The village lies in Leutaschtal, high valley that extends for over 16 kilometres from Hohe Munde to northeast along Wetterstein Mountains and ends at Leutasch Gorge, which form border with Germany at Mittenwald. Valley is framed by other prominent peaks such as Hochwanner, Dreitorspitze and Arnspitze. The valley is a large rock basin formed by glaciers of the Ice Age and filled with gravel and lake sediments. The Leutascher Ache river flows through it. Gaistal valley leads between Wetterstein and Mieming Chain to west to Ehrwald Alm. Leutasch is protected to south from warm fohn and to the north from cold by Wetterstein. From the west, snow clouds have easy access through the Gaistal valley. This gives Leutasch very reliable snow conditions, with a mild summer climate at the same time. Settlement extends along roads in numerous hamlets. Leutasch was much more influenced by agriculture than the neighbouring regions around Seefeld and was therefore able to preserve cultural landscape of meadows and pastures with wetlands to the present day.

History

There is no evidence of human settlement in the Leutash area before the middle of 12 century. The area on River Leutasch is first mentioned in writing in 1278 in connection with the foundation by Bavarian nobleman, Bernard of Hausen, to Upper Bavarian Augustinian Monastery of Polling near Weilheim. At about the same time, Wilten Abbey was given estates and rights in this area, although its valleys were probably still completely forest at that time. Soon, first farmsteads and farmsteads were built in forest clearings. In 1294, Count Berchtold III of Eschenlohe, who had no children, sold his counties of Mittenwald and Partenkirchen, together with Wetterstein, to the Bishop of Freising, whose bishopric was thus elevated to Hochstift. Hochstift of Freising merges newly acquired counties with the predium of Garmisch, acquired in 1249, to form the County of Werdenfels. The first description of the border, in 1305, shows that part of Leutasch Valley belongs to the County of Werdenfels. In 1312, Duke Henry of Carinthia and Count of Tyrol acquired estates in Leutasch. In 1338, at the head of the Valley above Leutasch Gorge, 300 metres east of later Leutascher Schanze, he had a castle build, with outer and inner bailey and surrounding moat in a square layout. For their protection, Tyrol acquired further estates and Leutasch Valley went to Tyrol in 1500. Subsequent settlement of Leutasch Valley was slow but steady: by 1775, about 800 people lived in the valley and the population of Leutasch was recorded as 945 in the official 1826 census. The number of territorial lords also grown over the course of time to include the Tyrolean sovereign and Stams Abbey. These territorial lordships were abolish-as in the rest of Austria-in course of the revolutions of 1848 / 49. Although Leutasch Valley was off main communication routes, it was affected by several conflicts: during the Thirty Years' War, Leutasch and the neighbouring community of Seefeld suffered from major looting, while the rest of Tyrol was almost completely spared. During Bavarian Rummel, military invasion of Bavarian troops into Tyrol in 1703 in course of the War of Spanish Succession, Bavarian troops marched over mountain Path on Grunkopf-later called Franzosensteig-and thus bypass Tyrolean fortifications of Porta Claudia in Scharnitz Pass at the start of Leutasch Valley, which protected Tyrol from invasion from north via Mittenwald. Bavarians thus enter Tyrol through Leutasch and Seefeld. In the course of 1703, further fighting took place in the area of the Pass fortifications near Scharnitz and Leutasch. During the 1805 campaign by Napoleon against Austria, French troops, coming from the north, besieged Scharnitz and Leutasch passes. Following the example of Bavarian troops hundred years earlier, they reached Leutasch via Franzosensteig and were able to capture Scharnitz Pass via Seefeld.

Entering the Leutasch Gorge

In the Olympic region Seefeld, in Leutasch, you can visit a very impressive canyon. The parking space and gate to the legendary Spirit Gorge are located in the district of Schanz, close to the German border. This is also where walking across the world of ghosts and elfs starts. It's eerie place and a world of water and stone: in Leutasch Spirit Gorge Ghost is up to mischief. This is where they live together with Gorge goblins and water dwarfs. What is so special in the 75 metres deep canyon is its modern steel footbridge, as normally wooden footpaths and bridges are instal-in summer months it leads you high above the Leutascher Ache River and along majestic rock face. Leutaschklamm can be explored on three different paths: 3 km long Spirit Gorge Trail includes an 800 m long walkway. Information panels along 1. The 9 km long Goblin Trail, however, tell about stones and rocks in the Gorge, and about glaciers which form Gorge during the last Ice Age. It leads from little shop at the entrance to Gorge in Mittenwald into a mighty canyon. The third path, 200 m long Waterfall Trail, ends at a 23 m high waterfall.
