Imst

In the centre of the small town of Imst there’s the path leading into the Rosengarten Gorge, a worthwhile biotope in Tyrol.

Altitude: 830 m a.s.l.

The sunny town of Imst was eternalised in an operetta in 1891 AD, written by the Austrian composer Carl Zeller. "Der Vogelhändler" is about the bird-dealers of Imst, which sold songbirds in Europe in the 18th and 19th century. Imst is also considered to be the birthplace of the project "SOS-Kinderdörfer" (SOS Children's Villages), which was founded by Hermann Gmeiner in 1949.

Both summer and winter, Imst delights with theatre performances, classical concerts and modern festivals, furthermore there are unique museums such as the House of Fasnacht, dedicated to the famous "Schemenlaufen", and the Museum at the Ballhaus. However, also the fun factor doesn't come off badly, as there is the Alpine Coaster Imst, an all-year round toboggan run, which starts at the Untermarkter Mountain Hut and takes you down into the valley.

If you love hiking, you shouldn't miss the tour into the Rosengarten Gorge, a place where the Schinderbach brook thunders across. Millions of years of history of earth come alive here, in one of the most worthwhile biotopes of Tyrol. Of course winter sports characterise also this locality in the cold season, as Imst is located in the heart of large winter sport centres, such as the ones of the Oetztal valley and the Pitztal Glacier. High above the town, you'll find the Imster Bergbahnen Skiing Area in Hoch-Imst, a family-friendly destination featuring 9 km of slopes.
