Hiking in spring

Hikes in the valley and up to the middle station.

On the mountains there is currently still some snow.

Up to about 1,200 meters, most of the hiking trails should already be free of snow. We have put together a few hiking destinations for you.


Bichlach Rundwanderweg

Bichlach – The pond paradise

The Bichlach is the hilly section between Reith and Kitzbühel and is crisscrossed with an extensive network of trails. The original hummocky moorland around the Bichlach was formed by glaciers of the last ice age and today reminds of an English country estate.

The Bichlach area in Reith with its waters such as the Gieringer Weiher and Vogelsberger Weiher is an ideal recreational area for hikers and walkers. Many numerous hiking trails lead to ever magnificent views and past beautifully maintained Tyrolean houses and farms.

You stroll along the wide paths of the "Bichlach" through forests and beautiful clearings that reveal "calendar pictures": Farms on hills, behind them the Wilder Kaiser, also the Kitzbüheler Horn appears again and again. To the south, the Hahnenkamm shows itself.

Gondelfahrt zum Kitzbüheler Horn

Kitzbüheler Horn lifts I and II - in summer operation from 8 May

After a short breather, the Bergbahn AG Kitzbühel starts on May 8 with the summer operation of the Kitzbüheler Hornbahnen I and II. At the top station, the Alpenhaus am Kitzbüheler Horn is open for takeaways at the valley station of the Kitzbüheler Hornbahnen, the Phoenix Kitzbühel at Hornplatzl is open for takeaways. The flowers in the Alpine Flower Garden are still in hibernation, just enjoy the view from the Kitzbüheler Horn down into the valley, but beware there is still some snow on the mountain. Mother's Day Special - Mothers ride the Kitzbüheler Horn cable cars for free on Sunday, May 9. Our hiking tip: Start from Kitzbühel via the Hagsteinweg up to the Adlerhütte. The observation bench at the Adlerhütte invites you to take a break and enjoy the view from the Wilder Kaiser over the Brixental to Jochberg and the Hohe Tauern. From the middle station you can either take the Hornbahn II to the Alpenhaus or "gondola" down to the valley with the Hornbahn I.

Sintersbacher Wasserfall

Sintersbacher water fall

The impressive natural spectacle can be marveled at at an altitude of 1298 meters: the Sintersbach plunges 85 meters into the depths here, not far from Jochberg. A place where you can wonderfully recharge your batteries. One or the other hiker may also need this. Because on the 9 kilometer long, moderately difficult route from Jochberg, there are 648 meters of altitude to overcome. About 4 hours should be planned for it.


Wildpark Aurach

The Aurach Game Park delights with its unique location with panoramic views of the Kitzbühel Alps and of course with its animal inhabitants. Wander through the game park and meet red deer, fallow deer, mouflon in Tyrol's largest outdoor enclosure as well as rock deer, lynx, yaks and many other animals. To ensure that the animals are kept in a manner appropriate to their species, the Aurach Game Park is also a member of the Austrian Game Park Association. For the little guests the petting stall offers itself. All animals in the petting barn may be stroked. Llamas, sheep, Shetland ponies, donkeys, goats, rabbits and guinea pigs are at home in the large stable.


Schleier water fall

The Schleier Waterfall is located above Kitzbühel on the Kitzbühel sunny side. Starting point is the parking lot in front of the tennis stadium. Along the Köglerbach brook you walk up to the Schleierwasserfall. After the Köglern farmhouse, the trail becomes a bit more challenging in terms of its incline, but the waterfall is a reward for the effort of the ascent. After the waterfall, the hike leads to the Waltenberg farmhouse, with a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains and Kitzbühel. Along the Ebner Chapel it goes back to Kitzbühel.
