Franz Senn (19 March 1831 in Längenfeld (Ötztal) - 31 January 1884 in Neustift im Stubaital) was a pastor, whose concern for the poverty of his parishioners lead him to encourage tourism into the Stubai, and in particular he fostered the early development of mountaineering in the region. He was a founding member of the Austrian and German alpine associations. The Franz Senn Hütte and the Sennkogel are named after him.
