The pleasant tour starts at the outlet of the Brandenberg Stream and leads to the Weidach chapel. The impressive fountain in front of the chapel is an ideal spot to take a short break. Continue towards the Inn River and cross the bridge to Rattenberg. Many interesting things wait to be discovered by visitors to this small town. The town is home to several excellent restaurants and cafés, cultural rarities such as the Augustinian museum, the parish church or the old castle ruin with the Egon Schiele lookout point. Rattenberg is known for century old glass craftsmanship and the many glass shops are full of beautiful objects.  During a visit to the glass blowing workshop at Kristallglas Kisslinger visitors can experience this craft up close. Following a stroll through town walk back to Kramsach via the "Innspitz" viewpoint.
