Tux is a municipality in the Schwaz district in the Austrian state of Tyrol.GeographyThe parish of Tux covers the higher and largest part of the Tuxertal, a side valley of the Zillertal that branches off at Mayrhofen. The territory of the parish extends to the glaciated peak of Olperer and the high saddle of the Tuxer Joch, a crossing between the Zillertal and Wipptal valleys that was heavily used even in the protohistoric period. Other prominent peaks within the municipality are the high Gefrorene Wand Spitze and the high Hoher Riffler. The highest farmsteads lie at a height of.Tux consists of the five villages of Vorderlanersbach, Lanersbach, Juns, Madseit, and Hintertux.On 25 January 2005 the state government renamed Lanersbach to Tux because, although the municipality as a whole was called Tux, there was no actual village with the name.Vorderlanersbach is the first village along the road from Finkenberg. On the mountainside above lie the hamlets of Schöneben and Gemais. The farming settlement of Gemais at was placed under conservation protection as it has a historical coherence and unity of architectural style that date back to the 17th century. It developed from a former Schwaighof - a type of livestock farm typical of the Alpine region. The high hamlet of Geiseljoch lies on the way into the Inn valley that was once a busy trading route to the markets in Hall in Tirol and Innsbruck. From Vorderlanersbach there is a single-cable gondola lift to the Rastkogel skiing area, which in turn is linked to the nearby skiing areas of Penken and Eggalm.
