This is a charming but tiny city with some of the old buildings built into the rock-face. The main street is interesting to walk along and the metal decorations projecting out on many buildings are a real feature of the town. There are a number of glass-makers and it is possible to purchase some gifts which are not made in... More

We were informed by our guide that Rattenberg is the smallest city in Austria, after seeing most of the sites after an hour it.s was the quickest city tour ever. The glass works are a must to see with lots of interesting peices to buy. Also ample pavement cafes after your custom.

A morning explore round this quaint village and coffee in one of the many pavement cafes. Great place to buy souvenirs or gifts. Lots of local glass and even place to view the glass being made for free in back of one of the many glass shops.

Picturesque old town that's worth a stop if you're passing but not special enough to warrant a specific trip or a long visit. Most of the shops are either glass products or tourist souvenirs. There is one glass shop that is like a Tardis - it looks small on the outside but seems to go on forever into the rock... More

Rattenberg centre is pedestrianised and is lined with shops mainly selling their famous glassware, but there are plenty of cafes and restaurant too. It makes for a nice day out whatever the weather. Beware this can be a very busy place in the summer months especially if the weather is nice.

The town is very small and is next to River Inn. We took the local bus from Brixlegg to there. The selling point seems to be the glass blowing workshop.

This is a very charming and unspoilt town/city which is worth a visit. Many of the shops are glass themed as expected but there are many nice pavement cafes and a few ice-cream places. Well worth a visit.

We visited Rattenberg for a day trip from Alpbach - Rattenberg is a short walk from the Brixlegg bus and rail station. We've made this trip several times. Rattenberg is a perfect medieval gem - it's beautifully preserved and decorated (with lots of classic medieval trade signs like "Goldsmith"). Rattenberg is on the river and there's a nice river walk... More
