Excursions in Tirol

At one end of the shopping city of Woergl, on the other the traditional city of Kitzbuehel – and between the two cities the Brixental valley stretches at a length of about 30 kilometres with its villages Westendorf, Hopfgarten, Brixen and Kirchberg. The romantic side valleys are very scenic for hiking. The mountain “Hohe Salve” is one of the most impressive panorama mountains of the Eastern Alps.

Excursion tips

There’s plenty to discover in the Kitzbuehel Alps and the neighbouring regions. The Kitzbuehel grass mountains are home to numerous peaks up to 2,500 metres high. The natural gorges of Grießenbachklamm, Tiefenbachklamm, Wolfsklamm and Kundl are well worth a visit.

In and around the Brixental there are many family-friendly excursions, such as Ellmi’s magic world, Hexenwasser theme parks Söll, Alpinolino, Filzalmsee, Pillerseeland, and Tirassic Park.

The beautiful old towns of Kitzbuehel, Rattenberg and Kufstein are well worth a visit. And if you want to see how our ancestors would have lived and worked in times gone by, explore the silver mine in Schwaz or the farm museum Kramsach.
