The small municipality of Gschnitz is home to 425 inhabitants and lies at the end of the Gschnitztal Valley, a side valley branching off westwards from the Wipptal Valley. The towering Habicht mountain (3,277 m) high above the valley floor forms the border between North Tirol in Austria and South Tirol in Italy.
Surrounded on all sides by majestic mountains, this traditional Tirolean village is ideal for sport and relaxation. Its ancient farmhouses, some of which are decorated with baroque frescoes, bear witness to the centuries-old history of this settlement. Well worth a visit is the Mühlendorf Gschnitz, a series of water-driven mills showing how people in this region would have lived and worked hundreds of years ago.
