Kitzbüheler Alpen St. Johann in Tirol
Sport and Culinary Pleasures in the Kitzbühel
Alps A very special holiday feeling between the Kitzbühel Horn and Kaisergebirge
In the midst the most striking mountains in the Kitzbühel Alps, the Kitzbühel Horn on the one side and the distinctive Kaisergebirge on the other, lie the picture perfect villages of St. Johann in Tirol, Oberndorf, Kirchdorf and Erpfendorf.
As part of the Kitzbühel Alps, the four Tyrolean villages present themselves as attractive, high-class holiday destinations. Sporty and active holidaymakers, nature lovers and families will be excited about what the Kitzbühel Alps have to offer: sport and recreation on grassy hills stretching up to the soaring mountain peaks, adventure and entertainment plus authentic Tyrolean hospitality and culinary delights.
A hotspot for bikers
Several hundred kilometres of cycle and mountain bike paths run through the Kitzbühel Alps. Tackle the vertical metres and conquer the challenging bike trails, or simply enjoy a leisurely ride along the broad valley floor past inviting rest stops and impressive places of natural beauty. The wide range of tours promise beginner and professional cyclists alike excitement and diversity. Thanks to the invention of e-bikes, recreational cyclists can also take on the otherwise demanding ascents. E-bike rental, battery charging and exchange stations are all on hand here. At the end of August, the picturesque valley at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser turns into a “rendezvous point” for cyclists who come from all over the world to compete along this spectacular stretch of the “Radweltpokal” and World Cycle Masters.
The Kitzbühel Alps make you want to go hiking
On foot, the diverse landscape of the Kitzbühel Alps truly comes alive as you get right up close with the natural wonders of the region. On well-signed hiking paths and forest trails, nature lovers can hike over Alpine pastures, conquer high mountain peaks, explore wildly romantic mountain lakes and waterfalls or climb through gorges and canyons. Themed walks, nature trails and guided tours with certified mountain and hiking guides promise unforgettable holiday moments. Following the outline of an eagle’s wings, the Adlerweg (Eagle’s Trail) hiking route, which covers the entire province, starts in St. Johann in Tirol and proceeds through the Karwendel range to St. Anton am Arlberg and into the Lech Valley. The Kaisergebirge (Kaiser Mountains) are among the most striking and most popular climbing areas in the European Alps. Many well-known tours or summits, including the Fleischbank, Teufelskanzel, Ellmauer-Tor and Ackerl and Mauckspitze, for example, are guaranteed to get all mountaineers’ hearts racing. Thus the “Kaiser” offers unique conditions for Alpine hiking, leisurely rock climbing and breathtaking sports climbing.
Golf at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser
In the Kitzbühel Alps, lovers of golf are spoiled for choice: 13 beautifully maintained golf courses surrounded by unmistakable Alpine scenery and international flair await, while five others are located within 80 kilometres. The award-winning Lärchenhof golf and country club in Erpfendorf is one of the most beautiful golf courses in Austria. The many golf schools and academies allow beginners to discover the fascination of this sport and achieve the “Platzreife” proficiency certificate, while experienced golfers can improve their handicap.
Let the adventure begin
