Here you find tradition and modernity combined in the typical village life - Welcome to Kolsass

Kolsass is situated at an altitude of 553 metres above sea level and is about 10 kilometres from Schwaz.
With around 1,500 inhabitants, the small community is the perfect place to take a break from everyday life and spend a few relaxing days in the silver region of Karwendel.

Kolsass was first mentioned in a document in 1050. In today's local area, however, a parish was probably founded several centuries earlier - it was already elevated to mother parish at the end of the 8th century. In these distant times, various goods were transported from Kolsass via the Weertal valley to South Tyrol. The town centre with its church and the district of Mühlbach are the first pillars of this proud town. It is believed that the name of the village comes from the Romansh language. Kolsass is made up of the two words "Col" and "Sass" and means "hill" and "rock". These words describe the hill on which Rettenberg Castle was built. Nowadays this castle belongs to the neighbouring municipality of Kolsassberg.
In summer, the village offers a wide range of activities such as mountain biking, hiking and running.
