Old town Schwaz
Charming, unadulterated and genuine

The charming old town of Schwaz is worth a visit with its many hidden treasures.


The beautiful old town of Schwaz can be reached via the city square and Franz-Josef-Straße. The old town of Schwaz is framed by the Schwaz town hall from the early 16th century and the parish church Maria Himmelfahrt. From here, you can immerse yourself in the history of the Silver City and take a leisurely tour of sights such as the Rabalderhaus, the Fuggerhaus or the Franciscan monastery with its impressive cloister.


The pulsating Innsbrucker Straße opposite invites you to stroll and linger with its shops. You can combine your stroll through the old town with a visit to the Schwaz shopping centre "Stadtgalerien". If you want to explore Schwaz on your own, the many parking possibilities in the city centre and on the outskirts (within walking distance) offer the perfect start. Get to know the rich history and culture of the Silver City on your own or on a guided city tour.

There are some hidden places in the old town of Schwaz. These special places are the highlights of the newly designed city tour. The vaulted cellar in the Palais Enzenberg in Franz-Josef-Straße or the attic of the parish church Maria Himmelfahrt are only two of the ten stations of the new city tour worth seeing. Professional city guides will accompany you on this highly interesting tour, organised by Stadtmarketing Schwaz.
