Holiday information

 

A winter holiday in Mösern, Tyrol,

for skiers and non-skiers
Situated in the heart of the Tyrol, a picturesque region renowned for its hospitality, the historic village of Mösern enjoys the best of both worlds: an idyllic setting boasting inspirational views over the Inn Valley, as well as easy access to Seefeld, the perfect winter playground.
Here, beneath a backdrop of jagged mountains, lie a wide range of winter walking paths, as well as cross-country trails for all levels, and well-regarded downhill pistes. The choice doesn’t stop there, though – you can also explore the Tyrol’s snow-covered scenery on a snowshoe hike or horse-drawn sleigh ride; try your hand at ice-skating and curling; or, for a complete change, enjoy a day out to the fairy-tale city of Innsbruck, with its dramatic mountain backdrop and impressive Imperial Palace.

The Hotel Inntaler Hof is the perfect place from which to enjoy all this, and more, with the added bonus of a superb spa and first-rate cuisine. We have worked with English-speaking owners Stefan and Daniela Heidkamp for many years, and can assure you of a very warm and genuine welcome here. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the hotel is praised equally highly by the families staying here at holiday time as by the keen skiers and walkers with whom it is very popular during the rest of the season.
 

Our expert says

"It’s true that, unless you’re a fairly good cross-country skier, you need to take the bus to reach the skiing, but this is a small price to pay to stay in such a wonderful hotel. The Inntaler Hof embodies the best of the Tyrol, and the views over the Inn Valley are the icing on the cake."

Winter activities

There’s no fixed itinerary, so take your pick of the activities as the mood takes you.
  • 142km in the Olympiaregion Seefeld
    Framed by the towering Wetterstein Mountains and enjoying far-reaching views from its privileged perch high on the Seefeld plateau, Mösern is a superbly scenic place to walk. The winter trails are suitable for all fitness levels; those in the village begin 200 metres from the hotel, while further options are just a short bus ride away (use your visitor’s card for free local travel).

    All trails are well signed, and the snow specially flattened to facilitate walking. In the detailed documentation we provide, we give an overview of our favourite options, including the following three routes:

    Mösern-Wildmoos circuit: 11.5km
    Starting from the centre of Mösern, this beautiful circular route initially heads westward, looping around Lake Möserer before entering the peaceful Wildmoos Valley. One of the highlights of the walk is the chance to call into the Wildmoosalm – this delightful mountain restaurant is renowned for its tasty Tyrolean dumpling soup and traditional Apfelstrudel (‘apple strudel’).

    Mösern to Seefeld: 4km
    This shorter route is a good leg-stretcher, exploring some of the forested land that lies between Mösern and Seefeld. For those keen for a longer walk, it’s possible to add a circuit of Lake Möserer at the beginning, and to return from Seefeld on foot rather than making use of the free local bus service.

    Buchen-Katzenloch circuit: 9km
    Take the bus from Mösern to the nearby village of Buchen to begin this varied walk through landscapes once roamed by wolves, bears, lynx and wild cats. Before setting off, you have the opportunity to visit Buchen’s Bergbauen Museum, which gives an interesting insight into life in the mountains. It’s also well worth stopping by the Ropferstub’m inn for a delicious blueberry pancake – the house speciality.

  • 279km in the Olympiaregion Seefeld; best suited to intermediates & advanced
    Mösern’s cross-country trails lie just a short walk from the hotel, and those that lead away from the village feed into an extensive local network centred around the nearby resort of Seefeld – a frequent host of World Cup events. Bus travel across the network is free of charge with your visitor’s card, though a trail pass is required to access the trails. 

    The terrain close to Mösern is reasonably steep and best suited to more accomplished skiers. Beginners should not be put off, however, as the ski school in Mösern is excellent, and up on the Seefeld plateau there is a wide range of trails for all abilities. Here are some of our favourite options:

    Nachtloipe: 3km
    Winding across the plateau between Mösern and Seefeld, this short trail is popular with beginners, and is perfect for finding your ‘ski legs’ on your first day. The trail can be accessed by bus.

