Ötztal train station (1963)

In 1883 the Ötztal station was opened on the Arlbergbahn . Businesses settled around this and a housing estate developed. The Hotel Ötztaler Hof was opened on Bahnhofplatz as the first larger building. To make it easier for railway and hotel staff and guests to attend Sunday mass, a neo-Gothic Lourdes chapel was built on Bahnhofplatz, which was consecrated in 1914 and looked after by the Haiming parish. As the town grew (1963: 850 inhabitants), the chapel became too small and a new church was built. In 1962 the foundation stone was laid for the new Ötztal-Bahnhof parish church , which was dedicated to St. Joseph the worker was consecrated. The Ötztal-Bahnhof elementary school was also opened in 1964. In 1970 Ötztal-Bahnhof was elevated to a parish and a cemetery was laid out, and in 1971 the Lourdes Chapel on Bahnhofsplatz was demolished.
