Götzens is located on a sunny mountain plateau just seven kilometres outside of 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.

An ideal location between two ski resorts

Götzens is an ideal base for anyone who wants to explore the mountains in winter. Getting up into the mountains is easy thanks to the Nockspitzbahn gondola. The bottom lift station is located directly in the village and is easy to reach on foot. The lift takes you up to Pfriemesköpfl at 1,800 metres above sea level, where you can enjoy views of Nockspitze (the mountain the lift is named after) and the nearby Olympic resort of Axamer Lizum.

The Götzens Ice Sport Centre

This is a place where everything revolves around ice sports. The covered ice rink on the eastern outskirts of the village guarantees ice skating fun regardless of the weather! Very popular and already becoming tradition: the family skate held every Sunday at the Ice Sport Centre in Götzens. Fun and excitement are guaranteed! Other attractions include: ice stock sport, also known as Bavarian curling, which is a popular tradition and leisure activity in the Alps.

The Pilgrimage Church of St Peter and St Paul in Götzens

This church is alluring both architecturally and acoustically. The remarkable Rococo building from the 18th century features artistic stucco work in the interior and has been a popular pilgrimage site since the beatification of the priest and martyr Otto Neururer. The new altar, a memorial plaque and a peace bell were erected in Götzens in his memory and can still be seen there today. The church also holds high-profile concerts organised by the cultural association "Cultura Sacra". The extraordinary acoustics inside the church impress concert-goers and musicians alike. The pilgrimage church is home to a magnificently designed nativity scene and a very rare Passion crib made of paper, which can be viewed at the church during the Easter season.

An ideal location between two hiking destinations

Götzens is located between two hiking resorts: Muttereralm and Axamer Lizum. It is well-worth visiting the idyllic Götzner Alm mountain hut. This popular hiking destination can be reached directly from the village and in winter, it becomes a sought-after natural toboggan run. Anyone looking for more action, should check out the challenging downhill tracks on the Götzens side of Bikepark Innsbruck.
