St. Sigmund - Praxmar
Mountain air. Adventure. Nature.
Winter from November until May. Exhilarating summers and the best mountain air – low pollen guaranteed. That’s St. Sigmund. Only eight kilometres from the winter sports resort of Kühtai and only 30 kilometres from Innsbruck. Praxmar and Lüsens also belong to the St. Sigmund area but are found in a different valley – accessible via Gries – which is considered to be one of the most beautiful valley heads in Tyrol.
The great mountaineering village of St. Sigmund-Praxmar is situated at an altitude of over 1,500 metres and only has about 170 inhabitants. There isn’t a single shop, bank or post office here – instead you find mountain sports enthusiasts who carry nature in their hearts.
This is a place where mountains are still climbed in the traditional way: Without lifts, cable cars or other climbing aids. Just with willpower and perseverance. This makes the views all the more beautiful, the encounters between man and nature even more special and the well-deserved rest and refreshments all the more enjoyable. In summer and winter alike. Beginners are welcome and are gladly shown how it’s done, for example with a ski touring taster session.

Winter holidays at the pinnacle of the Tyrolean mountains
Ski touring is one of the winter sports that brings people closest to nature. In St. Sigmund-Praxmar – where winter often lasts for half the year – this sport is a way of life
It represents tradition, special adventures and precious time away from it all. Tours scale 3,000-metre-high peaks, traverse demanding ridges and navigate steep slopes. Welcome to a world where nature reigns. Where there are hardly any buildings and very few mountain shelters or places to stop for a break. Just untouched nature.
There are some great ski tours that start from Praxmar and Lüsens. Tours up to the Zischgeles at 3,005 metres or the Lampsenspitze at 2,867 metres offer unforgettable views and varied terrain. Austria’s first educational ski touring trail is also located here: the interactive learning and planning modules interspersed with educational information boards are a delight for ski touring enthusiasts. Ski touring taster courses are also on offer and a highlight for anyone who wants to learn. The Lisenser Fernerkogel at 3,298 metres is considered a masterpiece – and requires a great deal of stamina.
Free snowshoe hikes are offered for nature lovers and snow fans.
