Summer visitors: the first tourists in Oberperfuss

Summer visitors: the first tourists in Oberperfuss

The history of Oberperfuss as a tourist destination started with seasonal visitors looking for a rural break from urban life coming to stay at the holiday homes and visit the guesthouse with its shady garden. The first summer visitors came mainly from Innsbruck, but some even made the journey from Munich. Anton Niederkircher from Hotel Krone was a pioneer of tourism in Oberperfuss. The picture shows Dorfgasse lane with innkeeper Anna Niederkircher on the left and Anton Niederkircher with guests on the right.

Oberperfuss in around 1900, a popular spa resort

Oberperfuss in around 1900, a popular spa resort

By the turn of the century, Oberperfuss had established a reputation as a spa and bathing resort. The picture show the Biersack family and the Hechfellner family from Munich enjoying coffee and cake together in the shady orchard.

According to Tyrol's "Verkehrs- und Hotelbuch", the tourism and accommodation guide at the time, the "Verschönerungsverein Bad Oberperfuss" was the place to contact for information on the village and its attractions. A medicinal spring in the Dickicht district and the nearby bathhouse enhanced Oberperfuss' status as a spa resort. By the end of the 19th century, the town had become so popular among its tourists – summer visitors and spa guests – that a tourist information centre, then known as the "Verschönerungsverein", was founded in 1901. Although Oberperfuss is no longer a spa resort today, it still boasts one of the most stunning natural landscapes in the whole of Tyrol.

Art and culture

Oberperfuss was home to the well-known cartographers Peter Anich and Blasius Hueber, who built their own surveying equipment and used it to create the first exact map of Tyrol: the Atlas Tyrolensis. The museum is dedicated to their work and also includes numerous sundials. Some of their other sundials can still be admired in the village and the surrounding area during your stay today.
