Niederndorferberg is located at the border to Bavaria above the Unterinntal valley. The municipal area includes Eiberg, Hausern, Noppenberg, Gränzing and Praschberg. Once upon a time this place used to be called Ebbersberg, referring to the lords of Ebbs, eternalized on the emblem of the village. The colours of the emblem, white and red, point to the sense of belonging to Tyrol, while the white-blue rhombuses remind on the former Bavarian possessors.
In the hamlet of Wildbichl, there is the homonymous wildlife park, which is aimed at making visitors familiar with animals of the Alpine region. Located in idyllic position in an untouched high-altitude valley, this park is natural habitat for various animals such as red deer, lynx and boars. An educational nature trail with 60 different types of trees and bushes, a children’s playground and a tavern make a trip to this place a real adventure! Also worth to be visited is the alpine dairy Hatzenstädt, which has won several prizes in cheese competitions. Moreover there is the Maria-Hechenberg chapel dating back to 1778 with a copy of the “Mariahilf” miraculous image of Innsbruck as well as the museum of local history Lieselotte Kaltschmid and its ancient handicraft artworks.
Near the village there is an eco-culture trail of 5 km length starting at the alpine dairy. Along this trail there are 12 information panels providing information on nature, agriculture and culture of this area, representative also for other mountain farm settlements. In winter in the surroundings there are several hiking trails, making you explore the fairytale-like winter landscape on foot. Those who prefer the ski runs can choose from the Zahmer Kaiser skiing area (13.5 km of ski slopes) or the comprehensive offer of the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental, offering 280 km of well-groomed slopes.
Our recommendation: you absolutely have to try the mountain cheese of the alpine dairy Hatzenstädt, made of high-quality spring water, non-silage certified raw milk of mountain farms and calf rennet. Yummy!
