Home of Andreas Hofer

St. Leonhard is the birthplace of a historical celebrity that has played an important role in the history of Tyrol: Andreas Hofer, the owner of Sandwirt inn from St. Leonhard and Tyrol’s most popular freedom fighter. He was the leader of the Tyrolean popular revolt against the Bavarians and Frenchmen in 1809. He was had several victories during the battles, such as during the popular Battles of Bergisel near Innsbruck.

His birthplace, that is located at a small distance to the village centre, houses the MuseumPasseier today. It is dedicated to this famous son of St. Leonhard and to the traditions of Passeiertal and simultaneously integrated the museum of local history with a large outdoor area.

St. Leonhard also has many other worth-seeing attractions: the parish church, the French’s cemetery, St. Hippolyte church in Glaiten, the typical "Schildhöfe" farms as well as the medieval Jaufenburg Castle. A recommended excursion is also the Pfistradalm, a historical settlement with a small museum, that can be reached on a cosy hiking path starting in St. Leonhard.
