Summer hiking suggestions

The hiking trails in the Seefeld area are optimally signposted and incredibly extensive (650 kilometres), and therefore have many opportunities for you in the summer. Everything is there: from a leisurely, small hiking route to an extensive circular route where you can experience the beauty of the Olympic region at first hand! We have carefully put together the most popular and beautiful hikes for you:

From Pfarrhügel to idyllic lake Wildsee in Seefeld

The gentle Pfarrhügel (Parish Hill) right in front of our hotel in Seefeld is the starting point for many a hike in the summer. This hike leads you from the St. Oswald Parish Church (which is across from the Seefeld Information Office) over the Pfarrhügel towards the “Stone Circle” and left down to beautiful Wildsee. In summer temperatures you can cool your legs in the refreshingly cool water and observe the lakeside inhabitants at the same time. Coots, ducks and squirrels in the forest are among the wildlife to be seen here.

Hiking time: approx. 1 hour
Level of difficulty: easy

Circular route from Mösern via Buchen to Wildmoos

This is a slightly longer hiking route which brings you to the most beautiful corners of the Seefeld Plateau. Starting at the Seekirchl church in Seefeld, the circular route leads past the indoor tennis courts and further towards lake Möserer See in Mösern. The Pirschsteig trail up to the Lottensee Hut starts at roughly halfway along the lakeside trail. With a bit of luck you can marvel at the periodically appearing lake Lottensee here. At about 100 metres before the Lottensee Hut, walk on the left past the garage building, cross the golf course and follow the trail again on the left towards Buchen. An excellent view of the Inn Valley awaits you here! The circular route proceeds past Gasthof Ropferstub’m (with a fantastic view of the Inn Valley) as well as Gasthaus Buchener Höhe and leads you on the Schlagweg trail into Muggenmoos. There the Schlagsteig trail branches off to the right and leads to Ferienheim Wildmoos (holiday home). The route eventually continues via Wildmoosalm on the Hörmannweg trail or road back to Seefeld again.

Hiking time: approx. 4 ½ hours

Kneipp circular hike

The Kneipp (hydrotherapy) circular route starts near Hotel Haymon. From there walk on the left to the crossing, and then along the road in the direction of the tunnel. Turn to the left at the entrance in the direction of the lake and shortly after that you will see the large Kneipp (hydrotherapy) facility on the Wildsee shoreline. The trail continues through an idyllic forest at the fallow deer enclosure towards Café Englhof. From there you follow the trail towards the federal road and further to Auland. The trail leads you further straight ahead towards Reith. Follow the trail towards Haus Kristall. Shortly after that the railway underpass appears off to the left, where you continue to follow the trail towards the St. Florian Kneipp Facility. A forest trail leads you to a roundabout shortly before the Seefeld Hauptschule (general secondary school) at Römerweg. If you continue to walk straight ahead from there you will see another roundabout, where you walk in the direction of Hermannstalstrasse towards Seefelderhof on Münchener Strasse.

As soon as you cross the railway underpass, branch off to the left at Birkenstüberl and follow the trail towards Triendlsäge, where you will soon reach the former Triendlsäge Kneipp Facility. The circular route proceeds further along an asphalt road towards the road junction in the direction of Geigenbühel. Cross the small wooden bridge and continue hiking along the Wurzelsteig trail that leads you back to Seefeld on the Geigenbühel. Once you arrive there, the route continues over the Panoramaweg trail (beautiful view over Seefeld) into the town centre. At the junction Geigenbühelstrasse / Panoramaweg, take the little side street (Wiesenweg) at Geigenbühel, which leads you through the residential area Kirchwaldsiedlung and then towards the WM indoor tennis courts. From there you can also walk towards Mösern. As soon as you leave the forest trail, cross the federal road and hike along an idyllic trail over the meadows in the Möserer valley in the direction of the Toni Seelos Ski Jump. After arriving at the ski jump the route continues via the Sportalm at Gschwandtkopf and through the tunnel back to the starting point at Hotel Haymon.

Hiking in the Karwendel
Hiking in the Gaistal

Over the Seefelder Spitze (2,221 metres)

If you are longing for an extensive view over the mountain world of the Inn Valley, this mountain hike is just the right thing for you. This route starts at the Rosshütte mountain lift facility, where you use the funicular railway to arrive at the top station. From here, either the gondola lift will bring you up to the Seefelder Joch (2,060 metres), or you can hike up. The initially wide mountain ridge leads southwards, where a narrower ridge leads up to the Seefelder Spitze (2,221 metres).  There the Alpine choughs will quarrel over the snack you brought along and scavenge a morsel or two with a bit of luck. Now the challenging track leads just to the right of the southern ridge in partially craggy terrain downhill into a gap on the other side of the ridge, and then down into an area known as the “Törl” (little gateway). Stay to the right in order to arrive downhill at a branch in the trail, where you hike to the left along the foot of the rock face. Hike further along steep hillsides down to the Härmelekopf top station, from where you can take the gondola cable car via the Hermannstal valley back to the Rosshütte top station. Here you can either walk back down to the valley or use the funicular railway.

Hiking time: approx. 2 hours
Level of difficulty: challenging, requires good stamina

Circular hike over the Gschwandtkopf

The circular hike over the Gschwandtkopf starts above the Olympia Sports Centre behind the Pfarrhügel. The trail leads up to the Gschwandtkopf and partially along the ski run. The descent occurs via the back side, below and past the Ötzi Hut, and leads you towards Reith-Auland. Hike past Hotel Alpenkönig, branch off to the left towards Café Englhof and walk further on the footpath towards the bottom station of the Gschwandtkopf lift in Auland. After a few minutes from here you will reach a trail on the left side that takes you through Falkenried and the Auländer Mähder pastureland back to the lakeside promenade.

Hiking time: approx. 2 ½ hours
Level of difficulty: moderate

Leutasch Geisterklamm (Spirit Gorge)

This is a boundless adventure trail leading into the realm of the “gorge spirit” that will delight young and old hikers. The hike starts at the parking area in Leutasch/Schanz at the end of the Leutasch Valley in the direction of the German border. It is easily reachable with the regional bus or by car. From there a modern steel path winds its way through the gorge for over one kilometre. The trail runs 43 metres above the raging river Leutascher Ache, which flows into the Isar River in Mittenwald. The bridge to the glacial polish area is truly spectacular! Please note that this hike is not suitable for dogs and prams.

Hiking time: approx. 2 hours
