What's going on near the *****Hotel Bergland in Sölden?
Events & Highlights
From the traditional opening event of the FIS Ski World Cup to the spectacular reenactment of the Hannibal legend and the famously challenging Ötztal Bike Marathon, there is plenty going on in party hotspot Sölden throughout the year.
We have put together an overview of the best events in and around Sölden.
The spectacular Hannibal show in Sölden is arguably one of the greatest live events in the world. Every two years an army of dancers, skiers, base jumpers and motocross riders take to the ice supported by piste groomers, skidoos, planes and helicopters to create a magical spectacle on the Rettenbachferner at 3,000 metres above sea level.
It tells the story of Hannibal's legendary crossing of the Alps on foot. Around 2,200 years ago one of the greatest commanders in history set out with 60,000 men to capture the city of Rome. Today it is the team from lawine torrèn which brings this story back to life every two years.
