St. Sigmund im Sellrain is a municipality with 175 inhabitants (as of January 1, 2020) in the Innsbruck-Land district in Tyrol ( Austria ). The municipality is located in the judicial district of Innsbruck .
St. Sigmund is the farthest and largest municipality in Sellraintal , a tributary of the Inn Valley (west of the municipality borders Stams at, but whose center is already in the Inn Valley). The municipality is also the highest settlement in the district.
The rear Lüsenstal with the towns of Praxmar and Lüsens is a popular ski touring and hiking area.

Hamlet of the municipality
Today's St. Sigmund Rotte Haggen is already mentioned in a document from 1152 to 1167 from Ottobeuren Abbey as "Gihage" with two Schwaighöfen there. St. Sigmund was a rest stop on the connection path from the Inn Valley to the central Ötztal. The community at the head of the valley was hit by severe avalanches in 1817 and 1970, which is why the hamlet of Alt-Peida was relocated in 1971/72 and built as Neu-Peida in the area of the St. Sigmund local church .
The last mayoral elections took place at the same time as the municipal council elections on March 14, 2010.
Karl Kapferer was elected mayor. He was the only candidate.
The party common ground for the ÖVP St. Sigmund-Praxmar was also the only one to run.
