The village of Breitenwang, which has 1465 inhabitants, spans a large municipal area.

The picturesque village which spans a wide area at the foot of the Schloßberg, with the Ehrenberg Castle ruins, is an ideal place for enjoying a relaxing, ­restorative and yet also an adventure-packed holiday with all the family.

With its four areas (Ammerwald, Lähn, Mühl and Neumühl), it provides plenty of space for holidays in the country. In terms of settlement, these days it has amalgamated with the district capital of Reutte, yet is still able to look back upon a much older settlement history. Even in the 12th century, Breitenwang was mentioned as being the hub of the original parish. The church as it is today was re-designed between 1685 and 1691; the church steeple originated a short time before that. Many art pieces inside the church, which has retained its opulent Baroque style, are particularly worthy of note.

The little village has 829 inhabitants. The district name was first mentioned in documents dating from 1404. Even today, a fresco on a house in Ehenbichl is ­evidence of the oldest crossing of the Lech, situated between Ehenbichl and Höfen, a neighbouring town. Today a pedestrian bridge across the Lech links ­Ehenbichl and Höfen. It is a truncated pedestrian ­connection to the valley station for Reutte cable car.

With the death of German, German Roman Emperor ­Lothar III, in the 12th century Breitenwang entered into history. While travelling through the area he passed away in a Breitenwang farmhouse, on which you can still find an epigraph to this day. These days Breitenwang is also the headquarters for the globally operating Plansee Group, which is the ­biggest employer in the entire Außerfern area.

The town is a popular holiday destination and has a ­rural feel in the Naturparkregion Reutte. The village spreads out at the foot of the Hahnenkamm area and extends to the Lech.

Today’s district of Lechaschau, called Lech until 1888 – formed, together with Wängle, Höfen, Weißenbach­and Vorderhornbach – since the settlement in the 8th cen­ tury by the Alemanns through to the 16th century, a unified administrative, economic, legal and pastoral ­association, ‘Niedergericht Aschau’.

Until the construction of the first Lech bridge in Reutte there was a fort in Höfen and it was at this point that the Romans crossed the Lech. The valley station for Reuttener Seilbahnen is located on the outskirts of the ­village. An 8-seater continuously circulating cable car takes holiday-makers to the Höfener­Alm and up to the Hahnenkamm, a sunny Alpine pasture and mountainous area which has plenty of alpine flora, peppered with altitude paths. In 2016 the Mariahilf-Kirche in Höfen closed for ­renovation work, during which a really lovely ceiling fresco by the well-known painter Joseph Anton Köpfle, who was born in Höfen, was uncovered and restored. Joseph Anton Köpfle painted the ceiling fresco ‘Feast of Assumption’ in 1800 free of charge; it shows Mary surrounded by a crowd of angels, being taken up to heaven.


Located on the left banks of the Lech, this town which has some 2000 inhabitants, is an ideal place to enjoy a relaxing, restorative holiday with all the family. Thanks to the direct proximity (only separated by the Lech) to the district capital of Reutte, Lechaschau has a very good infrastructure. The Lech, earlier ‘the most unmanageable water body in Tyrol’, is the oldest in­ habitant in the valley. In the meantime, the Lech has been put to use, yet is still filled with natural power and clear cleanliness.

Six kilometres to the north-west of the district capital of Reutte is the little village of Musau, with its 390 inhabitants on the left banks of the Lech. Musau is a dispersed settlement, whose towns Brandstatt, Saba, Roßschläg, Leite, Platte, Hofstatt, Riedle and Höllmühle, are distri­ buted over an area spanning some 4 kilometres.

Almost wholly connected to the district capital of Reutte, Pflach is located to the north-east – at the foot of the impressive border mountain, the 2047 m high Säuling.

Up until after the Second World War, it was agriculture, in particular livestock breeding, which was the main occupation of the village inhabitants. However, they were unable to make a living, which meant that some of the men and children from all the areas in the Außerfern were forced to head to abroad to work as ­migrant workers to earn a few pounds to make a living.

It is a village which spans a wide area, which at the start of the 16th century enjoyed an economic recovery from the Augsburg trading house of the Hoechstetters. In spite of having some 1400 inhabitants, who live in three areas – Ober-, Unterletzen and Wiesbichl – Pflach has lost none of its original charm as a little village. Whether you come here to enjoy the activities or just to relax and unwind, in Pflach you will certainly enjoy wonderful holidays.

The location close to the border and the good road ­network to Innertirol mean it is an ideal place for ­excursions. Musau is also an ideal starting point for wonderful hikes to Alpine lodges and inns.

Thanks to its location close to the border, this village is historically significant. Today, after a history of settlement spanning some 900 years, this dreamy little ­sunny village is split into two areas: Ober- and Unterpinswang. The natural surroundings which are always particularly lovely, in which Pinswang nestles, provides a wonderful spectacle at any time of year.

The picture-perfect market town of Reutte is situated in the north-western corner of Tyrol. The townhouses with their fantastic gables, bay windows and trompe l’oeils create a charming blend of a chequered history and present.

