Tourism in Solden - Travel & Leisure
Welcome to Solden Travel & Leisure! Solden The tourist attractions of Solden concentrate several areas. With a high altitude and linked to two glaciers, Sölden is assured some of Austria's most reliable snow, with the added appeal of almost year-round skiing on the glaciers, which reach to a high point of 3,250 meters. Although warming climates make this less certain, it is not unusual to find skiers here from September through June. It's only an hour's drive from Innsbruck, but was largely overlooked by international skiers until it was used as the setting for the 2015 James Bond film, Spectre. Its mixed 150-kilometer terrain makes it more versatile than many resorts, and although it has a higher percentage of gentle and intermediate runs, the glaciers and off-piste skiing give experts plenty of options, especially on the Gaislachkogl mountain. Rettenbach also has more challenging terrain and has been the venue for the World Cup circuit since the 2000/2001 season. The two glaciers and the three different mountains are connected by actual runs and lifts, so skiing between them is not a series of cross-country catwalks. What the village of Sölden lacks in picturesque charm, it normally makes up for in exuberant après-ski life.
