Kramsach is located along the north riverside of the Inn. In the hamlet Hagau, which is part of the municipality, white-rose marmor has been quarried since Middle Ages. This special kind of marble was used in many churches as well as for the building of the St. Anna Column in Innsbruck. Beside fishing in the Reintal Lakes, stone-cutting was one of the main economic branches in the past.
Today Kramsach is a holiday resort, which offers many interesting highlights. Among them there is the Tyrolean Farmhouse Museum, the largest open-air museum of Tyrol, which exhibits various forms of Tyrolean farms as well as old domestic breeds. Furthermore you can visit the park with the sculptures of the artist Alois Schild on the banks of the Brandenberger Ache river, and the probably most interesting because most bizarre museum: the Cemetery Museum Kramsach, the "Jolly Cemetery without any dead persons" with its forged grave crosses with quirky inscriptions.
In summer, the above mentioned Brandenberger Ache and the six lakes around Kramsach - Lake Krummsee, Lake Reintaler, Lake Berglsteiner, Lake Buchsee, Lake Frauensee and Lake Zireiner - attract people from all over. But besides swimming, the waters invite you also to try tube riding, kayaking and rafting. In winter, however, there is the Ski Jewel Alpbachtal Wildschönau in the surroundings, and a ski lift for beginners as well as an ice rink are located directly in the village.
