The municipality of Fließ lies on a plateau 200 metres above the Inntal Valley, in the heart of the Kaunergrat Nature Park, just a few kilometres south-east of Landeck.
Around 2,900 people live here at the foot of the 2,225m Krahberg mountain. The village of Fließ itself can be seen for many miles around thanks to the mighty dovetail turrets at Bidenegg Castle and the new parish church with its double tower façade rarely found in villages of this size. However, the main claim to fame of this municipality on the Via Claudia Augusta is its rich archaeological heritage, including finds of clothing, jewellery and weapons dating back to the Hallstatt Period in the 1st century BC as well as a Rhaetian sacrificial site at the nearby Piller Höhe. A number of the finds are on display in the Museum Fließ. One of the village’s churches also contains the remains of the oldest church in the region, dating back to the 6th century. In winter there is the small ski resort Landeck-Zams-Fließ, while in summer visitors will find plenty of trails for hiking and mountain biking as well as an educational walking trail up to the high areas of moorland above the village.
