The municipality of Rodeneck contains the frazioni (subdivisions, mainly villages and hamlets) Ahnerberg, Fröllerberg, Gifen, Nauders, Spisses, Sankt Pauls, Vill.

Rodeneck borders the following municipalities: Kiens, Lüsen, Mühlbach, Natz-Schabs, St. Lorenzen and Vintl.


The presence of non-local flint and quartz fragments suggest that the area was inhabited by hunters during the middle Stone Age (5000 BC). The discovery of middle Bronze Age forts dates permanent settlement to at least 1500 BC.

The community was mentioned by name for the first time in the Actum Rotungun of 1050 AD as a place that made donations to the bishop. In the following centuries, the name has appeared in a variety of forms.

At the start of the 19th century Rodeneck became an independent municipality, administered from 1822 by its own mayor. In 1926, the municipality lost its autonomy and became part of the municipality of Mühlbach, and then winning back its independence in 1955 after a long struggle.
