This village of about 2,000 souls is located right in the heart of the North Tyrolean Alps, in the Olympic Region Seefeld.

Altitude: 1,130 m asl

26 quaint little hamlets form the municipality of Leutasch, which is located in the Olympic Region Seefeld in a high valley close to the border to Bavaria. This village is above all popular due to the typical “Lüftlmalerei”, a handicraft method of wall-painting, which originally comes from Bavaria and Tyrol. This type of paintings involve a fresco-technique applied to freshly laid plaster. A wonderful photo motif!

Other great photo motifs are the mountains in the Alpine Park Karwendel, the Wetterstein mountain chain and the nature reserve Wildmoos. On 650 km of hiking paths in the region you can discover lush meadows, alpine pastures and cool mountain streams on foot. After an active day, recreation and relaxation are guaranteed in Leutasch, for example in the Alpine bath Leutasch. Relax your muscles in the stream bath, the waterfall or the grotta.

In winter, however, perfectly suitable for beginners is the ski lift Neuleutasch. The lift facility is part of the Olympic Region Seefeld skiing area, a ski carousel which includes five skiing areas and offers 44 km of ski slopes and 31 lift facilities. In the valley you can explore the different cross-country ski tracks and the winter hiking trails.

Our recommendation: the Leutaschklamm gorge, a ravine where a ghost is waiting for visitors! This gorge can be explored on two different paths. And don’t forget: beware of the ghost!
