Altitude: 724 m a.s.l.
Near the charming town of Imst, between the junction of the Pitztal and Oetztal valleys, there's the village of Roppen. This area was settled already 3,000 years ago, and today the component localities are connected by a wooden bridge above the Inn river. It is a former toll bridge.
Thanks to its position close to where the Pitze and the Oetztaler Ache rivers empty into the Inn river, the village is a perfect spot for those who love water sports such as canyoning, kayaking and rafting. Only 5 km from Roppen, at Oetztal-Bahnhof, there is the Area 47, an outdoor park and a rafting and kayaking basis with several special attractions such as a high-rope course and a bathing lake. In winter, however, Roppen awaits you with an ice skating ground, and with the skiing areas of the Pitztal and Oetztal valleys in the surroundings.
Popular sights are the enchanting chapels which are perfectly embedded into the great landscape: They include the Burschl Chapel above the village and the St. Anthony Chapel, which rises in the component locality of Oetzbruck next to a huge chestnut tree. However, the Earth Pyramids in the Waldertal valley, these interesting sand and stone monuments, can be seen along a circular trail.
