Worgl

The industrial town of Worgl, at the fork of Inn river and Brixentaler Ache (a stream), is an important road and rail hub. The earliest settlement on the site, revealed by archaeological finds on the northeastern outskirts of town, date from the Bronze Age. In later years this was the site of a Roman settlement, and in the 4th century a Christian community was founded in the area. In the 13th century Worgl belonged to Bavaria; during the reign of Maximilian I it finally became incorporated into Tyrol. Worgl and its environs were the scene of fierce fighting during the Napoleonic wars, when the Tyrolean highlanders fought for their independence from the Bavarians and the French. A monument commemorating the battle now stands in front of St Lawrence’s church. This church, built in 1748, is Baroque in style and has interesting stucco decorations, vault paintings, a main altar with Baroque sculptures and an attractive medieval statue of the Madonna. Worgl’s location between the two tourist regions of Kaisergebirge and the Kitzbuhel Alps makes it a convenient base for winter and summer expeditions.
