Söll is a municipality with 3571 inhabitants in the district of Kufstein in the Austrianregion of Sölllandl. It is located 9 km south of Kufstein as well as 9 km east of Wörgl.
Söll is one of the principal ski-holiday villages of the region Ski Welt Wilder Kaiser. It is located beneath the conical Hohe Salve peak, the highest point in the ski area. The Hohe Salve also offers black and red classified ski runs as well as ski routes from the top lift station. The Hohe Salve has a church located on its peak as well as a mountain restaurant that features a revolving terrace, offering a panoramic view of the region. Further ski holiday resorts in the Ski Welt Wilder Kaiser region are Itter, Scheffau, Ellmau, Going, Brixen and Hopfgarten. A new lift opened for the 2008/09 ski season that linked Brixen to Westendorf and furthermore to Kitzbühel, thus creating one of the biggest ski regions in the world. After dark Söll offers apres-ski with slope-side bars offering dancing and drinking until late in the night. In some cases, ski buses are necessary to reach the ski lifts from the accommodation.
There are several sights in Söll:
- The parish church Saint Peter and Paul was built 1764-1768 in a Baroque style. It is in the old village center.
- Typical traditional tyrolean architecture can be seen in Main Street. Some houses have sightworthy wall paintings, e.g. the old inn Postwirt.
- Pilgrimage church Das Wallfahrtskirchlein am Stampfanger.
- War memorial (German: Kriegerdenkmal) referring to a battle of the Napoleonic wars on 13 May 1809 which took place near Söll. The memorial is at the end of walking track in the North of the village.
Söll is part of the “Ski Welt” area, the largest interconnected ski area in the whole of Austria, and it boasts around 250km of downhill ski trails. It is now possible to connect to the resort of Kitzbuehel from Westendorf (ski welt) thanks to a new gondola that has been constructed, although it is only possible to ski this area with the “Kitzbuehler Alpen” ski pass.
Après-ski comes from the French for “After Skiing” but is now used universally and refers to the socializing that is popular after a days skiing ends. When the sun goes down is when the ski resorts come alive and enjoying a steaming mug of hot Chocolate laced with rum or a glass of hot Gluhwein whilst watching the sunset over the snow covered mountain peaks is a memory which will last a life-time.
