Schlaiten has about 500 inhabitants. It is located in Iseltal, south-west of the Isel. Schlaiten’s location is actually notable – the settlement area is situated almost completely on a terrace, a proud 150 metres above the valley floor. If that isn’t a great location then what is? The view to the surrounding mountains in particular is superb. 

You get very close to the slopes of the Villgrater mountains here and also to the Bockstein, the highest point in the district; at 2805 metres it is not exactly a mound and really is terrific and impressive. In terms of history, Schlaiten also goes back a bit. In the 13th century silver and common metals were mined here. Mining enjoyed its heyday here in the 15th century. As for sights, you could head for the memorial chapel in particular, and also the very charming St. Chrysanthus and Daria chapel, which houses a neo-Romanesque high altar from 1888.
