General information

Sölden is the most famous winter sports destination in the Ötztal Arena. Besides the beautiful ski resort with its steady snow record, Sölden is also famous for its amazing après-ski parties and you will soon discover why people call Sölden the “Ibiza of the Alps”. Many international ski and snowboard competitions are organised here and concerts are regularly on the agenda as well! In the village you will find the Freizeit Arena, a recreation centre with a swimming pool, sauna, fitness, tennis courts, a bowling alley, cinema, restaurants, etc. You can also ice skate and sleigh on a 4 kilometer flood-lit track in Sölden. Setting out from Sölden you can take the Ötztaler Gletscherbahn and a chair lift up to the top of the 3058 meter high Gaislachkol. Sölden also has approximately 30 kilometers of hiking trails set out along the river and around the village. The highest point to be reached by foot is Hochsölden, at an altitude of 2027 meters. Hochsölden is a small village and is ideal for families with children. The village is situated on the Giggijoch which means that you can nearly always ski back to your accommodation. You can also reach this village by car and ski lift and there is even a bus service between Sölden and Hochsölden (approx. 9 kilometers). Because the village primarily consists of hotels the night life is quite low key, but you can always head down to Sölden for the real party atmosphere.
