The village of Patsch lies at the heart of a wonderful natural landscape. The highest point of the municipality is the 2,246 m high Patscherkofel, which is an alpine paradise for enjoyable mountain hikes such as the exceptional and renowned Zirbenweg trail. The alpine garden on Patscherkofel is ideal for flower lovers. It is the largest botanical garden in Austria and features over 400 different native plants.

For example, on an evening walk through the colourful meadows of Rosengarten Nature Reserve.
In addition to the numerous options for hiking and biking, you can also get to know the local flora.
Or explore mystical history, which is possible thanks to the archaeological excavations at Goldbichl.

During carnival, you can experience the traditional side of Patsch with carnival characters such as Huttler, Zottler and Schellenschlager. However, there is one very special difference: here the women also play a role. Carnival traditions in Tyrol are usually firmly in male hands but the women in Patsch have changed that. They are behind the "Schellenschlagen" carnival event, which is the traditional ringing of the cowbells in Patsch. The event brings the village to a standstill and transforms it into one big carnival celebration.
