Zams is a municipality in the district of Landeck in the Austrian state of Tyrol.

Geography[edit]

It is situated in a river basin together with its neighbour town Landeck near the rivers Inn and Sanna. The geographical location is 47°28′N 10°22′E / 47.467°N 10.367°E / 47.467; 10.367. Here, the old roads coming from Vinschgau, Engadin, Bavaria and Lake Constance cross.

The free-standing church tower is a notable feature of the town. In 1911, a fire burned half the village to ash and destroyed much of the old man-made structures. The tower remained, and the church was established about fifty meters away.
