Home to around 800 residents, Kolsassberg offers visitors and locals alike stunning views of the Inntal Valley and the Karwendel Mountains.
The small village of Kolsassberg lies at 906 metres above sea level on the western slopes of the Weerbachtal Valley. Although it is closely connected to the neighbouring municipality of Kolsass, Kolsassberg is a municipaity on its own right. Its most recognisable landmark is the Burgruine Rettenberg. These castle ruins are privately owned, but on the third weekend in July they are opened up to the public for the Schlossfest celebration. The area around Kolsassberg is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. The Rote Wand mountain overlooking the village tempts those with high ambitions, while in winter there is a small ski lift for children and beginners. There is also a toboggan run starting at the Jausenstation Gartlach and served by a shuttle bus service.
