Radfeld is a small community with rural tradition and borders directly onto Austria's smallest town – Rattenberg.
It may be small, but it is certainly beautiful! Below the
10th century castle you find a small romantic mediaeval town, which has been able to keep up its ancient and fine craftsmanship for so long.
In particular, the Tyrolean glass processing industry – glass-blowing, glass engraving and glass painting – advanced from Rattenberg to become an international success. The technique of glass-blowing has not changed for centuries. You can get an idea of how this is done at a visit to the Kisslinger glass company and even have a go yourself.
ENJOY THE CULTURE
It is only a 10-minute stroll from the Sonnhof to Rattenberg. The enchanting atmosphere of the small town never fails to attract tourists and Tyroleans alike. Depending on your mood, it is pleasant place for shopping, soaking up the atmosphere in the sociable cafés or restaurants, or for taking in some culture.
The annual castle festival takes place in July and the main collections in the Augustine Museum are of Gothic sculptures, gold- and silverware and religious folk art. The Malerwinkel (painters' corner) reveals itself to be a sensitive symbiosis of old and contemporary with its events, concerts and exhibitions.
NATURE IN ALL ITS FORMS
While the many historical treasures of the region have stimulated the region culturally, the natural surroundings of the region provide a special quality of life around Radfeld.
The broad expanse of the Inntal valley offers an uninterrupted view of the stunning mountain landscape, which is a delight for anyone to explore – it does not matter if you or your family prefer leisurely cycling or serious mountain tours.
The Inntal cycle path leads you along the idyllic banks of the River Inn; if you follow the various hiking trails of the Alpbachtal, you come to alpine huts and inns in the Kufsteiner Alps, where you can splash in the cool, fresh spring water.
What you and your children are sure to enjoy is a swim in the very pretty and somewhat hidden Reintal lakes.
