Sölden is one of the Alps leading destinations thanks largely to its excellent snow record and access to two glaciers. The extensive network of slopes and an impressive lift system extends all the way to neighbouring Obergurgl. The long town is bisected by a river and is split between the quieter hotels and chalets and the more lively area with restaurants, bars and shopping. With a guarantee of lively après ski and plenty of bars and clubs to choose from, Sölden has a lively and vibrant atmosphere.

Ski Areas

The Sölden ski resort offers fantastic skiing on the glaciers from October until mid-May. The sheer altitude of the resort makes it very snow-sure and home to the 'BIG 3' three thousand metre plus peaks; Gaislachkogl, Tiefenbachkogl and Schwarze Schneide. The altitude of this resort gives some of the most breathtaking panoramic views of the area; combine that with amazing snow conditions and Sölden becomes one of the most loved Austria resorts.

Solden accommodations

Accommodation

Skiing

With an extensive and efficient lift system reaching all the way up to the Rettenbach and Fiefenbach glaciers, skiing is guaranteed year-round. Most of the runs favour intermediates, with experts getting an admirable selection. The opportunity to ski at a high altitude, above 2,000m, enhances the reliability of the snow, guaranteeing great skiing conditions. There is also a 4km floodlit piste for night skiing and a ski show at the Gaislachkogl middle station every Wednesday, with live acts and a musical fireworks display - not to be missed.

Snowboarding

Long runs and open terrain are favoured by boarders enabling great freeriding opportunities. There is also a terrain park above Giggijoch which is well-established and regularly upgraded. With something for all levels as well as some unique features, including a chill-out zone and an option to record your run, snowboarding in Sölden is highly regarded.

Ski Schools

The ski school in Sölden is very well established and only selects the highest quality instructors. Lessons are available for children, teens and adults, whether that be in a group environment or in private lessons. There are also options for snowboarders, freeriding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ski tours. 

Restaurants

Offering an abundance of restaurants, Sölden has everything from traditional Austrian cuisine to steakhouses. For a real Tirolean experience head to s’Pfandl where you can enjoy excellent local cuisine in a rustic and charming setting. For hearty Italian food and great salads, Corso is the place to go.  Slightly off the beaten track, the food at Culinaria is well worth the effort with all local ingredients, the service is warm and the wine list is entirely Austrian. 

Après Ski

Well-known for being lively from late afternoon to the early morning, Sölden is alive in the evening with lots of variety in bars and clubs. Eugen’s Obstlerhütte, a mountain hut on the piste between Hochsölden and Sölden, kicks off après on its large terrace from 3pm and often has live music. Situated right at the bottom of the Giggijoch gondola, Giggi Tenne is the perfect place to have a drink with friends and celebrate a successful day on the slopes. For those looking for a late night, Fire and Ice is open until the early hours.

Non-Skiers

For those that aren’t looking to go skiing, Sölden has plenty to keep you busy. A leisure centre, swimming pool and ice rink are among some of the town’s most popular attractions. There is also a 5km floodlit toboggan run and the opportunity to arrange ice climbing and sleigh rides. Additionally, the thermal spa in Gaislachkogl is accessible by bus.
