Seefeld

 

The Olympiaregion Seefeld, which comprises the villages of Mösern/Buchen, Scharnitz, Reith, Leutasch and Seefeld, is located on a southerly exposed plateau 1,200 m above sea level, surrounded by the Karwendel Natural Park, the highest of its kind in the Eastern Alps, the Wildmoos landscape conservation area and the Wetterstein mountains. The name of the resort reflects its traditional association with sport: in 1964, 1976 and 2012, the Seefeld plateau was the venue of the Nordic disciplines of the Winter Olympic Games and Winter Youth Olympic Games. In 2019, the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships will take place in Seefeld for the second time – the first time being in 1985.
