Gnadenwald lies at the foot of the Karwendel Alpine Nature Park and is popular with nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike thanks to its sunny location.
The small village of Gnadenwald is home to just under 800 inhabitants and enjoys a sunny position on a plateau overlooking the Inn Valley. Some of the most popular attractions in the surrounding region include the Großer Ahornboden and the Kleiner Ahornboden, two areas with hundreds of impressive chestnut trees, and the Laliderer Wände rockfaces. The Tirolean section of the St. James's Way, a long-distance pilgrimage trail ending in Santiago de Compostella, also passes through Gnadenwald. On hot summer days the short walk to the Fallbach-Wasserfall waterfall is an ideal way to cool off. Those in search of a little more action and adventure can try paragliding and hanggliding.
In winter there are 10 kilometres of well-prepared cross-country skiing trails as well as a toboggan run that is ideal for families. An annual highlight in winter is the "Fassdauben-Rennen", where young farmers swap their skis for old barrels and embark on a hair-raising descent down the mountain.
