The Hohe Salve dominates the village of Soll in the Wilder Kaiser valley. It is the highest point in the BergWelt at some 1900m. During our panoramaweg walk from the Hartkaiser in Ellmau it seemed so near but with the paths meandering around the meadows it took a good 4 hours to reach Hochsoell where the mid cable-car station whisks you up to the...more
The sunset over the endless peaks of the alps is a one of a kind experience.Take the last gondola to Hohe Salve and wait till the sun sets down....If you are lucky to have some clowds, it will make the view even more beautiful...Warning - once the sun has hit the horizon, it gets dark very fast - make sure you know your way down. Bring a lamp with...more
A short 15 minute detour from the village centre of Soell leads to a small lake - the Moorsee. From the centre of Soll go right at the mini golf course pass it and take the road that goes up through the forest to the small lake. Should only take about 15 mins to reach it. It didn't look the best of places for a swim - perhaps they clean it up a bit...more
At Hochsoell if you are able its worth taking the circular path that contours around the 4 Alms or alpine meadows: Stoecklalm, Salvenmoos, Hochsoell and Gruendlalm.Should take about an hour but much longer if you linger to enjoy the various activities like the Hexenwasser pools (see later) the wood carving and local farming displays of traditional...more
The alpine panorama at the top of the Hohe Salve was even more impressive than I had remembered from our visit some years ago. The plentiful snow from the preceding winter was still evident on the high peaks and added to the panoramc vista. A 30 minute stroll on a path around the summit is available and boards will indicate the mountains you can...more
Just by the gondola station half way up the Hohe Salve is the "Hexenwasser" or Witches water path which consists of about 30 stations dealing with the topic of "water" in different ways: For example, there is a Kneipp basin, a barefoot path, a water maze - endless fun for kids and especially so on a hot spring day, it was a great way to cool off.more
At 1829 meters altitude, on the summit of the Hohe Salve, is Austria's highest situated church, the "Salvenkirchlein". The origins of this church are cloaked in numerous legends and sagas. Inside the porch area the walls are covered with pictures amd memorials to loved ones who have passed away.more
This was my first visit to Soll and apparently this place has just opened this season, it was always pretty busy when i was there so not sure if this was just because it is new, however i thought it was a fantastic place, the Sports bar was the best place i found in Soll to watch the footie by miles as it has a massive plasma tv above the bar that...more
Great little spot in Soll. Was there in January 2003. Was then co-owned by two ski instructors an English guy (Bret) and a Croatian (Nick). Smallest bar you'll probably squeeze into but worth it . . . great apres ski craic . . . You could walk in with your skis on if you wanted to . . .more
The first stage gondola to the Hohe Salve summit takes you from Soell to Hochsoell. The gondola station is set back some 500m from the village centre on the opposite side of the main road. Use the road underpass to cross it safely. At Hochsoell there are many walking path around the meadows here, wood carvings and local farm industry to see.Even...more
I missed the last lift for the day , and had to climb up with my board to Hohe Salve ,so I can come back to Soll.The whole ascent of the black run ( you can see the moguls ) took me about 50 minutes to accomplish.
This crucifix is a little at the side of the slope ,but I thought it would make an interesting pic as you find them at the most unexpected places.
Several path in this area are alo accessible to mountain bikes - best way in my opinon is to take the bike up in the gondola (this is allowed at several gondolas in the Bergwelt region) and then ride down. However some also see it as a way of exercising their dogs - enlage the pics and you will see a bike being pulled by two husky dogs!more
Of course if you are feeling energetic or have a phobia about cable-cars, then walking down to Brixen would take 2-3 hours - probably hard going on the knees though!On the way down you'll pass Lake Filzalmsee in Hochbrixen, Tyrol's largest reservoir with an expanse of water measuring 2 hectares. A feature at lake Filzalmsee is the Nordic walking...more
At Hochsoell there is a witches path, called Hexenweg, which looked intiguing - not a long walk about 45 minutes - just follow these signs! Also the witches water path, the Hexenwasser, a 450 m long path which leads from the cable car to the Stöcklalm pasture, had 30 fun stations dealing with the topic of "water" in different ways: For example,...more
