Kaltenbach, together with Ried and Stumm, is positioned in the heart of the valley, the so called "first holiday region in the Zillertal". Kaltenbach is the largest and best known among these three resorts. Thanks to the ring road, thorough-traffic doesn't exist here. The smaller and quieter village of Ried is right on the border of Kaltenbach. Stumm, on the opposite side of the valley, is approx. 1.5 km from the gondola to the ski area "Ski-optimal" and offers a special flair with its beautiful village square. All three districts have a modern tourist infrastructure with, among other amenities, indoor pools and various recreational attractions. In the middle of the ski area Hochzillertal lay the "Kristallhütte" and the "Wedelhütte", which are known to be two of the best ski huts in the Zillertal, and have already given shelter to many famous celebrities. Further, numerous restaurants offer regional specialities like traditional "Kasspatzen" pasta with cheese, home-made apple strudel, and "Kaiserschmarrn," sugared pancakes with raisins.
