Seefeld Sightseeing

We took a sightseeing trip today up to Seefeld, which will host the 2019 Nordic World Championships in just a couple of weeks.

It's a pretty village, although the main core near the bahnhof (train station) is pretty touristy, with some expensive restaurants and a few trinket shops that are as bad as anything you'll find in the U.S.

We went for a walk and found some cheaper and better dining options off the main strip. 

Seefeld is at 1180 meters (3870 ft) elevation and has an impressive snowpack this year. 

It was overcast when we arrived in the morning, but we got some sun breaks in the early afternoon before we headed back to Innsbruck. 

Although I didn't bring my skate skis with me for lack of room, I hope to rent and get in a few skates.  The train from Innsbruck to Seefeld is free if you have skis and the track starts perhaps a half kilometer or so from the train station, although those trails will be closed for a time for the World Championships.  There is an impressive array of trails (245 km!) linking several towns and villages in the area, with distances far more than I'll be able to cover now that I'm not skating regularly.  More at
