Great parts of Imsterberg are located on the sunny slopes of the Venet Massif, on the southern side of the Inn river

Altitude: 879 m a.s.l.

Imsterberg with its component localities Imsterau, Ried, Endsfeld, Höfle, Vorderspandegg and Hinterspadegg is located on the sunny slopes of Mt. Venet. The municipal coat of arms refers also to the power of water of the Inn, converted into electricity in the generating plant Prutz-Silz.

The village is characterised by its Baroque parish church dedicated to the Seven Sorrows of Mary. In its interior you can admire two life-size angels of the royal-Prussian court sculptor Johann Schnegg (1724-1784) from Imsterberg. The hiking trails in the surroundings, however, take you past farms and mountain huts, along which you often get offered a "Saltbrennten", a home-distilled schnaps. A popular destination is the Venet Mountain Hut at almost 2,000 m a.s.l.

The challenging trail to the Venet Hut, however, including a drop of 12-20%, is famous also among mountain bikers. Here you have to pedal really hard in order to be able to enjoy the great view on the Pitztal, Inntal and Gurgltal valleys. If you prefer more comfortable tours, you might enjoy the Inn Cycle Route - Tiroler Oberland which takes past the village and leads to Innsbruck. In winter, in the surroundings you'll find two toboggan runs and the Imster Bergbahnen Skiing Area.
