Pill

Together with the town of Schwaz, Pill offers you in winter the Kellerjoch Skiing Area, one of the most traditional ones of Tyrol.

Altitude: 556 m a.s.l.

Pill is located in the close surroundings of Schwaz at the foot of the detritic cone of the Pillbach river. The component localities Niederberg, Pillberg and Hochpillberg are spread over the slopes of the 2,344 m high Kellerjoch, the local mountain of Pill. Once upon a time, the area was marshland, but was transformed into fertile soil in the 18th and 19th century after the Inn river regulation.

One of the main sights of Pill is the St. Anna Church with its bulbous spire. The precious ceiling frescoes dating back to 1767 were established by Christoph Anton Mayr (1720-1771), a Tyrolean rococo painter. Only 4 km away, the town of Schwaz awaits you with its shopping facilities and sights such as the famous silver mine, the knight's castle Freundsberg and the Zeiss Planetarium.

Pill is an ideal starting point for cycling tours and pleasant promenades on several theme paths. The Grafenast mountain swimming pool, a riding stable and tennis courts provide fun and action in summertime. If you aim higher, the Kellerjoch Cable Car takes you to Mt. Kellerjoch, one of the most beautiful panoramic mountains of the Tux Alps. In case of good weather conditions you can see to Munich, Italy, Switzerland and the Arlberg. In winter, the mountain turns into a skiing area with 14 km of ski runs, an 9.2 km long natural toboggan run and a nordic cross-country ski trail.
