Rettenschöss, consisting of several hamlets, is part of the holiday area Kaiserwinkl.

Altitude: 680 m asl

The little mountain village of Rettenschöss is located in idyllic position in the mountains of Tyrol, offering a great view on the Zahmer Kaiser mountain. Including a territory ranging from 600 m to 1,455 m asl, the centre of the village is represented by the hamlet of Harland, including town hall, elementary school as well as a chapel. And due to the fact that the road passes down in the village, this is where you can enjoy a completely calm atmosphere.

Beside the villages Walchsee, Kössen and Schwendt, also Rettenschöss is part of the holiday area Kaiserwinkl, which is constantly aiming at offering attractive holidays to their guests. Especially those who love nature will enjoy a stay in this area: natural swimming pools as well as the heated Niederndorf pool in the forest invite you to jump into the waters. Moreover the offer regarding possible hikes in the surroundings will convince you. The mountains Wandberg, Geigelstein and Spitzstein, or the Zahmer Kaiser and Wilder Kaiser mountain chains slightly more distant… you will be spoilt for choice!

In winter Rettenschöss offers several ice stock sport rinks as well as a cross-country ski track, taking you from Miesberg to Walchsee and round the Miesberg mountain. If you prefer skiing you can look forward to the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental: 280 km of well-groomed ski slopes are available in this fabulous skiing area. You will need more than one day to really experience this resort.

Our recommendation: a side-trip into history: the emblem of the village depicts an eagle talon, representing the eagle that is illustrated on the Tyrolean emblem, as well as a white-blue field of rhombuses standing for Bavaria. This emblem is aimed at representing history, in the course of which Lordship and the territory of Rettenschöss passed in the 16th century from the hands of Bavarian dukes into the hands of the Counts of Tyrol.
