Hidden but even more beautiful and quiet, the municipality of Schlaiten expands on impressive 150 meters above the valley floor of the Iseltal. The settlement area is almost completely situated on a terrace southwest of the River Isel. Above all, the magnificent panoramic view onto the surrounding mountain landscape is fascinating.


In Schlaiten, you get very close to the slopes of the Villgrater mountains. A popular panoramic mountain is Bockstein, the highest point of the municipal area. At 2805 meters, you will be rewarded with a fantastic view.

Like many East Tyrolean communities, Schlaiten looks back on an eventful history. Already in the 13th century, silver and base metals were mined here. Around the 15th century, mining in Schlaiten experienced its heyday. Today, a visit to the Kriegergedächtniskapelle (War Memorial Chapel) is worthwhile. Also the charming chapel of St. Chrysanth and Daria is worth seeing, as it houses a neo-Romanesque high altar from 1888.


The plateau-like location of the municipality offers a variety of scenic hiking opportunities, the spectrum ranges from leisurely walks through the forest to demanding summit tours.

Carnival is approaching its climax and we can thus look forward to a couple of cheerful days. It would be nice, of course, if the weather made us cheer, too!

And this pious wish will really come true on Monday: It will remain bright and dry.


On Shrove Tuesday, the weather will calm down. Ash Wednesday will bring a deterioration and new snowfall.