Traditional customs are still alive and well here. ‘Scheibenschlagen’ and ‘Hollagehn’ on Holy Innocents’ Day. At one time lots of pilgrims made their way here to ‘Gottseligen Bruder Ulrich’, above whose grave today St. Ulrich parish church sits, built in 1725 by famous Baroque builder Johann Fischer from Füssen. Old, mysterious ruins around Pinswang tempt you to head off on discovery-filled adventures. Thanks to its favourable location, lots of excursion destinations are very close – the Bavarian royal palaces in Neuschwanstein, Hohenschwangau and Linderhof, Wieskirche, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the towns of Ober­ ammergau and Mittenwald – famous for their wood carving – are practically round the corner.


Traditional guesthouses, cosy restaurants, contemporary boutiques and superb townhouses herald a lively present and a chequered past in the historic market town of Reutte. Since the 1950s until today Reutte, thanks to its cent­ ral location and transport links, has experienced a monumental boom. The at one time predominantly r­ural structure in terms of economic and social life, ­disappeared. Trade, commerce, industry, tourism and administration are the characteristics of the district capital today. The market town is located at 854 m sea level in the middle of a wide valley basin on the Lech, lined by mountains.

The only town in the district which has a village feel. Vils is set amid charming scenery, 12 km north west of Reutte on the Bavarian border. At the foot of the Ruine Vilsegg is St. Anna church and a hammer mill with a water wheel, which was used by the Lords of ­Hohenegg as an armoury.

As well as Breitenwang, Wängle is the oldest settlement in the Außerfern. The parish dates back to the 9th century and is mentioned in archive documents dating to the 18th century as the parish of Aschau. Wängle was where the minister of the parish of Aschau resided and the location of the parish church and the cemetery.

Ruine Vilsegg, built around 1220, was until 1540 the residence of the Lords of Hohenegg. The Baroque church Maria Himmelfahrt was built between 1709 and 1714 using plans made by Füssen master builder Johann­Jakob Herkomer and was inaugurated on 21st April 1714. Vils was at one time known far and wide as being the place where lutes and violins were made. In the course of the 20th century it became a town with one of the most significant ‘crib’ locations in Tyrol.

Towards the end of the 17th century it then became one of the first pastoral care sites. Wängle was, under the minister Johannes Reichardt, the seat of the dean for the state capital of Füssen – from 1741 to 1747. As in all the towns in the district seasonal workers from Wängle (predominantly bricklayers and service staff) went abroad in the summer, so too did many of the children, who worked as shepherds or nurses (Swabian child­ ren!).

Fantastic hikes head through unspoilt landscapes to ­Alpine pastures and mountain peaks which provide wonderful views to the impressive mountains and the picturesque Alpine foothills. From pleasure-oriented rider to mountain biker – there are routes to suit every need. Lake Alatsee is really close by for all those of you who enjoy swimming. Tennis courts, ice and asphalt curling rinks and rocky climbing walls tempt the sporty among you.

St Martin’s parish church built between 1702 and 1704 with its ceiling frescoes ‘Installation of the sacrament of the altar’ and ‘the Gathering of manna in the wilderness’ by Franz Anton Zeiller (1786) is worth seeing. The altar leaves ‘St. Martin’ and ‘Holy Family’ were painted in 1704 by Paul Zeiller. In 2004 the church was lovingly restored. A small section of the at one time booming salt transport proceeded via the Gaicht pass through Tannheimer Tal to the Bodensee area. Wängle is also home to 1982 downhill champion held in Schladming, Harti Weirather.

Weißenbach 887 m sea level 1284 inhabitants

Weißenbach has for years been part of the wider parish of ‘Aschau’. According to a legend, the king of the Franks, Pipin, was said to have gifted St. Magnus a monastery foundation in Füssen around 750. The big upsurge for the town only happened when in 1550 the road was built above Gacht (these days known as: Gaicht) to transport salt to Allgäu and into the Bodensee area. It was also known as the ‘Salzstraße’ or the ‘Hallstraße’ road. Since assistance was always ­required to go up via the steep pass, the people of Weißenbach, enjoyed modest prosperity for the time. As a result, the town quickly expanded. At the Ga(i)cht pass a fortification facility was established in 1632 on the outlying area of Ehrenberg Castle. In Weißenbach the River Lech was crossed via raft in earlier times. The franchise for this was held, according to old law, by the people of Eden-, Laggen- and Zittenhof. The Tyrolean local rulers needed huge amounts of firewood for their salt works in Hall. The biggest area to gather wood was in Lechtal between Weißenbach and Rieden. Although in the village there were many different handcraft professions, some of the population had to go to neighbouring Bavaria to work as seasonal workers. The women then had to spend the summer alone managing the farms.



