Details: Town Elevation: 3,937 feet; Peak Elevation: 6,775 feet; Skiable Terrain: 25 miles; Lift Ticket: $27 daily; $26/day for a three-day pass, accessing 111 lifts at 12 resorts in two countries.

Don't Miss: Some of the best cross-country skiing in the world on 125 miles of immaculate tracks that have hosted two Olympics (with Innsbruck) and one World Championships, as well as annual World Cup events.

Best Hotels: Budget-minded travelers should look at Pension Helmut (011-43-5212-3562; $38/night, with breakfast). The Berghof (011-43-5212-2285; $125/night) is a bit more expensive, but includes breakfast and dinner in its price. Immerse yourself in Old Bavaria at the five-star Klosterbrau (011-43-5212-2621-0; $300/night, including breakfast and dinner), a former 16th-century monastery.

Best Restaurants: For tasty, inexpensive Italian, try Luigi & Lois. S'Alte Wirtshaus, a 300-year-old Ziller Valley farmhouse, serves excellent elk ragout at a reasonable price. Going high-end? There is no substitute for the game stew in cream sauce with black nuts, brussel sprouts and cranberry semolina dumplings served at the Ritter Oswald Stube.

Best Nightspot: The Kanne Nightclub regularly features live music.

Outstanding Feature: The peace and quiet. Two highways pass near¿but not through¿the village. And the town center is traffic-free, creating a charming pedestrian core.

Getting There: Seefeld is 25 minutes from Innsbruck airport and 2 hours from Munich International Airport. Rental cars are more reasonable in Munich than Innsbruck by about half. Taxi service to and from the airports can be arranged ahead of time; contact Tyroler Landesreisburo Seefeld, 011-43-5212-2331.
