The smallest town in Austria

Rattenberg, spanning some 10 hectares, is the smallest town in Austria. The little town is known far and wide as the ‘glass town’. While strolling through the medieval pedestrianised zone you get to explore the many charming details on the carefully restored medieval town houses. The many glass-refining businesses are not to be overlooked either and it is through them that Rattenberg became known as a glass town. Sights including Augustinermuseum, the Nagelschmiedhäuser including the handicraft museum, the town's parish church and the glass-blowing workshop in the Kisslinger house are definitely worth a visit. From the castle ruins on the Schlossberg you get to enjoy a wonderful view to the Inntal and the Tirol mountains. The Schlossbergspiele games are held on the castle ruins every year.
