Scharnitz is a municipality in the district of Innsbruck-Land 16.4 kilometres (10.2 mi) north of Innsbruck and 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) from Seefeld in Tirol on the German border. It is one of the largest municipalities and has 12 parts. The village was founded in the early Middle Ages and was once an important commercial route between Germany and Italy. The number of inhabitants has been increasing because of immigrants from Germany and UK. The main source of income is tourism, both in summer and winter.
