The municipality of Mutters lies on a mountain plateau between the Wipptal Valley and the the Stubaital Valley, just a few kilometres south of Innsbruck.
Its 2,100 inhabitants enjoy the best of both worlds: an unspoilt landscape just a short drive from the city. The village itself is made up of large farmhouses and pretty flowers, so it is little wonder that it has earned itself the title of the “Most Beautiful Village in Tirol”. High above towers the mighty Nockspitze (2,404 m) and, a little further below, the cosy Mutterer Alm hut. This iconic mountain is a paradise for hikers in summer and a popular ski resort in winter, while also attracting many ski touring enthusiasts. Visitors interested in local history can visit the "Schupfenwirt" inn in Mutters. It was there that Andreas Hofer, the leader of the Tirolean freedom fighters who successfully defended their homeland against Napoleonic troops in 1809, set up his general headquarters. On hot summer days there is no better place to cool off than in the village’s own open-air swimming pool or the nearby Lake Natterer See.
