Langkampfen and its six component localities Oberlangkampfen, Niederbreitenbach, Unterlangkampfen, Morsbach, Au and Schaftenau are located at the sunny side of the Inn river. About 3,500 people inhabit the municipal area, part of which is also Lake Stimmersee below the Pendling mountain (1,563 m asl). In summer Lake Stimmersee is a popular lake for swimming, while a trail takes promenaders round this lake. By the way, the lake is also a popular starting point for hikes to the Dreibrunnenjoch mountain, to the village Thiersee or to the Pendling mountain.
Langkampfen is an active village, not last due to the large number of hiking trails snaking in the surroundings, which are also awarded with the special seal of quality “Tiroler Bergwegegütesiegel”, and there is also a glider airfield. At the locality Niederbreitenbach you can find three tennis courts, while the Inn riverside is perfect for inline skating. Langkampfen is also located at the Inn cycle path leading to Passau in Germany. Pony riding and Haflinger horse riding for children is offered by the Weberhof farm at Oberlangkampfen. And in case you would like to indulge in small town atmosphere, just visit Kufstein and Wörgl (8 and 10 km away), which are also perfect for a shopping afternoon in case of bad weather.
In winter Langkampfen and surroundings offer fantastic cross-country ski trails, the 2 km long natural toboggan run Windschnur, an ice stock track, an ice rink for skating as well as a lift facility with respective exercising ski run. The village also includes the Schönwörth castle, a reconstructed residential tower dating back to the 13th century. It is part of the oldest historic residences of Tyrol, but as it is in private hands it cannot be visited. What you can admire instead are the prehistoric items in the Thurnerhof, which were found and gathered along the Roman Road. Make a journey in time!
Our recommendation: a scenic flight above the Kaiser mountain chain from the glider airfield is an adventurous experience! If you prefer just watching, sit back and relax on the sun terrace of the Tiroler Fliegerstube.
