The small place Tux in the Ziller Valley was first mentioned for the first time in the year 1280 and then it still belonged to Salzburg. At that time lived well a half-dozen low-mountain farmers in the village, due to the fact that it was located in the narrow valleys. In terms of tourism, Hintertux wasn’t developed until the beginning of the 1920s, when the first skiers from Vienna came to Tyrol, to practice winter sports. After the Second World War, the skiing holiday moved more and more into focus, the first slopes were prepared, and also the first chair lift was built.
