The market town of Reutte is located at the Lech river at the border to the Allgäu/Germany.

Altitude: 854 m asl

Three firs, three hills and the Tyrolean colours white and red - that’s what the emblem of Reutte depicts. The name of the village derives from “roden” which means “to stub”. Thus the firs symbolise the abundance of forest of the region and the hills point to the landscape. Take your time to ramble about in the city. A sight to see are above all the houses characterised by facades that have been painted by Johann Jakob Zeiller (1708-1783)!

In summer the Reuttener Seilbahnen lift facilities take you to the popular Hahnenkamm mountain. This is where not only a large number of hiking trails are waiting to be explored, but also the Alpine Flower Garden on the Höfener Alm pasture: some 600 plant species are here in flower on an area of 1.5 hectares from June to September. The first “Alpine Barefoot Hiking Trail”, however, has been established according to the Kneipp principle and includes wood, stone, sand and water. Those who love splashing around in the waters can look forward to the lakes Plansee, Heiterwang and Urisee, in which you cannot only swim, but also surf, sail, fish and dive.

In winter the Reuttener Seilbahnen lift facilities take you to the Hahnenkamm Höfen skiing area. Off the ski slopes you can enjoy skating on frozen Lake Plansee or show-shoeing. One of the highlights in your winter holidays might be a romantic ride with a horse-drawn sleigh across the beautiful landscape!

Our recommendation: every year there is a knight’s festival in the “Europäische Burgenwelt Ehrenberg” museum and the cultural autumn of Reutte (Reuttener Kulturherbst).
