On a sun-drenched, south-facing plateau, at an altitude of 1,200 metres above sea level, the Region Seefeld boasts a spectacular location surrounded by the Karwendel Nature Park, the Wildmoos nature protection area, the majestic Wetterstein massif and Hohe Munde mountain. A holiday destination steeped in tradition, the Region Seefeld comprises five villages – Mösern-Buchen, Scharnitz, Reith, Leutasch and Seefeld – and offers a vast area for walking and hiking amid a stunning, pristine natural landscape.

You can walk and hike in Tyrol at all times of the year. As a year-round holiday destination, the region offers the opportunity to explore its vast network of trails and paths both in summer and winter. During the summer months, the area has more than 650 kilometres of marked walking, hiking and climbing routes that offer outdoor enthusiasts the chance to explore the breathtaking natural surroundings. The paths and trails are categorised into varying levels of difficulty according to length and elevation gain/loss and signposted accordingly. In addition, barrier-free trails have been created for people with walking difficulties and small children. More than 60 mountain farmhouses and huts offer idyllic stops during a hike, where you can rest and enjoy a refreshing drink and mouth-watering local specialities.
Unique in Tyrol, and indeed in the entire Alpine region, are the wide, flat, barrier-free ‘Promenade Walking Trails’ which can also be used for winter hiking. They offer ideal conditions for longer hikes or leisurely strolls through the glittering, snow-covered landscape. A new highlight in the region is the set of three themed trails, which attract countless walking enthusiasts and families, taking them on journeys of discovery through the scenic mountain landscape. The three trails come together to form a star shape at the summit viewpoint on the Brunschkopf mountain. Starting points of the themed tracks are the villages of Seefeld, Leutasch and Mösern. Picturesque walking routes also lead to the region’s secluded natural bathing lakes. The Möserer See lake, one of Tyrol’s warmest lakes, and the Lottensee and Wildmoossee lakes are perfect for a refreshing dip, or for simply lazing and relaxing.
‘Discover the Region Seefeld – the GREAT OUTDOORS is waiting for YOU!’ In keeping with this motto, the Region Seefeld’s new summer season programme offers a wealth of summer holiday experiences in the form of themed walks and hikes. With such tours as ‘Experience nature with all your senses’, ‘Meditative hike’, ‘Nature watch in the Karwendel Gorge’ and ‘Surprise trekking tour’ on the agenda, a fascinating and enjoyable break amid the region’s pristine countryside is guaranteed.
A particularly memorable experience is offered by a hiking tour in the Karwendel Nature Park, Austria’s largest Alpine reserve. From gentler walks to the mountain pastures and huts, to challenging summit tours and long-distance hikes, the area boasts unspoilt natural scenery, spectacular panoramic vistas and a vast network of paths and trails.
In recognition of its excellent sign-posting system and its efforts to reduce risks in hazardous spots along its mountain tracks and hiking trails, the Region Seefeld was awarded the coveted sSeal of Quality by the Tyrolean government.
The Region Seefeld is a member of the Austrian hiking villages and is therefore subject to high quality requirements.
