Nassereith is a holiday village in the pretty Gurgltal Valley to the south of the Fernpass. . The main feature of this village with a population of just over 2,000 is its church with a mighty spire.
Nassereith lies around 13 km from Imst, the largest town in the region. A road running east along the old salt trading route leads up towards the Holzleitensattel pass and the sunny Mieming Plateau, an area excellent for hiking and mountain biking. In nearby Dormitz, which forms part of the same municipality, there is a late gothic pilgrimage church which is one of the oldest of its kind in the Tiroler Oberland. The residents of Nassereith are famous for their customs and traditions, many of which have been passed down through the generations for centuries. They include colourful celebrations such as the “Schellerlaufen”, a spectacular carnival procession held in the village every three years. Attractions in the surrounding region include the ruins of the Sigmundsburg castle as well as two mountain lakes, the Nassereither See and the Fernsteinsee, with the latter particularly popular with divers. Up near the Fernpass visitors will find the Afrigal Nature Park with its protected mountain pine forests. In winter there is the family-friendly Dormitz toboggan run as well as two ski resorts in nearby Imst and Grubigstein.
