Although Serfaus may not be the most famous destination it is one of the hidden gems of Austria and an incredible town for a skiing or snowboarding trip. The tiny town in the Tyrol region is easily accessible by a short drive from the Innsbruck airport and offers an idealistic setting for a winter getaway.
Neighbored by Fiss and Ladis, these tiny towns sit atop a quiet mountain that offers a fantastically quaint village. The tiny town does actually also have a subway that travels beneath the town’s main street from the visitor’s parking lot to the opposite end of the town, where you can gain access to the mountain and ski lifts. Most visitors to the town tend to be from Germany or the Netherlands, with surprisingly few American or British tourists.
Skiing in Serfaus
Skiing and snowboarding are the main attraction for Serfaus in the winter months, offering up to 42 gondola and ski lift options when weather permits. The trails offer a wide range of options for various skill levels. There are also options for ski lessons, snow tubing, and more.
Nightlife & Dinging
The village of Serfaus also kicks off for apres-ski when the time comes to relax after a long day on the mountain, with a rowdy crowd filling up the pubs and bars that surround the bottom of the mountain. For a very small town, Serfaus has a wide range of options for bars and restaurants, with The George Pub being a favorite for a lively crowd late into the evening.
Most of the accommodations within the town of Serfaus are booked only by the week and can fill up quickly during the peak seasons so be sure to search for your accommodation early if you want to be able to stay within the town.
