    Outside the Church of St Lambert in the village of Lans is the village war memorial, dedicated to the memory of villagers lost in both world wars.

    St Lamberts Church 2 more images

    The attractive church of St Lambert in Lans dates back to 1369, but most of what i sthere now is from the 15th century when the church was reconstructed in the gothic style. The appearance of the church was altered in the 17th century to the present baroque style.

    Like all the village churches in this part of the Tirol, it's a pretty building on the outside but unfortunately I couldn't get more than a glimpse through the window of the inside as it was closed when we visited. It appears that this church may only be open for services which are Sunday at 8.45am and Tuesdays and Fridays at 7pm

    Lamb stew with carrots 2 more images

    Member of "chaine des rotisseurs" and "tiroler wirtshaus" this hotel/restaurant offers class,service and food from high standart. The menu contains only 3-4 sites , but more than enough to choose from. Most meals sounded delicious. We took the lamb stew , as I loove lamb and weren't disappionted. You get to eat with silver cutlery on a silver plate. What more can you ask for a treat?

    Favorite Dish: Lamb stew with carrots

    What makes the specific charm of this Gasthaus is the fact that it was able to conserve all its precious original interieur, the old wooden panelling. A 100 years ago and earlier mot of the traditional inns in Tirol were looking like that. But the upcoming touristic prosperity in the 1960-ies was fatal for most of them. The owners wnted to "modernize" their inns wiht the easily earned new money and destroyed that way most of the treasures they had, replacing them by cruelties which are now nicknamed "Lederhosenstil". The blessing ffor the Isserwirt were serious economic troubles under this time which did not allow him to follow this trend. So he had no other choice than just to let everything as it was and this resulted in the nice interieur this inn has today.

    Favorite Dish: They serve nice local dishes but I used to devour here seas of wine.

    Tram stop Lans-Sistrans 1 more image

    The scenic tram route (number 6) through the forest from Innsbruck calls at the stop Lans-Sistrans on it's way to Igls. This stop is just a short walk (about 5 to 10 minutes) from the village of Lans. Trams run once an hour in each direction (but it's just a short walk to Igls at one end of the line) and tickets can be purchased from the driver or in advance as IVB tickets for all the Innsbruck area public transport are valid on this line. It's well worth taking the trip into Innsbruck just for the scenery.

    Bus Route J

    Innsbruck's public transport system reaches out to Lans and the village has a twice hourly service on bus line J which goes from Lans to the Hungerburg station of the Nordkette cable car at the far side of the city via Igls, Vill and the city centre. Tickets can be purchased from the driver or pre-purchased tickets for the IVB transport system are valid on this route.

    Near the Lans-Sistrans Tram stop some 5 to 10 minutes walk from the village is a small shrine which is not in itself unusual for this area but there is one difference with this one - there appears to be what I would call masonic type symbols inside?

    The walking/hiking possibilities in this area are almost endless and suit a wide range of abilities/levels of fitness. There are a number of well (reasonably to excellently) sign posted recommended routes of differing lengths. The signs also tell you how hard the walk is as they are colour coded - blue for easy, red for medium, black for difficult.

    One of the walks I tried out was the easy Seenrunde route walk which is just under 3.4km and starts from the Lans-Sistans Tram stop. The first thing you will see is a strange roadside shrine with what appears to me to be masonic symbols(?) inside.

    The route then takes you past the golf course and through the forest, alongside a pond and a lake which is now a private outdoor swimming area (you need to pay to use this). Just over halfway round the sign posting goes a bit awry but just keep to the left hand path when it isn't clear and you should be ok. We did the walk on a morning after a rainy night and there were places where the path was somewhat muddy and slippery.

    If you keep quiet and look carefully in the forest area near the pond you'll probably see red squirrels.

    Equipment: Good boots that you don't mind getting muddy. Hiking poles aren't essential but might help. Oh, and a camera!
