrow; door to the ladies’ WC is wide enough but the door opens inwards.

3.  Seefeld - Mösern

Easy hike in the Seefeld area with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and the Seefeld Plateau. A few relatively short climbs make the route more varied and interesting. The route is suitable for wheelchairs even when covered in snow.

Trail width: Approx. 1.2 m at the narrowest point
Obstacles: None
Trail/path surface: approx. 50% tarmac, 50% hard-packed gravel and forest trail

Route description: Starting from Hotel Central in the pedestrian zone, head towards to the sports centre – walking trail towards the Seekapelle chapel – in the direction of Sportalm, ski jump – after around 1.2 km turn right towards the main road – cross the main road – take the uphill trail to your right – you come to a fork at km 1.2 (both directions are ok) – one route leads to the path that runs beneath the Seekirchl chapel, the other descends towards the Seekirchl and back to the pedestrian zone. Those who want to extend the hike can, instead of ascending up to the right after crossing the main road, turn left towards Mösern.

Extra tips: In and around Seefeld you can enjoy a wide spectrum of leisure pursuits, both in summer and in winter – from the Funpark in Leutasch to the lake in Seefeld, from various skiing options to the region’s vast network of cross-country ski tracks (Olympic routes).
