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.
