Prettau and Kasern is located at an altitude of approximately 1600 meters a.s.l. at the end of the Ahrntal Valley, surrounded by the Zillertal Alps in the north and the Hohe Tauern. At the climatically favorable south side of the Alps, Prettau has an inner alpine climate. This, and the multiple passes and crossings have probably led to an early settlement.
In early 1400 copper was found in the Rötbach valley. A copper mine was built that gave people jobs for over 500 years. In 1893 the mining business closed.


Prettau offers scenic surroundings and magnificent views, a variety of hiking paths and challenging mountain climbs. The Rieserferner Natural Park forms, together with the National Park Hohe Tauern in the east, the largest protected natural area in Europe with a diverse mountain flora and fauna.

 

Today tourism is related to the visitor's mine tunnels and the asthma therapy is an integral part of the village.
Special crafts from Prettau are the ornate lace and wooden masks.