A historic walk through Reutte

After a few metres you come to the hotel/guesthouse ‘Zum Mohren’ – Untermarkt 26. Gasthof ‘Zum Mohren’ is one of the long-established guesthouses in Reutte; even from 1646 it was a guesthouse/brewery. In 1765 the owner, Joseph Wagner, was mentioned in council minutes as ‘holding landlord at the Mohrenkopf’. In the course of time the names of the hosting families have indeed changed, yet the name of the guesthouse remained unchanged. The original guesthouse signpost can today be seen in our local history museum ‘Grünes Haus’ (Untermarkt 25). Next door is ‘Tauscher Haus’ – Untermarkt 24. The ­so-called ‘Tauscher Haus’ dates from the 18th century. The fresco of the ‘Immaculata’ (depiction of Mary of the Immaculate Conception) beneath the gable of the house is dated around 1780 and has been attributed to the well-known Reutte Baroque painter Johann Jakob Zeiller. The bourgeois house was named after its ­former owner, the businessman and mayor of Reutte, Karl Ludwig Tauscher (1827 – 1897). Since 1930 the building has been owned by the community of Reutte.

A historic walk through Reutte

Diagonally opposite is the re-designed ‘Zeiller Platz’ – a pleasing, relaxing area in the middle of Untermarkt – surrounded by the historic buildings of the former ­‘Untere Salzstadel’, the ‘Zeiller Haus’ and the ‘Grabherr Haus’.

Start your circuit at our office, The Tourist Information Office for the Naturparkregion Reutte (Untermarkt 34) – we will accompany you on your stroll through our lovely local town providing information which we have taken from the book ‘Reutte – 500 year old market town: 1489 – 1989’.

To start with: the Untermarkt area While walking through the park facilities in Untermarkt you get to see a cast iron fountain which has decorative elements, dating from the year 1907. It is one of the many historic fountains which enhance the landscape of Reutte today and which was restored to mark the 500 year anniversary of the market and put back in its original location. On the facade of the new secondary school is the sgraffito ‘Siege of Ehrenberg’. Green spaces in the Untermarkt 18


A historic walk through Reutte

Salt Stock in Reutte ‘Untere Salzstadel’ – Untermarkt 31: the ‘Untere Salz­ stadel’ was located in today’s office and residential building up until the end of the 18th century. Soon after written approval from Duke Sigismund in 1471 a salt depot made out of wood was set up in Unterreutte; in 1712 a new building was constructed out of stone. There was a charge for storing the salt containers for the owner, the parish of Breitenwang. When the salt trade stagnated, the ‘Untere Salzstadel’ was used ­between the years of 1778 – 1841 as a custom house (­‘Dogana Stadel’) for the transport of goods to and from Füssen. Since that time, the building with its characteristic hipped roof has been privately owned.

The painting family, the Zeillers ‘Zeiller Haus’ also known as ‘Schöne Haus’ (Zeiller-­ Platz 2) was spared by the major fires in Reutte in 1703 and 1704. There are still fragments of frescoes visible on the south side of the building, which date from around 1600. The façade paintings on the other three sides of the building – particularly worthy of emphasis are the frescoes on the gable side – were created in 1776 and are by Baroque painter Johann Jakob Zeiller (1708 – 1783). His father and first teacher, Paul Zeiller (1658 – 1738), inherited this house from his father Christoph. Paul Zeiller, who set up the Außerfern school of painting, also taught his nephew, Franz ­Anton Zeiller (1716 – 1794), and had his painting ­workshop here. His famous son Johann Jakob was born in this house.

Amble through the traffic-calmed Untermarkt ‘Grabherr Haus’ – Zeiller-Platz 1: Also part of the former guesthouse ‘Zur goldenen Rose’ (Untermarkt 29), was the ‘Turm’ (Untermarkt 27) and ‘Zeiller Haus’. In the 15th century the entire property was in the ownership of the long-established Reutte family, the Klainhann’s. In the 2nd half of the 17th century, it was purchased by wealthy Reutte citizen and salt factor Christoph Zeiller and for a few generations it was owned by the Zeiller family. A fire in 1704 completely destroyed the inn. 20

A historic walk through Reutte

The building as it is today was completed in 1737 and was used as an inn and as accommodation. Between 1754 – 1782 it was the headquarters of the district ­governor of Oberinntal, an administrative district, which more or less takes in today’s districts of Reutte, Imst and Landeck. Between the years of 1806 – 1814 the ‘Königlich Bayerische Rentamt’ (the royal Bavarian financial offices) were in this building. After the end of Bavarian rule, the house was in the possession of business men: Grabherr, Senetin and Hösle. The façade painting with the richly adorned trompe-l’oeil architectural portal frame dates from around 1800. On the longitudinal façade of the building, on the middle window, a medallion with a rose and a plate of food with a wine jug, which is held by two putti, still allude to the Wein­wirtshaus ‘Zur güldenen Rosen’. At the end of the longitudinal side of the ‘Grabherr Haus’ is the ‘Turm’ (the ‘tower’) – Untermarkt 27. The ‘Turm’ is probably the oldest preserved building in Reutte. The rooms on the first floor were used as accommo­da­tion for people travelling through the area. Even E ­ mperor Friedrich III., the father of Maximilian I., was said to have stayed here in 1488 when he was ­travelling through.

