Trins is a small municipality at 1,233 metres above sea level near the entrance to the Gschnitztal Valley, a side valley branching off the Wipptal Valley. It has a population of around 1,200.
Far from the hustle and bustle of the regional capital Innsbruck, Trins is a haven of peace and quiet. The baroque frescoes on many traditional farmhouses serve as a reminder of the long history of this settlement in the Gschnitztal Valley. High above the village stands the 2,241m Blaser, famous throughout Tirol for its majestic flowers in spring and summer. All in all, the protected area of natural beauty around the three mountains Serles, Habicht and Zuckerhütl is home to 300km of hiking trails.
The landscape is no less spectacular and fascinating in winter. Well-maintained cross-country skiing trails criss-cross the Gschnitztal Valley, while there is a small ski lift for families and beginners in Trins and the larger Bergeralm ski resort at the entrance to the valley.
