Hike Götzner Alm/Muttereralm/Mutters
Götzens is located on a sunny mountain plateau just seven kilometres away from Innsbruck. The village is home to several listed farmhouses from the 17th and 18th centuries. A special feature: the "Mittertennhof" style farms with their characteristic gables and bay windows. The weathered circular wall of the Vellenberg castle ruins also has a few years "under its belt". The current residential building is from the 20th century and overlooks the surrounding landscape from a hill at the entrance to the village. The old walls were once used as a court and, in the 15th century, they were home to Oswald von Wolkenstein, the famous minnesinger with only one eye. An earthquake destroyed the building in the 17th century and today it is privately owned.
Götzens is an ideal starting point for anyone who wants to explore the mountains. The bottom lift station of the Nockspitzbahn cable car is located right in the village. The lift takes you up to Pfriemesköpfl at 1,800 metres above sea level, where you can enjoy views of the mountain the cable car is named after – the Nockspitze. The Nockspitzbahn lift is part of Muttereralm, a ski resort and hiking destination.