    Mösern: 3km
    This intermediate-level trail is accessible to skiers of all abilities, and often enjoys all-day sunshine. The trail passes the bottom of the Seewald downhill lift, where you can pause for refreshments and catch the bus back to the hotel.

    Wildmoos: 5km
    Heading away from the hustle and bustle of Seefeld, this challenging trail takes you up to the Wildmoosalm, a delightful mountain restaurant that makes an excellent lunch stop.
    Beautiful trails around nearby Seefeld
  • Downhill skiing, horse-drawn sleigh rides & more

    Downhill skiing – best for beginners & intermediates
    Mösern’s proximity to the highly regarded downhill resort of Seefeld – it’s no more than a 5-minute bus ride away – affords easy access to a wide selection of beginner and intermediate runs. There is also a small downhill slope in the village itself: conveniently located just opposite the ski school, it’s ideal for families and those learning to ski for the first time.  

    Horse-drawn sleigh rides
    There can be few more magical ways to experience Mösern’s peaceful wintry scenery than by horse-drawn sleigh. For holidays starting between 2-16 January and 6-21 March 2021, we include a relaxing sleigh ride through the forests; outside these dates, your hotel will be happy to organise a ride for you (please discuss and pay locally).

    Snowshoeing
    With their larger frames and impressive traction, snowshoes open up landscapes that are off-limits to most walkers, skiers and vehicles. A particularly exciting option from Mösern leads up the Brunschkopf, where you can pick up the ‘Ice Age Trail’ and hike to an altitude of 1,510 metres. Your reward? Glorious, almost 360-degree views…

    Ice-skating & curling
    There is an outdoor ice rink in Seefeld, beautifully situated by the pretty Seekirchl church. The rink is open daily and offers skate hire and once-weekly curling lessons (the latter are free with your visitor’s card but need to be booked up to 24 hours in advance – your hotel will be able to assist with this).

    Tobogganing
    The Seefeld region is home to a number of toboggan runs, with the closest being the 2.5-kilometre natural run from the Reitherjoch Alm (access is by bus and ski lift). Toboggans can be hired from the hotel.

  • Innsbruck & more

    Innsbruck
    Take the bus and train (pay locally for the latter) to Innsbruck, where we provide notes for a self-guided city walking tour. With the Dolomites to the south and the Tyrolean peaks to the north and west, this fairy-tale city boasts a splendid mountain panorama. Admire the Baroque façades of the houses lining Herzog Friedrich Strasse, and do not miss the Imperial Palace and the beautiful Goldenes Dachl ('Golden Roof'), an extraordinary Gothic bay window with 2,657 gilded copper tiles dating from the rule of Emperor Maximilian I.

    Rosshütte
    A favourite day out of ours is to head to Rosshütte. Sitting just below the Seefelder Joch peak, the views on a clear day are quite spectacular. Access is from Seefeld by the Standseilbahn, a funicular railway which whisks you from 1,230 to 1,760 metres. At the top, there is a self-service panoramic restaurant – choose to sit inside or, later in the season, enjoy the sunshine out on the terrace.

  • An ideal family destination
    Mösern and the Inntaler Hof make a particularly good choice for families. The hotel caters very well for children of all ages, with good-sized family rooms and apartments, as well as a kids’ club that offers plenty of indoor and outdoor fun – including painting, handicrafts and tobogganing – to all children over the age of three. (The club is open from Sunday-Friday during the main holiday period, over Christmas, New Year and in February.)

    Children over three can also benefit from lessons at the village ski school, which is located 600 metres from the hotel and opposite a small downhill slope – where the children’s lessons are held, conditions permitting. The larger ski area around Seefeld is easily accessible, too – the lifts are just a few minutes’ bus ride away.

  • Special events
    Enjoy a traditional Tyrolean Christmas Eve with a gala dinner (there are also lots of activities for children). New Year is marked with a candlelit gala dinner, followed by fireworks at midnight, and dancing until the early hours.
 

Where you stay

Perched above the Inn valley, Mösern (altitude: 1206m) is said to have the most hours of sunshine in the Tyrol. Besides its stunning views, this peaceful village’s great feature is its open-air bronze bell, the largest in the Alps, which rings out at 5pm each day as a symbol of peace. Mösern itself is quite small, with just a handful of shops and a café. In contrast, Seefeld, 3km away, is considerably larger and more bustling, offering a wide range of shops, cafés and restaurants; a swimming pool complex; as well as discos and even a casino.

