Let's hear it for nature!
Only about 20 villages in Austria have been classified as "mountaineering villages". The villages of Sellrain, Gries im Sellrain and St. Sigmund im Sellrain belong to this exclusive circle. They are all located 20 to 30 kilometres away from Innsbruck and give visitors access to a world of alpine wonder full of natural flair. Being a mountaineering village means: alpine character, original surroundings and archaic charm. It also stands for regeneration, pristine nature and authenticity – far away from après-ski and cable cars. Here nature is allowed to be nature. The mountaineering villages are located between over 1,200 and 1,500 metres above sea level and are surrounded by the most beautiful mountain peaks. Yet they are still only 30 minutes away from Innsbruck.
