The Serfaus community is a well-known winter sports resort in Tyrol. Together with the neighboring communities of Fiss and Ladis, Serfaus lies on a sun terrace at around 1400 m above the Inn Valley.
Serfaus does not offer any real sights. But interesting
buildings. In summer there is a weekly village tour with a visit to
The main focus of tourism in the three mountain villages is clearly on winter sports. There is a large, attractive ski area with 212 kilometers of slopes between 1200 and 2800 m. 135 km of slopes can be snowed.
There are 11 tow lifts, 16 chair lifts and 11 gondola lifts, almost all of which are state-of-the-art. Many gondolas and chairlifts have weather protection covers and heated seats. There are almost no waiting times (panorama with piste map)
There are 135 km of trails for Nordic winter sports enthusiasts.
The Serfaus ski school offers ski courses.
Tobogganing: In Fiss there is a 3 km long toboggan run. this can be reached with the Schönjochbahn 1. The toboggan run in Serfaus is 4 km long and starts at the mountain station of the Komperdellbahn. Night tobogganing is offered in both places
In summer it is much quieter in Serfaus. Therefore one tries to attract summer guests (especially families) with special offers. The mountain railways can be used free of charge with the guest card. The bus between the three villages can also be used free of charge. There is also free childcare and free guided mountain hikes.
For "mountain goats" there is an extensive range of mountain biking options. The mountain railways also transport bicycles in the summer season.
Mountain hiking is also possible. The mountains are worth seeing despite the ski area. However, due to the large ski area, you have to move quite further away from the village to find completely untouched mountains in the high alpine area. But the cable cars help and you can comfortably get to the undeveloped summit regions. An attractive day destination for experienced mountain hikers is z. B. the 3004 m high Furgler. With the Komperdell cable car to the 2320 m high Lazid, the ascent is shortened from 1400 to 700 m altitude.
An attractive path for families and beginners, on the other hand, is the "Panorama Pleasure Path". The easy-to-walk high path between 1950 and 1820 m above sea level connects the three mountain stations of the Komperdell, Sunliner and Möselalmbahn. The return journey from Fiss is possible by bus.
For families, the "Adventure World Serfaus" in the area of the middle station of the cable car "Komperdell" is worth seeing. There are e.g. B. a marmot enclosure and an adventure trail for children, the "Murmeltrail".
The nearby duty-free zone in Samnaun (Switzerland) is sure to tempt you to take a trip. The prices there are much higher than the Austrian ones (except for gasoline, tobacco, some cosmetics).
In Serfaus itself there are 2 supermarkets and many smaller shops as well as larger sports shops.
From Germany on the A 7 motorway near Füssen:
Drive via Reutte and the Fernpass on federal roads towards Inntal near Imst. If you are in a hurry, you can use the Inntal motorway, which requires a vignette, including the Landeck bypass tunnel for 20 km between Imst and Landeck (10-day vignette for cars: € 8.30, status 01-2012).
Important: The Landeck bypass tunnel without a motorway also requires a vignette. If you use the main road in the Inn Valley and do not have a vignette for the Austrian motorways, you should drive through the town of Landeck. Attention: The official signs to the Reschenpass lead through the tunnel (so disregard and drive straight ahead towards Zams). It is often checked at the tunnel. The 6.5 km long single-tube tunnel was rated good in the 2001 ADAC tunnel test.
If you don't feel comfortable in road tunnels, you'd better drive through the city of Landeck, which is also ideal for a stopover. Landeck Castle with a museum is worth seeing (it is more of a castle).
Around the city
The village of Serfaus is closed to motor vehicle traffic.
Exceptions apply to locals and guests staying in Serfaus. Day
visitors have to park their car in the parking lot at the entrance
to the village and take the Dorfbahn to the cable cars.
The 1280 m long Dorfbahn Serfaus underground connects the large car park at the eastern entrance to the village with the cable cars at the western end of the village. Use of the fully automated train is free. The journey time is 7 minutes.
Operating times: winter season 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Summer season 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
The stations "Raika" and "Kirche" also open up the long village. So if the area is further away from the cable cars, you can still get to the valley stations quite comfortably. More detailed information about the train (technically a cable-driven air cushion track) can be found in the corresponding Wikipedia article.
The Serfaus Dorfbahn has been renewed since April 2017. Detailed information can be found at www.ferienwohnung-serfaus.at/dorfbahn