The ‘Grünes Haus’ – historic building and museum Walk further and you come to the ‘Grünes Haus’ – ­Untermarkt 25. The ‘Grünes Haus’ is said to date from the 2nd half of the 16th century, as Renaissance paintings recently discovered on the 2nd floor attest. The prosperous Sisters of Strelle have been proven to be the owners around the middle of the 18th century. It was probably on their behest that Johann Jakob Zeiller ­created the façade paintings decorations in 1779 on a green background. Under the gable, around the middle window, is a symmetrical depiction of the ‘Holy Trinity’ on clouds. Architectural paintings, such as the light portal, columns on the corners, cornices and herma pilaster on the crowned cartouche windows adorn the building. It was probably around 1800 that the wrought iron ­Rococo style window boxes came about. In the years 21

impressive ‘Mittelflurhaus’. His son, the affluent landlord, Jakob Mang Ammann, moved the brewery in 1774 to one of the guesthouses in the neighbourhood, the ‘Goldenes Kreuz’ (Untermarkt 18) in an annex of the ‘Goldene Rose’.

‘Grünes Haus’

between 1821 and 1918 the townhouse was owned by the post master’s family, the Angerers (the owners of the large guesthouse ‘Zur Post’ which was located next door at the time). The district of Reutte purchased the house in 1986 from a private owner. The house was extensively restored in 1989 for the Tyrol National Exhibition, marking 500 years the elevation of Reutte to ‘market town’ status. For this outstanding regeneration, the building was awarded the international ‘Europa Nostra’ diploma. Since 1990 Reutte’s museum of local history has been accommod­ated in the rooms in the building. As well as the exposed Renaissance paintings and the exquisite stucco ceiling, dated around 1720/30, the museum ­provides an interesting insight into the development of arts and handcrafts in the Außerfern. Well worth a visit!

Guesthouses in the historic town centre Diagonally opposite is ‘Rose’ – Untermarkt 16. The former brewery/guesthouse ‘Zur goldenen Rose’ is said to have got its name around 1800 from the public house ‘Zur güldenen Rosen’, when it set up a hospitality ­business. According to lore, in 1724 Johann­Ammann established an old Gothic building structure above the 22

On the same street at the end of Untermarkt is the ‘Goldene Hirsch’ – Mühler­Straße 1. The guesthouse close to the market square ‘Zum goldenen Hirschen’, is one of the oldest guesthouses in Reutte. In 1615 Christoph Zeiller, father of Baroque painter Paul Zeiller, purchased the wine tavern for his large family. The guesthouse remained in the hands of the eminent ­Zeiller family for over a century and was then taken on by the Geisenhof family, who finally in 1782 were granted a ‘Bräustattrecht’. The brewing business ­continued until 1906, although in the interim the ­brewery/guesthouse had changed hands.

Dengel Haus, Strahlenburg Castle Diagonally to the left, opposite the main road, you can see one of the loveliest houses in Reutte, ‘Dengel Haus’ – Obermarkt 3. Dengel Haus was built in 1704 by the ‘business trader’ Johann Ammann in an extensive ­pasture area. The marble coat of armour for the comm­ ercial business can be seen above the entrance portal. ­Until 1780 stayed in the hands of the affluent Reutte business family, the Ammanns, who used the building as a business trading building and as a guesthouse, the ‘Zum schwarzen Bären’. The subsequent owners, the Strelle family from Löwenberg and Strahlenburg, also worked here as large scale manufacturers, beer brewers and landlords. The family’s prosperity can be seen in the particularly impressive façade of the property, which they commissioned around 1800. The paintings, in the contemporary Empire style of that era, border the windows and stand out tastefully from the green background. Excellently worked Rococo window baskets with lots of detail decorate the gable side of the building. The excellent decorative wrought iron work – some of the nicest of this kind in the Außerfern – are ­attributed to Ehrwald master-worker, Johann Franz Guem. The building was owned by the Strelle family until 1821, then it changed hands often thereafter. In 1920 Dr. Ignaz Philipp Dengel, a scholar and local 23

historian from Außerfern, inherited the house, which has been named after him to this day. When renovation was carried out, Dengel had his coat of arms apply to the bay on the north side of the house. The renovation work is referred to in a maxim by Tyrolean dialect poet, Bruder Willram. According to a testamentary decree, Professor Dengel handed ownership of the house to the community of Reutte in 1955 with the condition that it should be used for ­social and cultural purposes. This was fulfilled by the market town district authority with the setting up of the so-called ‘Dengel Galerie’ in the old vaults on the ground floor, where exhibitions are regularly shown.

In Obermarkt: ‘Markt-Gemeindeamt’ – the market town offices Immediately in front of ‘Dengel Haus’ is the ‘Markt-­ Gemeindeamt’ – Obermarkt 1. The ‘Marktgemeinde­ amt’ building stands on history-laden soil. In 1491 the ­citizens of Reutte set up a granary and a town hall in this area, which in the time followed was continually developed and extended. The ground floor of the ­building was used to store grain for weekly market days, as a trading area when the weather was bad, as a meeting room and even as a ‘polling area’ for the at one-time yearly held mayoral elections. On the top floor from the 18th century there was an archive room for the dist­ricts’ certificates and written documentation. There was also a conference room for the council, a chancery room for the town clerk and the mayor also had his own ­office. However it was only towards the end of the 19th century that the building lost its ­primary function as a grain store and trading area and since that time has been solely the seat of the district ­authority offices.

