Erl is one of the oldest villages in the Inntal Valley and home to 1,500 residents. Its eye-catching opera house hosts the Festspiele Erl classical music festival once a year as well as the Passionsspiele Erl every four years.
Culture vultures and music lovers may already have heard of Erl. This small village hosts the traditional Passionsspiele passion plays every four years, with the year 2013 marking the 400th anniversary of the first ever performance. The annual Festspiele Erl festival of classical music also attracts visitors from near and far. Erl is in fact the northernmost municipality in Tirol and shares a border with Germany to the north and east. It is considered one of the oldest villages in the Inntal Valley and has a population of around 1,500.
Two of the most iconic mountains in the area, the Kranzhorn and the Spitzstein, offer spectacular views from their summits. Another natural jewel well worth a visit is the "Blaue Quelle" (Blue Spring), where 700 litres of crystal-clear, deep blue water flows out of the mountain every second!
