In the heart of the natural reserve “Natura 2000″, there is the holiday resort Tannheim.
Altitude: 1,097 m asl
There is even an evidence for the excellent quality of Tannheim: the Tannheimer valley is the first “Drinking Water Quality Region” of Tyrol and has been awarded with the seal of approval of a local association. As a member of the “Klimabündnis Tirol”, Tannheim also offers good air quality. Pure drinking water, good air quality, and what else? Especially families will look forward to vacations in Tannheim, as the village is very child-oriented and has even been awarded to be a family-friendly place.
Doubtlessly the surroundings live up to the expectations visitors might have regarding a beautiful alpine landscape. Lake Vilsalpsee and its waterfall are within one hours’ reach from the village. Other popular hiking destinations are Lake Traualpsee, a small artificial lake located at 1,631 m asl above Lake Vilsalpsee, as well as the pond “Floschen”. Worth visiting is likewise the museum of local history, which provides an insight into life of ancient times. Placed in an old farmhouse, musical instruments, items and living spaces take you on a travel in time.
However, winter dreams are guaranteed in the cold months of the year. The skiing areas in the Tannheimer valley offer great conditions, such as the Nesselwängle (13 km of ski slopes) and Neunerköpfle (11.5 km of ski slopes) skiing areas. Cross-country skiers, however, will enjoy skiing in the medalled cross-country ski track in the Tannheimer valley. The “ADAC Ski Guide 2008″ has nominated this cross-country ski track as one of the top 10 tracks in the category Nordic/Cross-Country. Enjoy!
