Seefeld in Tirol is a picturesque ski resort in the heart of the Austrian Tyrol, north-west of Innsbruck. It is best known for cross-country skiing but also has many challenging downhill runs. It hosted the Nordic events in the Innsbruck Winter Olympics of 1964 and 1976 and the Nordic World Ski Championships in 2019. Great for both skiers and non-skiers, Seefeld has numerous excellent hotels and a variety of high-quality restaurants. There is so much competition that standards are almost universally high. The hotels strive to outdo each other with five and six-course dinners, luxurious spa complexes and programmes of planned activities.

Seefelderhof Seespitz Alpenpark Batzenhausl Ferienhotel Kaltschmid
Alpenpark Resort and Spa  Website Trip Advisor Page A high-quality hotel. Beautiful decor, excellent food, first class swimming pool and spa facilities and its own impressive kindergarten for the children. My hotel of choice in a resort with many fine hotels. (Speckbacherstrasse 182, A-6100 Seefeld) Gasthof Batzenhausl  Website Trip Advisor Page A charming little hotel near the Seekirchl just opposite the Olympia leisure complex. A high standard of decor throughout, comfortable bedrooms, hearty food and a lively cafe/bar on the ground floor. (Klosterstrasse 44, A-6100 Seefeld) Ferienhotel Kaltschmid  Website Trip Advisor Page A wonderful, traditional Tyrolean-style hotel on the northern edge of Seefeld’s pedestrian area. Fantastic food, free drinks with dinner and extensive leisure facilities, including a rooftop jacuzzi! (Olympiastrasse 101, A-6100 Seefeld) Hotel Seefelderhof  Website Trip Advisor Page A smaller, family-run hotel about 10 minutes walk north of the town centre. The hotel is lovingly cared for and the staff are very affable indeed. A high standard of food, a good spa and pool area and a welcoming bar area on the ground floor. (Munchnerstrasse 146, A-6100 Seefeld) Hotel Seespitz  Website Trip Advisor Page A superbly appointed hotel on the southern edge of Seefeld’s pedestrian area, near the Wildsee lake. The food is amongst the best in Seefeld (a high compliment indeed) and there is a lovely spa and pool area. (Innsbruckerstrasse 1, A-6100 Seefeld)

Restaurant Whispers

Alte Schmiede  Website Trip Advisor Page Located just off the main square in the hotel of the same name (which translates to “Old Smithy”). You have a choice of a great “people-watching” exterior terrace or a cosy interior restaurant. The food is wonderful, verging on fine dining, and consists of freshly prepared and beautifully presented Austrian dishes accompanied by a good selection of wines by the glass (or carafe!). Great service too. (Innsbrucker Str. 18, A-6100 Seefeld) Cafe Niveau  Trip Advisor Page A cheap and cheerful, family-run cafe bar in the heart of the pedestrian area. A great place for a light lunch or a mid-morning apfelstrudel and coffee. Other delights include goulash soup and (if you dare!) currywurst. One of my favourite Seefeld haunts. (Innsbruckerstrasse 11, A-6100 Seefeld) China Restaurant Asien  Trip Advisor Page A decent-quality Chinese restaurant near the level crossing just north of the pedestrian area. Can be a little more expensive in the evenings, but the special lunch menu is excellent value. Free hot plum wine presented with the bill! (Munchnerstrasse 605, A-6100 Seefeld) Plangger Delikatessen  Website Trip Advisor Page A restaurant / delicatessen - if you like the food in the restaurant you can buy it in the deli! Specialises in cold platters - various cold meats and cheeses with spicy relishes, supported by a good wine list. Try the Alpentapas platter. Usually rated number 1 in Seefeld by Trip Advisor. (Klosterstrasse 43, A-6100 Seefeld) Seefelder Stuben  Website Trip Advisor Page Looks like a typical Tyrolean restaurant, but you will find a pleasing mix of Austrian and Italian dishes on the menu. Excellent quality food and friendly staff. Just on the edge of the Dorfplatz. (Innsbruckerstrasse 23, A-6100 Seefeld) Stefan’s Pasteria  Trip Advisor Page Located south of the pedestrian area, opposite the Wildsee Lake. A great selection of pizzas, pastas and other Italian favourites plus a few Tyrolean staples, all freshly prepared and delicious. The atmosphere in the restaurant is cosy and Stefan is a polite, attentive host. Well worth the short walk out from the town centre. (Innsbruckerstrasse 162, A-6100 Seefeld) Sudtiroler Stube  Website Trip Advisor Page Traditional Tyrolean cooking in a old-world, rustic setting. All the old favourites are here, including Wiener schnitzel, groestl etc. Perhaps a little above average in terms of cost, but the quality of the food and the large portion sizes make it worth the money. (Reitherspitzstraße 17, A-6100 Seefeld) Triendlsäge  Website Trip Advisor Page A small family-run Gasthaus situated in an idyllic location in the middle of a forest about two kilometres from the centre of Seefeld. The restaurant has a wonderful, rustic Tyrolean ambience and serves high quality Tyrolean/Austrian food at reasonable prices. It is a hidden gem - one of Seefeld’s best kept secrets. You really should try it. (Triendlsäge 259, A-6100 Seefeld)
