Serfaus

An amazing Tyrolean village in that, in addition to a history dating back to 1500BC, a lovely atmosphere and first-rate skiing, it has its own underground railway system. Not bad for a population of 1127! Especially good facilities for children.

Since 2005 the village has been jointly promoted with neighbouring Fiss and Ladis. The three villages in the Inn Valley are located in one of the sunniest areas in the Tyrol, clocking up more than 2000 hours of sunshine each year.

The resulting winter sports paradise Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis with its three historical villages is located on a sunny high plateau above the Tyrolean Inn Valley, framed by the mighty 3000-metre Samnaun mountains and the Ötztal Alps. Here winter sports fans have the choice of 214 km of ski runs, 52 km of cross-country skiing trails - groomed daily -, 68 ski lifts, freeride slopes, terrain parks, and the whole gamut of winter fun sports.
