Seefeld

 

The Olympiaregion Seefeld, consisting of the villages of Mösern/Buchen, Scharnitz, Reith, Leutasch and Seefeld, is located on a south-facing high plateau at 1,200 m above sea level, surrounded by the Karwendel Nature Park, the highest of its kind in the Eastern Alps , the Wildmoos landscape conservation area and the Wetterstein Mountains. The name of the village reflects its traditional links with sport: in 1964, 1976 and 2012 the Seefeld Plateau hosted the Nordic disciplines of the Winter Olympics and the Winter Youth Olympic Games.
