Kaltenbach, together with Ried and Stumm, is positioned in the heart of the Ziller Valley. Kaltenbach is the largest and best known among them. Due to the ring road it is not troubled too much with traffic. The small and quieter village of Ried is right at the border of Kaltenbach. Stumm, on the opposite side of the valley is just 500 m from the cable car and offers a special flair with the most beautiful village square of Tyrol. All three districts have a modern touristy infrastructure, for example an indoor swimming pools and various leisure attractions. Numerous restaurants offer regional specialities like „Kasspatzen“ (traditionally prepared pasta with cheese), homemade “Apfelstrudel” (apples in sweet puff pastry) and “Kaiserschmarrn” (cut-up and sugared pancake with raisins).
