"Strolls around Soell" Söll by sandysmith

Söll Travel Guide: 36 reviews and 72 photos

Soell is a popular little Austrian tyrol village not too far from Ellmau where we were based. Frescoed hotels prettify the centre but what I remembered most was a short walk on the village outskirts to the little Moorsee for a favoured reflection picture :-))

Back in 2011 for a visit - road works were the order of the day as a new by-pass was being built - should be finished by the winter season though.

Soell is dominated by the Hohe Salve peak - reached easily by a 2-stage gondola - with its wonderful 360 degree alpine panorama.

Half way up the Hohe Salve at Hochsoell is "Hexenwasser" an unusual series of water features which looked great fun for all ages.

    Austria is one of the most beautful, scenic countries I've ever been to! Söll seems to be perfect alpine paradise! In spite of the Hexenweg! ;-) Great page!

    Moorsee looks lovely but a bit over the top on the gondolas. ;P Looks like you saved your good May weather for the hiking rather than our beery excursion to Salzburg!

    I've never heard about Söll before, but the scenery looks breathtaking. I must admit I like the new 8-seater gondolas better than the old ones :-)
