Unterperfuss is one of Innsbruck's holiday villages in the Inn Valley. Both in terms of surface area and inhabitants, the village is considered to be one of the smallest municipalities of Tyrol. The coat of arms of the municipality illustrates a blue swell as a symbol for the Inn river, as well as a red waterwheel: The latter refers to the patron saint of the village, Saint Catherine.
The surroundings are mainly rural with acres and meadows and offer great hiking paths and cycle trails. Among them there are the Inn Cycle Route and the famous Way of St. James: Along the stage near Unterperfuss you can admire a sundial, a chapel as well as a cistern dating back to the Middle Ages. Furthermore there are several riding stables in the village, such as the "Reiterhof zum Penz", which is often venue for important horse riding events. In the neighbouring Oberperfuss, however, start the lift facilities to the Rangger Köpfl Hiking and Skiing Area with the Stiglreith Viewpoint.
Besides the Rangger Köpfl Skiing Area, Unterperfuss is surrounded also by other skiing areas in winter, including the ones around the Alpine City of Innsbruck.
