Visitors can stroll through the picturesque streets and experience traditional Tyrolean charm. Rietz is nicknamed "Kirchendorf" (Church Village) for its beautiful churches. The pilgrimage church of St Anthony is particularly popular for weddings. 

The inhabitants of Rietz place great value on local traditions and they demonstrate this in an impressive way every three years when the carnival celebrations take centre stage. Rietz is also well-worth a visit for gourmets. The village is located directly on the Cycle & Savour cycle route, which is lined with local producers and excellent schnapps distillers.

The Pilgrimage Church of St Anthony

The pilgrimage church is a popular wedding venue. It sits on a hill in Rietz and can be seen from afar. The hill is also home to Rietz' Kalvarienberg (or calvary hill).

Mair's Beerengarten

This family business specialises in growing berries on the Tyrolean slopes. The Mair family grow berries in their own fruit gardens and then processes the ripe fruit to create products such as jams, syrups, brandies and liqueurs, which are sold in their farm shop. In summer, the welcoming Hofcafé also invites you to relax and enjoy.
