Settlement began in the third century; Erl is mentioned in documents dating back to A.D. 788. The village has hosted a Passion play every six years since 1613 as well as the more recently founded summer and wintertime Tyrolean Festival, founded by Gustl Kuhn, which is devoted to classical music and opera.
