The holiday resort Kolsassberg rises above the village of Kolsass in the Kolsasstal valley and extends up to the summits of the Tux Alps. The municipality includes the component localities Ausserberg, Innerberg, Hochhäuser and Merans. It is accessible via the road from Kolsass, leading on into the Weerbachtal valley to the Sagalm Mountain Hut (1,712 m a.s.l.).
Along this road - more precisely between Kolsass and Kolsassberg - there is the ruin of Rettenberg Castle. A legend tells, that a farmer searched in vain his flock of sheep, until he found it in the Rettenberg castle ruin. All sheep had died, when suddenly the farmer perceived a voice telling him that this was not his territory. According to the legend, the voice belonged to an old shepherd who went around in the form of a ghost, punishing the farmer for his laziness.
Kolsassberg is a perfect starting point for outdoor activities all year round: Many hiking paths take you to beautiful destinations such as the Weidener Refuge (1,799 m a.s.l.) and the Nafing Mountain Hut. Furthermore, via the Geiseljoch pass (2,292 m a.s.l.) you can reach the Tuxertal and Zillertal valleys. In winter, Kolsassberg offers two ski lifts and the toboggan runs Gartlach and Nafing.
