The Schützen company

The Schützen company mission is to love their country and its inhabitants.  It aims to build solidarity and create a sense of community thus contributing to the nurture of culture.

Above all, culture should be experienced through the preservation of traditional customs reproduced according to historic criteria. The Schützen are a tradition of the old "Land Tirol", when in 1511, the King reigning at the time gave Tyrol the option to abstain from military service but guaranteeing the land protection of its borders if necessary.
