Gallzein Sommer
Gallzein Sommer


A popular destination is the Path of 10 Chapels, which takes you from Gallzein to Schwaz and back across meadows and forests

Altitude: 825 m a.s.l.

Gallzein is located in idyllic position at the northern spur of the Tux Alps. Probably the name derives from the Rhaeto-Romanic word "collacino", which means "little hill". And still today, the small holiday resort presents itself in this way: It is accessible via Schwaz or Buch in Tirol, and the almost 2,000 m high Gratzenjoch mountain rises above the village amidst the hills. In former centuries, Gallzein was one of the centres of mining at Schwaz.

Two beautiful hiking paths await you here: One of them is called 10 Kapellen-Weg. It is the Path of 10 Chapels between Schwaz and Gallzein, which goes - as its name reveals - past 10 chapels, more or less dating back to the mining period. The other one is the 12 km long Hochgallzein Round Tour, which takes you through the Gallzein low mountain range and past some idyllic hamlets.

Also in winter, Gallzein with its crystal clear mountain air is a popular holiday destination for those who seek a calm and relaxing area. The Kellerjoch Skiing Area as well as the Burglift Stans and the Schwannerlifte Weerberg ski lifts are all located within easy reach. However, that's far from being all: Also the 2.5 km long toboggan run Koglmoosalm promises pure fun. First you can warm up in the Koglmoos Mountain Hut, and then you can enjoy the beautiful winter landscape.