Marktgemeinde Reutte

occasion of the 500-year celebrations of the town’s market status provision a young tree was replanted on the site, in the middle of the road. The ‘Nagelsäule’ (column of nails) is standing on the south-west corner of the Marktgemeindeamt since 1917 and documents the locals’ preparedness to help out during the need created by World War One. With the donation of a sum of money for war widows and orphans, a nail could be beaten into the wooden ­column.

‘District authority’ and ‘District court’ building In the 15th and 16th centuries a hearing day was often held outdoors in front of the building. From his seat of judgement seat (‘Dingstuhl’) the judge of Ehrenberg set the law. Weekly and yearly markets were also held around the grain house. The image of the market square was dominated by a large linden tree, which was said to date from the time of the town’s elevation to market town status in 1489. Not least on account of its size and age, the tree had to be felled in 1947. On the 24

Adjoining this is the ‘District authority’ office – Obermarkt 7. In the 2nd half of the 18th century Joseph Carl Falger (1704 – 1777) constructed the guesthouse ‘Zur Gemse’ for genteel travellers. When journeying through in 1782, Pope Pius VI issued a blessing to the people from the balcony of the building. A memorial on the ­facade of today’s ‘District authority’ office is a reminder of this event. 25

A historic walk through Reutte

The District Court is opposite – Obermarkt 2. Even around 1600 today’s plain building which has a steep pitched roof, was mentioned in documents as being the ‘Ehrenheim’ residence for the moneyed nobles of Klainhanns. At that time it was one of the few stone buildings in Reutte and with its height it and the neighbouring St. Anna church, dominated the town. The building was purchased soon after 1600 by the later custodian of Ehrenberg, Burkart Layman for Liebenau. In 1606 he transferred the trusteeship of Ehrenberg Castle to ‘Ehrenheim’, a little while later the offices of the judge of the Castle were here. Between 1854 – 1938 the district authority and the courts where in the same building. Since 1938 the district court and the police station have been accommodated in the rooms of the old ‘Ehrenheim’.

St. Anna church and former Franciscan monastery After this, the re-designed church square which has a fountain dating from the year 1874, proceeds to the Franciscan monastery which includes St. Anna parish church. On 15th March 1628 Tyrol local ruler, Archduke Leopold V and his wife Claudia of Medici laid the ­foundation stone in Reutte for the Franciscan monastery. The already existing chapel/church ­dedicated to Holy Mother Anna was connected to the monastery, which the Franciscans had already moved into in 1631. St. Anna parish and monastery church: The design of the building of today’s church dates from the time after the fire in 1703. During the catastrophic fire of 1846, the church’s Baroque fittings were destroyed. During the last major refurbishment work carried out on the church between 1964 and 1967, the neo-classical fitt­ings dating from the 19th century were removed. ­ Today the prosaic church interior is embellished by few, but all the more precious works of art – spared from both fires, the late Gothic sculptural group of the ‘Virgin and Child with St. Anne’, created by the eminent Allgäu sculptor Jörg Lederer around 1510 / 15, remain. The sumptuous carving work is set in an elevated position on the front wall of the presbytery, surrounded by a recently made aureole. Above the right side altar 26

A historic walk through Reutte

hangs a painting depicting ‘St. Anthony of Padua as intercessor for prisoners and the infirm’. It was created by Paul Zeiller from Reutte and is dated 1707. It is also particularly worth mentioning that the ‘Crucifixion group with Maria and Johannes’ on the left side altar dated 1725, is attributed to the eminent Baroque sculptor Anton Sturm (1690 – 1757). (Further details can be found in the church in the church guide.) Along the monastery walls, three old chestnut trees ­remain a reminder of Reutte’s town improvement committee’s work at the turn of the century.

Lumper Haus On the other side of the street, ‘Lumper Haus’ – Obermarkt 25 is really worth a look. Built around 1500, the small picture of a crossbowman on the north façade is a reminder of the royal huntsmen. The building fell victim to a large catastrophic fire in 1703 and was rebuilt in 1710. The medallion with the depiction of a suitor above the entrance to the building alludes to the wedding of Christian Carl Lumper, son of a lawyer from upper Lechtal, and Maria Anna Jäger, daughter of a Reutte businessman and councillor, in 1782. The fathers of the bridal pair purchased the building for their children to mark the occasion. Since that time the property has remained in the unbroken tenure of the Lumper family.

