Weerberg is a settlement at the foot of the Gilfert, a 2,506 m mountain popular in winter with ski touring enthusiasts. It lies on a raised plateau overlooking the Lower Inntal Valley.
Thanks to the village’s position at almost 900 metres above sea level it offers excellent views as far as Innsbruck to the west and the impressive Karwendel Mountains on the other side of the valley to the north. Around 2,400 people live in a number of small settlements strung out along the mountainside. At the heart of the village stands the Mariä Empfängnis church, whose two spires can be seen from afar. Also well worth a visit is the Museum Rablhaus, a local history museum showcasing everyday life in this traditional farming community over the centuries. Mountain bikers come to Weerberg to take on the steep ascent from the Pill on the floor of the Inntal Valley via Weerberg up to the Weidener Hütte hut, while walkers enjoy the trail along the Weerbach stream which crosses over two hanging bridges. In winter there are two ski lifts for beginners in Weerberg as well as no fewer than five toboggan runs. Intermediate and advanced skiers will find more challenging terrain in the nearby Glungezer resort.