Please note: most beds in Austrian hotels are normally one large base with two mattresses/duvets. We refer to these as 'Austrian Twins' and they are locally regarded to serve requests for both double and twin bedded rooms. Separate twin beds or traditional double beds with one large mattress are rare and cannot be guaranteed.

FAQs

  • We sincerely hope that your holiday experience will be as enjoyable as it would have been before the pandemic – activities such as winter walking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are ideal in these times of social distancing, and we’re not operating holidays if the key highlights can no longer be delivered – but, naturally, there will be some changes to ensure your and other people’s safety.

  • If you are travelling over Christmas or New Year, or during school holidays, you should definitely pre-book lessons. After you’ve booked your holiday with us, we’ll send you a link to a list of options that we can arrange for you in advance.
    Sometimes we can’t make bookings on your behalf. In these cases you should phone or email the ski school well before your holiday to arrange a date and time; do not wait until you are on holiday to make arrangements.

  • They are two mattresses (each with separate bedding) on one large base. They are locally regarded to serve requests for both double and twin bedded rooms. Separate twin beds or traditional double beds with one large mattress are rare and cannot be guaranteed.
  • In the Alps, most hotels have a vegetarian menu. Please contact us for specific information about this particular hotel.
  • Living far from the capital ourselves, we know better than most that flying from London can be a bind, so we are very flexible with our travel arrangements. Call or email us, and one of the team will be happy to list the different options available to you, and any price implications.
  • Absolutely! We are experts in tailored rail travel. Making use of sleeper trains or stopovers in cities along the route, we can get you from London to virtually anywhere in mainland Europe. We can even make arrangements to Mallorca, Sicily and Norway with a combination of ferries and rail. Please contact Abi and Lizzie to discuss your plans.
  • Once you’ve decided on your exact itinerary (our travel experts will be happy to offer advice), you need to provide us with your party’s details, either by phone or via our booking form. At this point we also ask you to pay a deposit so that we can secure a room for you immediately on confirming availability with the hotel(s). If it turns out that we can’t secure the accommodation for the holiday you’ve requested, or offer an acceptable alternative, we’ll refund your deposit promptly and in full. After booking your accommodation and other key elements, we'll then book your travel (or you can do so if you’re making your own arrangements) and send you a Booking Confirmation and Invoice.

  • Yes, it’s something we insist on, even for holidays in the UK. The vast majority of holidays go smoothly, but when things go wrong, it can be expensive to put them right. Buying a new pair of walking boots after your suitcase is stolen mightn’t seem so bad, but the bill for being airlifted down from a mountain with a broken leg or flown home while still recovering from an illness or accident can cost tens of thousands of pounds.

    You don’t have to take out our recommended travel insurance policy (if you live outside Europe you’ll definitely need to make your own arrangements, as the policy is only for residents of the UK and Europe, but not Switzerland), but you do need to make sure that you’re covered for medical emergencies – including falling ill with Covid-19 while on holiday – and repatriation. We also recommend that you are covered for other eventualities, such as cancellation and loss of luggage and passports.

    We'll ask you for the details of your policy (insurer, policy number and medical emergency phone number) so that we can help out if the worst happens while you are on holiday. It's up to you, though, to check that your policy covers the activities you'll be doing on holiday and that it is adequate for your own individual needs; we don't check alternative policies.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure you are in possession of the correct travel documents, with the correct validity. If you’re a UK citizen, you need a full British passport to travel to Austria, but not a visa. If you are a citizen of another country, you’ll need to check requirements with the national embassy or your own consulate.

    Current information regarding vaccinations and travel health advice for UK citizens can be found through the Travel Health Pro website. You must make sure you have adequate insurance cover for illness, accidents and repatriation (see the insurance question). If still entitled to one when the EU withdrawal transition period ends on 31 December 2020, UK citizens should also obtain a European Health Insurance Card (a scheme allowing reciprocal health care) by applying at a Post Office or at www.ehic.org.uk.