Continuing through the Obermarkt As you stroll through the Obermarkt, you come to the oldest historic fountain dating from 1820, which is in front of the Sparkasse building, and then you come to the guesthouse ‘Zum Schwarzen Adler’ – Obermarkt 75. On the square right in front of the guesthouse ‘Zum Schwarzen Adler’ there was a ‘dance house’ up until 1494. It was used to hold dances, as a meeting area for discussions on community matters and as a court. ­Until 1766 at the site of the ‘bürgerliche Guetstadel’­ (also called the ‘Pallhaus’), there was a storage area which was used for goods transported through Reutte. The guesthouse ‘Zum Schwarzen Adler’ dates from the 18th century and is especially impressive thanks to its 27

A historic walk through Reutte

A historic walk through Reutte

façade painting work which was carried out around 1800 by Josef Anton Köpfle (1757 – 1843), a pupil of ­Johann Jakob Zeiller. Under the gable a depiction of Christ’s resurrection can be seen. Classical trompe l’oeil architecture – such as columns and pilasters, Empire vases, leaf and fabric festoons – surround the portal and the windows. The artistically arranged basket bars above the entrance to the building are also worth noting.

Kög – the oldest part of Reutte Head out on a little trip from the guesthouse ‘Zum Schwarzen Adler’, bear right and go to the oldest part of Reutte, ‘Kög’. After a short walk you will come to ­Florianskapelle chapel. Documents attest that Florians­ kapelle chapel in its current form was built around 1760. The fresco of St. Florian on the façade gable and the ceiling painting inside the church date from 1951 and were created by Innsbruck painter Franz Seelos. Reutte painter Franz Anton Zeiller created the altar ­image ‘St. Florian protecting the market town of Reutte’ around 1774. Also part of the features in the recently ­restored chapel is a statue of a ‘Mater dolorosa’ and the figure of the so-called ‘Wiesheiland’ (Christ on the flagellation column). Upon your return to Obermarkt you will come to the ‘Krone’ – Obermarkt 46. This large mid hall house ­dating from the 17th century is now the guesthouse, ‘Zur goldenen Krone’, which previously was part of its own brewery. Between 28th and 29th July 1777 Emperor ­Joseph II stayed the night here, when the Krone landlord was Paul Deutsch. Above the portal a depiction of a carriage drawn by six horses and an explanatory text allude to this event.

Florianskapelle chapel

passed away in the village of Breitenwang in an ­‘impoverished farmer’s lodge’, has recently been ­convincingly refuted. Since it can be proven that in Breitenwang since 1094 there was a Guelfic farm, is presumed that the Emperor died in his son-in-law’s farm, owned by the Guelfic family of Heinrich der ­Stolze. (A memorial plaque on the house in Dorfstraße 3 shows the presumed location.)

Dean parish church of Breitenwang

Kaiser-Lothar-Straße takes us to Breitenwang

At the end of Kaiser-Lothar-Straße, to your left, is the dean parish church of Breitenwang. Recent investigations have shown that there was a road station here on the Roman road, Via Claudia August, built in 46AD. It is assumed that a Christian church also must have been here since the Late Roman period.

At the end of Obermarkt, bear left into Kaiser-Lothar-­ Straße and after a few minutes you will come to the town of Breitenwang, where Emperor Lothar III dies on 4th December 1137 on his way back from his military campaign in Italy, in the presence of Heinrich der ­Stolze. The belief that the emperor by happenstance

Peter and Paul dean parish church: the church as it is today was renovated between 1685 and 1691; the church steeple came about a short time before this. The following artistic pieces on the rich Baroque style design inside the church are worth looking at: the ­ceiling fresco in the presbytery which depicts the

‘handing over of keys to St. Peter’ dating from 1755 by Johann Jakob Zeiller. His brother-in-law, painter from Reutte, Balthasar Riepp (1703 – 1763), created the small painting above the main altarpiece which depicts the ‘conversion of St. Paul’. The main altarpiece with the ‘St. Peter’s abnegation of Christ’­was painted by Johann Christoph Haas around 1789 / 90. The two side altar images date from 1809, ­depicting the ‘Martyrdom of St. Sebastian’ and the ‘Holy Family’, were painted by Lechtal painter Karl Selb (1760 – 1819), a pupil of Johann Jakob Zeiller. Wolfram Köberl from Innsbruck painted the nave frescoes, ­modelled on Baroque style, in 1975. Shown are both ­patron saints of the church Peter and Paul, and how they guide people on their way to God. (Also see the description provided in the church) ‘Ascension church’, earlier ‘Totenkapelle’ chapel of the dead: The church steeple on the so-called ‘Chapel of Ascension’ dates from around 1680 and was enlarged in 1724. The hourglass, cross and candlesticks on the cable crest indicate the purpose of the church as being a chapel of rest and of ascension. Of significance are the stucco danse macabre depictions inside the chapel, which were created by stuccoer Thomas Seitz between 1724 and 1726. The decorative frescos, probably dating from around 1725, are by Paul Zeiller and ­Joseph Obermiller. Also part of the building are the sculpture finishes dating around 1730 by sculptor ­Anton Sturm, who worked especially for the St. Mang Benedictine Monastery in Füssen around 1725 / 30. Cemetery: On the south wall of the dean parish church in the area of the earlier cemetery, two gravestones for the Klainhanns family bearing their family coat of arms and dating from the 16th century can be seen. At the end of the eastern cemetery arcades are the graves of Christoph Zeiller and his wife Barbara, nee. Höß, who died in 1628. Jesus as the Friend of the Children is depicted in the middle of the memorial plaque, the kneeling founder parental couple and their numerous child­ren can be seen in the slim base panel. The patron saint of the dead and two tablets with their birth and death dates flank both sides of the centre 30

piece. On the superimposed segmental arch is the ­family coat of arms of the Zeiller and Höß families. Also worth looking at in the cemetery is the grave cross – particularly worthy of emphasis is a double-­ sided ­Rococo wrought iron cross dated around 1760 (the Köpfle grave).

