St. Nikolaus – landscape, art and culture
Altitude: 1,256 m
Surrounded by numerous old mountain farmhouses and meadows, the village of St. Nikolaus is situated on the sunny valley side slope. Here the church is both figuratively and literally at the heart of the village. The gothic church of St. Nikolaus dates from the year 1338 and stands out thanks to its neo-gothic winged altar and splendid carved figures.
Another of the village's principle attractions is the Ulten Valley Museum, which is housed in an old Ulten Valley farmhouse. Rural cultural treasures and works of folk art from the past are exhibited here, such as machinery, furniture, items of clothing, handicrafts and religious relics. In addition, you can also learn about the varied local wildlife, including golden eagles, bears and wood grouse.
