Schlitters is a charming village made up of houses and farmsteads dotted across the landscape close to the start of the Zillertal Valley at an altitude of 548 m.
The village includes Schlitterberg, which lies around 400 metres higher up and can only be reached via Rotholz in the Inn Valley. The 1,400 inhabitants enjoy an excellent quality of life with plenty of outdoor sports and activities to choose from. In summer the idyllic swimming lake with a tennis court, football pitch and adventure playground is a popular meeting place. Another great spot to cool off is the Schlitterer Wasserfall waterfall at the end of the Öxelbachtal Valley. Schlitters itself has a comprehensive network of walking, hiking and mountainbiking trails. In winter it is just a short drive to the large Zillertal Arena ski resort. Popular attractions in the Zillertal Valley include the Zillertalbahn steam railway.
