At the foot of the 3,036 m high Parseierspitze, the main peak of the Lechtal Alps, there is the holiday resort of Grins. Below the village, the Sanna river runs. Findings from the Neolothic age testify the long settlement history of the area. When in 1945 the village, built in Rhaeto-Romanic construction style, burnt down, in the years to come it was completely rebuilt true to original.
Grins is an active village, which is also attributable to its location in the heart of the stunning Lechtal Alps, offering numerous possibilities for hikes as well as cosy mountain huts to stop at. Embedded in the sunny slope terraces at the edge of the village, there is the public swimming pool, in addition Grins offers a tennis court and a football field. Mountain bikers can look forward to a wide variety of trails, taking e.g. to the Gogles Mountain Hut. This trail is 9 km long, and at its end you are amply rewarded with a refreshment or a snack at the mountain hut.
Grins has also got some sights to offer, such as the St. Nicholas Parish Church. This rococo church dates back to the 18th century and boasts a ceiling fresco of the famous painter Matthäus Günther (1705-1788) in its interior. Above Grins, however, there is the medical spring of Wildbad, already appreciated by Margaret, Countess of Tyrol. You can reach this magnesium-calcium-sulphate spring within 45 minutes from the village - its water is considered to have a positive effect in the healing of hepatic and biliary diseases, colonic inertia and various skin disorders.
