St. Sigmund is a peaceful mountain village in the Sellraintal Valley perched at 1,513 metres above sea level. Home to just 170 inhabitants, it has a long tradition of farming and is the highest municipality in the Sellraintal Valley, a side valley branching off the Inntal Valley into the Stubai Alps.
The nearby village of Praxmar at the end of the Lüsenstal Valley is popular with hikers in summer and ski touring enthusiasts in winter. The end of this narrow valley is dominated by the mighty Lüsener Fernerkogel mountain stretching 3,298 metres up into the sky. Although St. Sigmund is relatively unknown as a tourist destination, it still offers plenty of options for visitors interested in hiking, ski touring and rock climbing. Many of the trails and paths are suitable for families with children. The Glacier Trail is an educational hike with several information stations telling walkers about the creation and history of the glaciers high above. There is also a Ski Touring Trail on the nearby Lampsenspitze mountain and a Nature Experience Trail in Praxmar. Other popular walks include those to the Sonnenbergalm and the Gleirschalm huts. In winter there are many cross-country skiing trails to explore, while it is just a short drive to the popular ski resort in Kühtai. In summer the Sellrain High Trail at 2,000 metres above sea level is the perfect way to admire the landscape from above.
