Grinzens is the westernmost holiday village on the sunny alpine plateau and is known for its enchanting gems, impressive mountain peaks and rural charm. Nestled between the Karwendel and the Kalkkögel mountains, the village of Grinzens has unique 360-degree mountain views.

A tradition of theatre in Grinzens

The village is known for its Sendersbühne theatre group. At the end of the 19th century, the high society of Innsbruck were already travelling to Grinzens for entertainment. Today, commitment and exceptional talent still characterise theatre life in Grinzens. The Sendersbühne theatre association has made a name for itself well beyond the region with its highly regarded open-air performances and Passion Plays. Light entertainment is also not neglected. The comprehensive programme runs year round and includes comedies, children's shows, musicals and sketch evenings.

Grinzens in summer

The Senders Valley in Grinzens is the perfect starting point for hikes and rock climbing tours in the majestic Kalkkögel mountains, the Dolomites of the North. The picturesque Kemater Alm mountain hut and the high-altitude Adolf Pichler Hütte mountain hut are wonderful places to stop for a break or a bite to eat. You can reach the huts easily by car or mountain bike on the well-maintained forest toll road. The Senders Valley has another special attraction: the Salfeinssee. This small mountain lake only reveals itself to visitors when the snow melts or after heavy rainfall.

Grinzens in winter

In winter, the village of Grinzens really shines. The village enjoys an excellent geographic location near the snow-sure ski resort of Axamer Lizum. In the village itself, well-maintained footpaths cross snow-covered meadows and fields, and a small natural ice rink also delights visitors. For tobogganing fans, the absolute highlight is the almost 6-km-long natural toboggan run from the Kemater Alm mountain hut.

Our region is at the heart of a large area of low pressure! What sounds dramatic here will turn out to be harmless: the conditions in the centre of a low are always more stable and calmer than in marginal areas. The day will therefore bring more bright spells and less frequent thunderstorms than yesterday.
