A summer full of music
The 6th Mountain Crystal Festival featuring Mario and Christoph remarks the beginning of an exciting season full of music. Sing and dance along finest pop songs, also known as “Schlager”, and best Tyrolean folk music for several days. The Ambassadors of Music from the United States present a wide range of different concerts at the “Ambassadors of Music” Concert Series 2017 – an event well worth seeing! The Seefeld Summer Concerts tell a very special story under the motto “Baroque and modern times” this year. The music leads its audience through the centuries – simply wonderful!
During the Festival of Classic Music, very special music enchants the stunning scenery of the alpine world. At the Days of Music, renowned and award-winning musicians from all over the world come together. And they share one language: The Music. The diverse programme fascinates and enchants all visitors from the ears down to their toes!
Culture & Delight: Because we simply love it!
We celebrate the beginning of spring and the awakening of the nature: The Mountain Spring Days are the perfect event to do so! You can experience wonderful walks, a delicious organic breakfast on the mountain, a full moon hike, amusing stories from the alp and much more! Tuesday is an important day in the Olympiaregion Seefeld this summer: It’s the day of Seefeld’s Tuesday Market! Here, you can find everything your heart (and stomach) desire – take a relaxed stroll through the market square and the city centre of Seefeld. Another popular highlight of the year is the Grand Strudel Festival of Seefeld’s Publicans. Here, you can find a huge variety of extraordinary, delicious variations of “Strudel”, an Austrian specialty. It’s heaven on earth for those with a passion for good food and sweet teeth!
The Shopping & Wine is an event with lots of atmosphere. The best Austrian wine-growers present their best creations of the year. While you’re enjoying a good glass of wine, you can get inspired by the newest fashion. Another event that guarantees lots of fun and a nice get-together is the Village Festival of Seefeld’s Associations. Live acts, DJs and the traditional dance group “Seefelder Plattler” make this day an unforgettable one! Gourmets and admirers of craftsmanship, attention please! During the Summer Market of Leutasch, the idyllic village turns into an outstanding market square where you can find unique craftsmanship and delightful specialties from the region.
At the White Secco White Night, Seefeld becomes an outstanding fashion capital for one night. The inner city turns into a runway and proudly presents the exclusive fashion of Seefeld’s boutiques. Fashion bars serve delicious drinks and make this night an unforgettable shopping experience. The Traditional Tyrolean Craft Fair honours the old craftsmanship and unites the “last masters of their guild” who love to show off their scarce skills. Let yourself be carried away by the delicious smell of fresh stone baked bread, admire the traditional alpine costumes, listen to Tyrolean folks music and pamper yourself with heavenly specialties!
It’s all about sports!
