Seefeld
In general terms, Seefeld's clientele makes it more of a mature resort, and middle- to upmarket. This doesn't mean that it's staid by any means. Plenty to do for all types and ages, although teenage groups seeking unrestrained nightlife will be disappointed. Advanced skiers will find little challenge, but beginners and family groups will find it a rewarding choice.

Snowboarding - Snowparks: 1, Halfpipes: 1, Quarter pipes: 2, Boarding on all pistes:

Other Snow Sports - Cross country: 240km, Cross country equipment available, Sleigh rides,

The ski-school operates every day of the week.

2 major types of ski-pass: one that is valid at Seefeld, Reith, Mosern and Neuleutasch, and another (good for 3 to 21 days) that is valid in the above-mentioned places, plus Mittenwald, Garmisch-Zugspitze, Erhwald, Lermoos, Biberwier, Bichlbach, Heiterwang and Berwang.

There are plenty of non-skiing pursuits to complement the idea that this is an all-round resort and not just a ski venue. If you want the full Austrian Alpine experience, Seefeld is well worth a visit.

In the daytime winter activities include alpine skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, curling, cross-country skiing, sleigh rides, winter-walking trails. Ffor those who would like to stay warmer there is Indoor swimming pool, tennis, squash, bowling, fitness studio, and golf. In summer, lake bathing, swimming, horse riding, golf, mountain biking and hiking.

The Nightlife brings a few pubs, discos and nightclubs and lots of stylish little cafes. Tyrolean music venues. A large Casino. Most hotels offer an alternative evening entertainment.

Most restaurants tend to belong to hotels and offer a good selection from traditional Austrian to pizzerias, Chinese and a "Ritter Kuche" (medieval restaurant). Reasonably priced mountain huts for lunch and those inevitable morale-boosting gluhweins.

Full day excursions tend to involve Innsbruck's shops and charming old town; Salzburg; across the German border for Bavarian castles.
