Standing on the banks of the Inn River, Rattenberg is tucked between the fortress on the hill and the river. The medieval center of Austria’s smallest town is full of revitalized townhouses, cobbled streets and alleyways and dotted by specialist glass shops. In fact, it was the development of the glass industry that brought Rattenberg to the height of its prosperity. Discover a town rich in history, with countless stories to tell. Pop into the Augustine Museum, filled with Tirolese artefacts, view the amazing 12th century Nagelschmied Homes, discover the lovely parish church and visit the glass blowing workshop at Kisslinger House. The pedestrian high street of this most delightful historic town offers good shopping. Relax, indulge yourself and enjoy one of the Konditorei Hacker’s unique yummy pastries - a little gem offering quality and always fresh home-made treats. Spell-binding views of Inntal Valley are waiting to be experienced from the sharp hilltop upon which the castle in ruins sits.