To Rochuskapelle chapel and back to Reutte From the dean parish church in Breitenwang, the route then proceeds along Planseestraße to the Rochus­kapelle, which is dedicated to the two plague saints Rochus and Sebastian. On account of the ­patrocinium it may be assumed that the chapel was set up during the time of the plague (1611 and 1635). There is however no documentary evidence about the exact time of c ­ reation. Possibly the date visible above the entrance – 1526 – is associated with the building. Between 1953 – 1954 a small church was remodelled to create a war memorial chapel. The graffito with the depiction of the crucifixion on the exterior facade and the fresco on the chancel arch inside are by Pro31

2. Cycling Anyone who is keen on cycling can explore the ­Naturparkregion Reutte on two wheels. MTB routes of various difficulty levels take you to places which are worth beeing seen. Sections of the Ehrenberg castle ­ensemble can be tackled by bike, as can some of the ­Alpine inns and lodges. A tour along the Lechradweg is definitely lovely too, on which you get to find out about the many special features of the Lech riverscape, the ‘last wild river’. Cycling on the Roman road Via Claudia Augusta – one of the most popular long distance cycle paths – is both historically and scenically interesting. When you have our Aktiv Card, you can head out on guided cycle tours which feature in the Aktiv Card summer programme 2017. Road bike and mountain bike routes can be found online at and on the map of the region.

guides. Leisurely excursions on the water are provided by a boat ride on Plansee and Heiterwanger See. Enjoy the gentle splashing of these two waterbodies and feel the warm rays of sunshine on your skin and the lake breeze blowing in your face during a short or a long boat trip.

Fishing and angling It is definitely not an old fishwives’ tale that the crystal clear lakes in the Naturparkregion Reutte and the last wild river in Europe – the Lech – sets anglers hearts ­racing thanks to the abundance of fish and the idyllic location. While waiting for the perfect catch you can let your mind wander and leave the daily grind behind you. In the midst of the wonderful mountain panorama you can either fish alone and in total tranquillity, or head out on a fishing trip with all the family and friends. More information about individual waterbodies, fishing cards and general information is available from the tourist office in the Naturparkregion Reutte.


3. On and in the water Experiencing nature is to the fore in our holiday region and the element water is a faithful and constant companion on your tours of discovery. Crystal clear mountain lakes, like Plansee, Urisee, Frauensee and Alatsee lakes, tempt you to cool off on hot summer days. Keen anglers will find optimum fishing conditions in the ­waterbodies in Naturparkregion Reutte. The Lech Trail, a moderate long-distance hiking trail proceeds along the last wild river in the Alps, proceeding through the region and its eponym, the river Lech, has always been a characteristic feature in the valley. The idyllic location of the Stuiben Falls is not only ­suited to an adventure-packed hike with all the family, you can also really enjoy cooling off in its water pools. Everyone who prefers something a bit more spectacular can head out on a guided canyoning tour with local 36

The sun is shining bright in the sky, warming your skin. The air is warm even in the morning. Whether you are heading out for a day in the mountains or in the valley, you know that only jumping into the water will help you cool down. It is so good that in the Naturparkregion Reutte there are so many opportunities to enjoy a swim. Whether it is in the crystal clear lakes, whose water is drinking standard, the outdoor pool in Weißenbach or Alpentherme Ehrenberg – pleasurable swimming is a cert! Plansee – the second biggest lake in Tyrol Along with the numerous smaller mountain lakes, Naturparkregion Reutte is also home to the second ­biggest lake in Tyrol: Plansee. The water body spans some 6 km and at its deepest point is 76.5 metres deep. Plansee, which is quality class I, is one of the cleanest lakes in Tyrol and therefore really does tempt you to enjoy a variety of activities on and in the water. Sailors, surfers, divers and also anglers and swimmers are very 37


well catered for. On especially hot summer days or after an extended hike, you can jump into the cool waters of Plansee. It reaches an average of 17 to 21° C in the summer. Urisee The special feature at the very popular Urisee is that it has no inlet or outlet area, which means that the depths of the lake varies considerably. The jetties, which were only built a few years ago, have a genuinely curious sight, there, even the ladder which leads into the water, are completely dry. Yet, some other year, the water might be so high that the jetties are almost flooded. ­Urisee does however always provide pleasurable ­swimming – it just couldn’t be any nicer and the kiosk at the swimming area provides little treats to suit every taste. Frauensee Frauensee is the romantic lake in the Naturparkregion Reutte. It is set in an idyllic location in an enclosed ­basin surrounded by mountains. Water lilies cover some of its surface. You can get to the other bank by raft, whereby you pull yourself along a cable – a real winner with kids of course! The cosy Frauenseestube tempts you in to enjoy some refreshments – an icecream or a spritzer is part and parcel of swimming fun here. Lechausee Lechausee, a quarry pond near Weißenbach, is relatively cool and is therefore particularly suited for cooling off on hot days. Lots of families come here to swim and enjoy sunny days. Weißenbach outdoor pool The heated outdoor pool in Weißenbach is a great choice. There is a pool for swimmers and a pool for non-swimmers, an extensive sun-lounger area, a water slide and a separate splash pool for babies. The pool was recently refurbished and is suitable for people who have disabilities. Opening hours: Mon – Sun: 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. With the Aktiv Card: free!



