The wonderful Seefeld in Tirol is a pleasant starting point for landscape photographers. We show you the most beautiful photo spots in Seefeld and photo locations at beautiful viewpoints for unique mountain panoramas. Our best tips for your photo adventure in North Tirol.
Seefeld is located on a beautiful high plateau in the Austrian Tirol. Located directly on the German-Austrian border, vacationers and photographers particularly enjoy the quick reach from Munich, Ulm and Stuttgart.
Photo spots in Seefeld and surroundings
The skiing areas in Seefeld are rather small, but the views of the Zugspitz massif, the Mieminger mountain range and the rugged Karwendel are enormous. In the background, the 3000 m peaks of the Stubai Alps and Ötztal Alps greet you over the valley. Wonderful mountain panoramas can be photographed here with little effort.
Photographically you miss a dream photo spot in Seefeld, as in most inner-Alpine areas. Surrounded by similarly high mountains, it is difficult to highlight a special photo location or great vantage point. No worries, read on and we tell you our favourite locations.
Although there is not one top spot, the high plateau between Seefeld and Leutasch is blessed with many relatively easily accessible beautiful panoramic locations that radiate alpine and high-alpine flair.
The view in the Rosshütte ski area hikes from the Zugspitze – in the truest sense of the word you only see the peak – to the glaciers around the 3000 m peaks on the main Alpine ridge in Tirol.
Photo location Reither Spitze (ski area Rosshütte)
Our favorite photo spot around Seefeld is the ski area Rosshütte and especially the Reither Spitze. The view from the Karwendel to the German borders to Bavaria, the Zugspitze, Hohe Munde as well as the Inn valley and the main Alpine ridge is breathtaking.
The climb to the Reither Spitze is only for experienced hikers and mountain hikers – the last 200 meters of altitude are exposed and sure-footed is necessary, but the difficult passages are secured with ropes.
Tip for beginners: If you have less alpine experience, you can simply take a gondola ride to the top station – the view here is no less impressive in winter and summer.
View point Hohe Munde – Rauthhütte
The Hohe Munde lies at the end of the Mieminger chain and impresses with its head-like shape and very steep rock cliffs. In winter there is a beautiful photo spot on the cross-country ski trail in Leutasch, in summer the view of this beautiful mountain from the opposite Reither Spitze or Rosshütte ski area is recommendable.
Peak climbers should bring enough water and fitness, there are over 1400 meters of altitude to overcome and already after a few meters of altitude there is no water point.
Tip for beginners: If you are not really a summit striker and can’t make the long tour to the Hohe Munde, you can stop at the Rauthhütte after a few hours of hiking and enjoy the peace and quiet and a similarly beautiful panorama.
Our tip: Tour to the Rauthhütte at sunrise!
Hike to the Rotmoosalm
The Rotmoosalm lies on the south side of the Mieminger chain and is a popular excursion destination for e-bikers and hikers. The Kasspress dumplings are well known and popular, the view of the Hohe and the Niedere Munde is particularly beautiful in the morning light.
The hut was rebuilt in the 2010′ after the old hut was flattened by an avalanche. The new location of the hut is like a gift for mountain photographers. A highly recommended day destination for hikers as well as mountain bikers and photography enthusiasts. However, the dream view has to be worked out at 900 meters altitude.
High Alpine Tours – Anniversary Climb and co.
A real alpine classic is the anniversary ridge. From the Zugspitze, it roughly goes towards Seefeld and is probably the high alpine highlight tour that starts in Germany after the Watzmann for alpine mountain enthusiasts.
But beware: the “anniversary burr” is not a hiking trail, but a mostly unsecured and extremely steep ridge climb – only for experienced mountaineers and not to be underestimated. Absolute step security and head for heights as well as alpine experience are necessary here.
Tip for beginners: If you just want to get a taste of the alpine air, you can hike via the Rotmoosalm to Gatterln.
Photo locations for walkers in the valley – Gaistal, lakes near Mittenwald
For those who are less drawn to the top, we recommend an enjoyable hike through the high plateau between Seefeld and Leutasch, the hike into the Gaistal as well as an excursion to the nearby lakes in Germany (Barmsee, Kochelsee, Walchensee…).
During sunset in winter we recommend a sun down in one of the panoramic terraces of the restaurants in Mösern. The view of the Inn valley is particularly beautiful in the afternoon with deep winter sun.
These are our recommendations for photographing in Seefeld, Leutasch and the Northern Alps near Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Do you have other beautiful photo spots in the area? Share them with us and other photographers!
