The municipal area of Münster includes the 2,224 m high Vorderes Sonnwendjoch mountain and Lake Zireiner

Altitude: 534 m a.s.l.

Münster extends on a little rise at the foot of the Rofan Mountains, and includes the hamlets Asten, Grünsbach and Habach as well as the Lichtenwerth and Lipperheide Castles, located on the opposite site of the Inn river. Its coat of arms shows a dancer flanked by two gloves, referring to the local custom of the "Handschuhtanz", so to speak the "Dance of the Gloves", taking place every year on Whitmonday: The best and most beautiful dancer gets a pair of gloves...

Particularly attracting are the mountain world surrounding Münster, including Mt. Vorderes Sonnwendjoch (2,224 m a.s.l.) and the 2,259 m high Rofanspitze with Lake Zireiner. It is considered to be the "Jewel of the Rofan" and is the most photographed mountain lake of Tyrol. Mt. Rofanspitze is reflected in the waters of the lake, changing colours depending on the weather. In the village itself you may relax in the outdoor pool with its 5,000 sqm large lawn for sunbathing.

In winter, the skiing areas of the Zillertal valley and the Ski Jewel Alpbachtal Wildschönau provide fun and action on hundreds of km of slopes. For variety, you will find also three cross-country tracks and the 4.3 km long toboggan run Höllenstein, which is illuminated in the lower part, in the village. Furthermore, Münster with its Hauserwirt - the largest stud farm of the area - invites you to a ride or a horse-drawn sledge ride across the snow-covered landscape.
