Angath is a small rural village along the Inn river. The municipality is composed of the eponymous main village and five further localities, and represents with only 3.5 sqkm one of the smallest in the district of Kufstein. In the 15th and 16th century, Angath was one of the centres of the Tyrolean navigation on the Inn and the centre of shipbuilding: The main haves were Hall in Tirol, Angath and Langkampfen. Until the Inn had been regulated, also the only larger island was located here.

Today, in Angath you can experience ancient customs - concerts of the local band and cultural evenings take place on a regular basis and are always well visited. Worth to be visited is also the Holy Spirit Parish Church on the southern edge of the village, which was first mentioned in 1220 AD. The present Baroque building dates back to 1746-47 and to the master builder Jakob Singer.

High above the village, in summer the Buchacker or Hundalm Ice Cave awaits you. It is located on the municipal area of the neighbouring Angerberg and represents one of many hiking destinations in the Kitzbühel Alps. The Inn Cycle Route leads past Angath down in the valley. In winter, however, the village is located in close vicinity to the mighty SkiWorld Wilder Kaiser-Brixental.
