AprèSki in Söll

Söll is not as raucous as it used to be, but it’s still very lively and a lot of places have live music. At teatime bars such as Moonlight and Hexenalm, close to the gondola base, are lively. So too is Salvenstadl (Cow Shed) on the edge of the village, recommended by a recent reporter. The Red Horse Pub is a ‘great, lively, atmospheric bar’.

Later on, the large, central Whisky-Mühle disco can get wild, especially after the bars close. The hotel Austria bar has been recommended by a past reporter. Rossini is good for cocktails and live music.

Off the slopes

skiwelt5

There are two toboggan runs (4km and 3km) from the top of the gondola. Both are floodlit on Wednesday to Saturday, one until 10.30pm, the other until 2am. The large baroque church is worth a visit. Coach excursions go to Salzburg, Innsbruck and even Vipiteno, in Italy.

A Cultural Day in Kufstein

Halfway between Innsbruck and Salzburg, at the foot of the great Kaiser mountain range, sits the medieval town of Kufstein. With its 30,000-year-old history and rich cultural roots, Kufstein is fascinating in its own right — and a perfect introduction to Tyrolean antiquity, design and arts.
Over the centuries the town found itself intermittently disputed by Bavaria, Tyrol and the Habsburg Empire. Warfare visited on and off for hundreds of years, leaving the town its most visible landmark, the prominent Kufstein Fortress.

Accessible by funicular or a steep walkway, the fortress is the town’s foremost attraction, and for good reason. The museum within offers not only eye-opening historical insights, but a stunning view over the town and nearby mountains.

Not to be missed is the Heldenorgel organ, housed deep in one of the fortress’s massive towers. With its 4.948 pipes and 46 registers it’s the largest open-air organ in the world. Every day at noon the sound of this remarkable instrument is heard for miles.

Kufstein is also home to Riedel Glass, one of Tirol’s most prominent design brands and possibly the world’s most respected wine glass company. Run by the same family since 1756, Riedel Glass invites visitors to witness its traditional glassblowing craftsmanship five days a week. Check here for Riedel Glass factory tours and factory store information.

For travelers looking for a truly memorable bar experience, Stollen 1930 is a popular local institution, reminiscent of a 1930s speakeasy and built right into the mountain.
