Götzens - friendly and sporty with a rich history

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 Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul in Götzens is both magnificent and charming at the same time. It too dates back to this early period and is now a place of pilgrimage. The Vellenberg castle ruins also have a few years "under their belt". The ruins were once the seat of a court and, in the 15th century, were home to the famous minnesinger Oswald von Wolkenstein. Today, Götzens is a family-friendly and sporty holiday destination. Facilities in the village include, for example, the Nockspitzbahn gondola and the Ice Sport Centre, which guarantee great mountain experiences and fun leisure activities, especially in winter. The surrounding mountain peaks are perfect for sporty hikes year in, year out.

An ideal location between two skiing and hiking destinations

Götzens is an ideal starting point for anyone who wants to explore the mountains. You can travel uphill in comfort on 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, or the nearby Olympic resort of Axamer Lizum. The Nockspitzbahn is part of the Muttereralm ski and hiking area and provides access to lots of different hikes and two cool, challenging Götzens downhill tracks that are part of Bikepark Innsbruck. A trip to the idyllic Götzner Alm mountain hut is also highly recommended. This popular hiking destination can be reached directly from the village and turns into a sought-after natural toboggan run in winter.

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.
