A ride with the Summer Coaster Mieders, which starts on the slopes of Mt. Serles, guarantees long-lasting memories.
Altitude: 952 m a.s.l.
Mieders is located in the anterior Stubaital valley at the foot of Mt. Serles. It is a clustered village with a centre, characterised by constructions with beautiful Baroque frescoes. The name probably derives from the celtic term "Bidaras", which means "settlement of small farmsteads".
Worthwhile in this popular holiday resort is the old mill, which was restored in detail work and provides an insight into handicrafts and farmers' lives of ancient times. However, you are also invited to visit the Chapel at the Calvary, which rises on the top of a hill in the centre of Mieders, as well as the Nativity of Mary Parish Church, the most ancient church of the entire valley.
Afterwards, the Serlesbahnen lift facilities take you comfortably from the village into the hiking and skiing area Serles. Particularly popular is the hike on the eponymous local mountain, the 2,718 m high Serles, already referred to as "High Altar of Tyrol" by Goethe. Moreover there is the Upland Moor Hike as well as the Via Ferrata Kaser Mahder, snaking between the Stubai Alps and the Zillertal Alps. In winter, here you'll find the Serles Skiing Area, one of four in the valley.