Alpentherme Ehrenberg The water covered area of the various indoor and outdoor pools at this Alpentherme in Tyrol spans some 700 square metres and provides plenty of fun for young and old alike – throughout the year and whatever the weather. You can swim laps in the large pool or enjoy the swirling water from the current channel, before ­being gently massaged by fine little jets of air on the bubble loungers and relax on the lounger stools at the Therme gallery and take in the lovely views to the ­natural surroundings. Maybe you’d want to head outdoors straight afterwards into the salt water pool? Time will pass all too fast in the Therme for your little ones too. While splashing about in the infants’ pool and running about in Juhui´s Realm, or in the natural children’s play area fun is inevitable. Water fans of all ages will enjoy some action-packed sliding fun on the 120 metre ‘Alpenbob’ giant slide, while in the extensive ­sauna and wellness area which has six different saunas and steam baths, relaxing and healthy perspiration is the order of the day for the adults. More information: Opening hours: Swimming area: Mon – Sun: 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Sauna area: Mon – Sun: 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. With the Aktiv Card: 2 hours free of charge in the ­swimming realm!

Ever present in the area around the route is the backdrop of the Lechtaler and Allgäu Alps. More information available at




Naturpark Tiroler Lech

Celtic tree circle

Nature parks are protected areas and provide a habitat for a wide variety of interesting and rare animals and plants. Naturpark Tiroler Lech is one of five nature parks in Tyrol and the only one which is located in a high Alpine area. It spans from the Lechtal across the entire Naturparkregion Reutte. The central element in Naturpark Tiroler Lech is, as its name suggest, the wild river Lech. At many points where it is still not yet tamed, it can do what every river once did: spread out to its heart’s content, branch out and join up again. In the Nature Park protecting nature and relaxation are combined and this ought to be sought after and there should also be opportunities to learn. Regional development too is a key aim and one of the 5 pillars in the Nature Park.

The Celtic tree circle in Vils consists of 22 types of trees. The Celts attributed special properties to certain types of trees and these could be attributed to people too. U ­ sing a person’s date of birth you could discern which type of tree and which properties would be able to be attributed to that person. These connections are not scientifically proven, but is entertaining nonetheless.

Bird watching tower The impressive bird watching tower at 18 metres in height is located in the Lech wetlands near Pflach. A variety of breeding birds which are common to Tyrol, including a few rare waders and aquatic birds can be observed in the Pflach meadows. The variety-packed scenery with its many tarn pools and areas of still water provides a small paradise for birds and gives hobby ­ornithologists a great deal to observe.

Riedener See Just a few metres from the little village of Rieden in the Naturparkregion Reutte, is Riedener See, idyllically located in a forest. There is quite a lot for nature lovers to explore here: for instance Riedener See is home to Coenagrion hylas, an exceptionally rare dragonfly. The lake is also very tranquil and clear, yet even despite that it does not freeze in the winter. The reason for this are the underground springs which provide constant, yet barely perceptible movement. The water in Riedener See is very calciferous. Due to all these characteristics the little lake may also be described as being a calcareous fen. An educational nature trail proceeds around Riedener See and along the route there are explanations about the numerous specific features. 42

Plansee – the second biggest lake in Tyrol As well as many smaller mountain lakes, the Naturparkregion Reutte is home to the second largest lake in Tyrol – Plansee. Its waters span 6 km in length and at its deepest point it is 76.5 metres. Plansee is one of the cleanest lakes in Tyrol, with quality class I and therefore clearly tempts you to enjoy a wide variety of activities on and in the water. Sailors, surfers, divers as well as anglers and swimmers really are very well ­catered for here. On particularly hot summer days or after an e ­ xtended hike why not take the plunge into the cooling water in Plansee. On average in the summer it reaches a refreshing 17 to 21° C.

Stuibenfälle A hike through Stuibenfälle From the electrical substation at Reutte power station behind the production area at the metal works in Plansee (parking option) follow the signposts and hike to Stuibenfälle. The Hermannsteig also starts here and this proceeds along Stuibenfälle into the valley. On a secured path passing small waterfalls, on open terrain and across lovely forest floors you come to the great Stuibenfall. The path proceeds in serpentines up to the observation area and continues to a second somewhat smaller waterfall. At the upper end of Stuibenfälle you get to Kleine Plansee. Cross the water via a bridge here and proceed via ‘Ministersteig’ back to the starting point.
