From the church you can easily reach the Wildsee, a picturesque lake fed by spring water, surrounded by woods inhabited by squirrels, claryxets, reeds and rushes which constitute the hiding place of wild geese and other aquatic birds. On the southern shore of the lake there is the protected area of Reither Moor, scented with rosemary, sundew, blueberries and mountain pines.

Two overlook the lake lidi, which allow you to take refreshing baths but also have fun on the beach volleyball court, without forgetting the presence of a play area for children and a heated swimming pool. In this regard, we cannot forget the internal and external tanks of the Olympia Sports and Conference Centre, where there is no shortage of opportunities to relax with saunas, hydromassages, Kneipp paths and water games.

Who loves the golf, you can play at the 18-hole Seefeld-Wildmoos golf course or the 9-hole Goldacademy golf course: the common denominator is the Alpine panorama that frames these splendid sports areas.

In Seefeld in Tirol there is no shortage of opportunities to get to know the local culture, as demonstrated by the presence of Museum of Mountain Farmers , Nostalgic exhibition on the Olympics within the Panoramarestaurant Rosshütte, located at 1750 m. high: many objects and documents recall the two winter editions of the Olympic Games, 1964 and 1976. It is a very scenic place, from which you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Karwendel and Wetterstein mountains: next to the building you there is also a children's play area with a mining theme.

If during the day you hear chimes echoing in the Inn Valley, well it is nothing other than the Peace Bell in the neighbourhood Mösern, which is played every day at 17pm sharp. It can be reached by following a path immersed in silence that invites contemplation and represents peace throughout the Alpine area and collaboration between nations.

Equally beautiful and challenging are the mountain bike routes on the Zugspitze or the stages of the Tyrol Mountain Bike Safari such as the Leermos-Seefeld or the Seefeld-Fulpmes, which respectively cross the Gaistal Valley and the Inntal. The Tillfussalm bike tour instead allows you to cycle towards the mountain hut of the same name, where the writer Ludwig Ganghofer loved to stop.

What to do and what to see

The mountains in summer invite you to take part in hiking excursions in uncontaminated nature and in Seefeld in Tirol the opportunities are many, given the presence of many naturalistic jewels waiting to be discovered, from the lake Rosshutte al Brunschkopf, where there is a wooden viewing platform at 1510 m. high with a view of the Hohe Munde and the Wetterstein peaks.

The walk is very easy and suitable for the whole family Kreuzweg-Wildsee, which turns out to be a real Via Crucis that starts from the Parish Church of Seefeld in Tirol: the destination is the Pfarrhügel hill and during the journey you come across numerous erratic boulders representing the Apostles, depicting some moments of the Passion of Christ, i.e. the Last Supper and the Burial of Jesus. The excursion also allows you to take a tour of the Wildsee lake and visit the Reither Moor peat bog, declared a nature reserve in 1975.

From the tennis court in Seefeld in Tirol wall the 3 Lakes excursion, via path no. 2 which first leads to Lake Mösern, passing through the Gasthof Mentlhof and the Pirschsteig via ferrata. We then continue towards Wildmoos, a plateau at 1320 m. high where the Wildmoos See and Lottensee lakes are surrounded by larch and birch forests: these are two lake mirrors that form in spring when a perfect combination is created between the thaw and the rains that feed the underground karst systems.

The excursion that leads to it is very pleasant Wildmoosalm hut, one of the most picturesque mountain huts in all of Tyrol: the route starts from the parking lot of the Olympiahalle sports hall and passes through the Kirchwald church forest and across large marshy meadows. Near the mountain hut it is also possible to see a small lake, which however forms occasionally: according to the local farmers, its formation depends on the more or less snowy winters.

It is difficult but very satisfying the Seefeldr Spitze hike, i.e. the most famous route that leads to the discovery of the imperial peaks of the Austrian Alps.

It is worth reaching the splendid town of Seefeld in Tirol Mittenwald, defined by Goethe “lively picture book”, due to the presence of frescoed houses that characterize the center of this Tyrolean village. Among all the buildings, one cannot fail to appreciate the old Zur Post hotel and the Rococo-style Church of St. Peter and Paul, with red frescoes on the walls.

From Mittenwal, where the Museum dedicated to the ancient art of luthiers is also worth a visit, you can reach the Leutascher Geisterklamm Gorge: also known as Gola degli Spiriti, due to the legend that it is populated by elves and gnomes, it is 3 km long and is crossed by a thunderous torrent.

The rocky walls that enclose it are high and impervious and are flanked by a suspended platform that allows hikers to admire the gorge from an incredible perspective. The path also leads to cross two suspension bridges, including the Hollbrucke, with the noise of torrential waters and waterfalls interrupting the silence of this splendid naturalistic jewel. If you wish, you can end this excursion near the panoramic Gletscherschliff refuge, for a well-deserved regenerating break.
