Steinach Ski Information
Visitors who wish to take a bit of a break from skiing, can venture to the nearest town of Wipptal, which offers a selection of activities available for entertainment. The Heilig Geist church is a wonderful place to enjoy a bit of sightseeing. The church was originally built in 1447 and was rebuilt in 1640, due to a fire which completely destroyed the structure. The church contains a stunning Romanesque-style altar which dates back to 1909. The St. Peter und Paul church is another site well worth a visit. This is one of the oldest churches in the region and was once mentioned in a document in 1236. The church was restored in 1980 and features a beautiful example of late Gothic and Baroque-style architecture.
