The Rangger Köpfl and the Zirler Berg mountains characterise Inzing, famous for its Christmas cribs since the 17th century.

Inzing with its 3,500 inhabitants is located at the south riverbank of the Inn. The municipality consists of the properly village as well as several hamlets at the Inzingerberg mountain. Mountains that rise in the surroundings are the 1,939 m high Rangger Köpfl, a popular hiking and skiing area, as well as the 1,057 m high Zirler Berg mountain, which belongs to the Karwendel mountain chain.
Popular destinations for hikes are the Inzinger Alm pasture, the bird reserve Gaisau and the so-called “Themenweg” (theme trail), snaking across the forest and hamlets in the surroundings of the village. Several information panels provide information on various pecularities of this area. Moreover the Inn cycle path snakes along the bottom of the valley, boasting hardly any drops. Not only for the cycle path, but also thanks to the “Inzinger Radsporttage” cycling days with the street and mountain competition that is taking place in the frame of this sports event, Inzing has become a great spot for those who love cycling. Inzing also offers a heated swimming pool. In winter, however, you can either go skiing or tobogganing. Even the World Championships in luge of 1979 were staged at the two natural luge tracks of Inzing. If you would like to ski in the nearby Rangger Köpfl skiing area, simply take the ski shuttle.
Inzing is also interesting for those who prefer culture and arts! Already Johann Wolfgang von Goethe mentioned this village in his masterpiece “Italienische Reisen”, a travel report in which Goethe describes his stays in Italy between September 1786 and May 1788. Worth seeing is the so-called “Schlössl” in the village of Eben. The tower, referred to as “Schlössl” (castle), was built by the Knight of Eben in Late Gothic construction style and converted to historicism at the beginning of the 20th century. The trident, taken from the emblem of the above mentioned knight family, is illustrated on the emblem of the municipality. The colours that are also shown are white and red, reminding on the exceptional performance of the “Schützen” in the freedom fights of Tyrol in 1809. The Baroque parish church, however, strikes above all due to its late Baroque frescoes. Further interesting buildings are the Adelshof farm in Toblaten, that is under monumental protection, as well as the Simlhof farm with adjacent schnaps distillery.
Our recommendation: in the village there are several choirs, theatre groups as well as a band, and for this reason there are also several events taking place. Maybe you can attend one of the concerts?
