HistoryEdit

Several grave mounds around suggest a first settlement during the Iron Age. Schlat was mentioned for the first time in 1139.

BuildingsEdit

The Andreaskirche was built in 1472 at the highest point of Schlat; it is dedicated to Andrew the Apostle. The church was renovated in 1999. A special feature of the church is the sharing between the Catholic and the Protestant parish.
