Seefeld: A good place if you wanted to drop anchor and stay in a village

Seefeld is not very well promoted around Innsbruck. There is no free bus and if you are looking to get there from town, the best way is the train. About 12 euro return and takes about 35min. A lot quicker than the busses from town. 

I can see why they don't like to promote this place as you can stay here as it has a good village life. The town of Innsbruck is trying to get people to stay there. The mountains they offer free transport to don't provide any village life, so best to come back into Innsbruck.

We wanted to check out something new and found this place with a bit of help from Google. Regarding a village, it looks amazing and big enough to keep you satisfied for a long weekend, or even a week. Just not sure the mountain will keep you interested for the week. 

There are two sides of the mountain and no simple connections. You will have to get a bus which can get a little frustrating. 

The mountain does have some slopes for beginners. There is a lot of intermediate runs, so a right place if you are looking to progress from a beginner. Also a good resort for families, this was something I picked up on. But when the sun goes down there are some forbidden fruits in strippers and nightclubs. But it felt like it was for an older crowd. 

If you are looking for a party, the town offers this as there are some clubs in town.  I walked past the casino a couple of times but was never tempted to go in. I don't like gambling, but I like having the option. 

Also, this place is massively set up for skiers. You won't find many snowboarders here, and there were loads of people going cross country skiing. Something I can't understand, but the people of Seefeld love it. So if you are into this, here is a place where you will fit right in as they have the terrain for learning/ practicing and putting into play. 

If you are looking for a place to visit outside of Innsbruck, here is a good option as a package deal. This being a good mountain, village life, Apres, and transport links. Enjoy Trendsetters
