The village is dominated by an impressive complex of buildings: the Cistercian Stams Abbey with its basilica and abbey museum. It is also home to the "Skigymnasium" boarding school, which is considered to be an elite training centre for young skiers. The school has already produced several world and Olympic champions.
Nature lovers appreciate this village for its beautiful scenery. You can, for example, hike along a nature trail through the old trees of the Stams oak forest. Or summon up your courage to venture across the River Inn on the narrow suspension bridge.
