Hatting, a calm holiday resort in the surroundings of Innsbruck, is located along the famous Way of St. James.
Altitude: 616 m a.s.l.
Hatting can be found in the Inn Valley: In its original layout, the village traces back to the ancient Salt Road from Kematen to Telfs. Today, it extends on the edge of a wood and is getting more and more popular, above all with families. Pleasant tours make you experience the beauty of the North Tyrolean mountains. The Way of St. James, a European long-distance trail, leads past the village.
This pilgrimage trail, which ends at the tomb of Saint James at Santiago di Compostela in the north east of Galicia in Spain, is also suitable for a day excursion. A possible tour starts at Inzing and takes you to Hatting, farther on to Polling, Flaurling, Oberhofen, Pfaffenhofen, Rietz, Stams, Mötz and to Haiming, whereas the walk may end at any of the above mentioned villages. If you would like to make a MTB-tour into the world of mountains, we warmly recommend you to cycle to the Archbrand Mountain Hut, on a 10 km long trail on asphalt and gravel path.
Probably the most significant sight of the village is the local parish church, the history of which is is not completely revealed. Originally dedicated to St. Tertulin, later on it was dedicated to St. Giles - that is what is documented in the village chronicles. In parts the Gothic construction style is still recognizable, even if the church was repeatedly altered in the course of time. Worth noticing are also the Gothic frescoes in the interior, which were laid open some decades ago.
