The village Angerberg and its ancient farms, located in the heart of the Inntal valley, has been mentioned for the first time in 1190 AD. Until December 1981 the village used to be called Unterangerberg. Seeking a thrill? In the village, there’s the water sports school and outdoor academy “Get Wet Adventures”.
Angerberg is a popular destination for cyclists and hikers, as the local mountain Buchacker with the Hundalm ice cave is located close. This only ice and drip-stone cave of Tyrol is a real nature jewel! Already since 1956 it has been under natural protection, and in the mid 1960s scientists started investigating in this cave. Today the Hundalm ice cave is a show cave with some dripstones dating back to about 350,000 years. In the surroundings of Angerberg, there is also the Eagle Walk, one of the main long-distance hiking trails of Tyrol with a length of 413 km. Every year, there is a respective feast taking place at the Buchacker mountain, including a mass, a traditional “Frühschoppen” as well as live music and entertainment.
