Fiss

The tranquil village of Fiss is known for its Summer Fun Park at the Möser Alpine Pasture high above the village.

Altitude: 1,436 m a.s.l.

Narrow alleys characterise the village centre of Fiss: Once upon a time, it was mainly composed of West Tyrolean farms, but its structure changed in the course of time, above all after a devastating fire in 1972, as several touristic structures were built after that.

An old tradition which is still cultivated in Fiss is the "Fisser Blochziehen" in the Carnival period. It is aimed at expelling the winter and it's taking place every four years. For this occasion, a tree trunk of a pine tree, which is a symbol of fertility and is called "Bloch", is drawn (ziehen, in German) decorated across the village. Evil spirits try to hamper these activities by every means. Also the local museum in the "s'Paules und s'Seppls Haus" building tells about this ancient custom.

In summer, one of the main attractions is the Summer Fun Park at the Möseralm Pasture. It's very exciting both for adults and kids, when the Skyswing starts, or the Fisser Flieger, a flying element, rises in the winds and the Fisser Fliter rushes down into the valley. On Mt. Schönjoch, however, a well-known starting point for for paragliders and an exercising area for model aircraft flyers, you'll find a Children's Mine which is said that it houses the golden heart of a giant. When winter is approaching, the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis Skiing Area offers 214 km of slopes and beautiful winter paths.
