Mils bei Imst

The Gunglgrünsteig trail, a popular hike, takes you from Mils bei Imst to the town of Imst via the Sonnberg mountain

Altitude: 743 m a.s.l.

The little holiday resort of Mils bei Imst is located in the north of the Inn river - not to be confused with the municipality Mils in the surroundings of Hall in Tirol. The name derives from the Latin term "molere" (mill), as the village is located on a debris cone, on which mills were located. Mils has been able to preserve its rural appearance until today.

In the immediate surroundings there are the Milser Au and the Larsenn Gorge. The protected Milser Au is a real natural jewel, located along the Inn river, and the last large lowland riparian forest of the region. In 2003, a storm brought about damage, resulting in protecting measures and a revitalisation programme for the meadow that was launched in 2008. The Larsenn Gorge, however, is a popular meeting point for climbers, coming here to climb and conquer the gorge.

The possibilities regarding leisure time activities are varied, including the leisure time facility Hitte-Hatte-Au right next to the Milser Au, which is based on ecology principles. The park features a herb garden, a trout pond, water games and a Kneipp facility. Moreover, Mils bei Imst is located along the famous Way of St. James, and along the long-distance cycling trails Via Claudia Augusta and Inn Cycle Route. In winter, however, the village offers an ice skating ground.
