Perched on a sunny plateau overlooking the Lower Inntal Valley, Fritzens is a small village roughly 16km east of the regional capital Innsbruck.
Fritzens is home to around 2,100 inhabitants who are proud of the fact that the village is often said to have the most beautiful flower decorations in the region. Distilling schnapps is another tradition which dates back many centuries and continues to be practised today using local fruit.
Nature lovers will appreciate the beautiful landscape and large netwok of hiking and mountain biking trails leading up into the mountains. There are also a number of Nordic walking trails in the region around Hall and Wattens, the two largest towns in the area. Cycling can explore the Inn Cycle Path, while in winter there is an annual exhibition of hand-carved nativity scenes in Fritzens during the period leading up to Christmas. Nearby Hall in Tirol is well worth a visit. Highlights include the Münzturm museum and the glittering Swarovski Crystal Worlds in neighbouring Wattens.
