Enjoy a few tips from us for a varied day of vacation!
In case the weather in Kitzbühel is unfortunately a little less than ideal, there is no need to worry. With a wide range of leisure activities, whether sporting or cultural, you won't get bored in Kitzbühel anytime soon. From great day trips to an exciting selection of museums - there is guaranteed something for everyone.
A trip to cool off, to experience and to visit we can recommend:
Breathtaking - Europe's largest waterfalls Krimmler Wasserfall
Imposing world of water, rock and stream high above Zell am See-Kaprun Stauseen Kaprun
To the highest mountain of Austria with 3798 m, the Großglockner
The Zeller See, is located entirely in the municipality of Zell am See in the Pinzgau region of Salzburg. It was formed at the end of the last ice age about 10,000 to 16,000 years ago by an excavation caused by the ice masses of the northern Glockner group.
The Achensee is located north of Jenbach in Tyrol, 380 meters above the Inn Valley. It forms with the Achental the border between Karwendelgebirge in the west and Brandenberger alps in the east.
The Chiemsee also called the Bavarian Sea, with an area of 79.9 km², is the largest lake in Bavaria and the third largest lake in Germany after Lake Constance and the Müritz. In Bavaria, however, Lake Starnberg has half the water volume.
Immerse yourself in the Middle Ages? Our suggestions for this:
The Kufstein Fortress is the landmark of the town of Kufstein and is one of the most imposing medieval buildings in Tyrol. The fortress is often mistakenly called Geroldseck Fortress.
It is located on the fortress hill above the city of Kufstein on a 90 m high rock directly on the Inn River and can be reached by inclined elevator.
Renaissance jewel among the castles of Austria.
The castle was first mentioned in documents in the 13th century and, as a former border fortress against Bavaria, already served Emperor Maximilian I as a hunting lodge. However, the original fortress was completely destroyed by fire in the late 15th century.
Situated on the northern slope of the Salzach Valley, on a spur high above the valley floor, the castle has served since the Middle Ages as a strategic control of the valley road of the Upper Pinzgau and the pass roads to Tyrol, which stretch from there to Pass Thurn in the north and the Felber Tauern in the south. The area was particularly important for transalpine traffic between the 10th and 14th centuries.
A visit to a show farm is certainly worthwhile.
- For cheese tasting to the Kasplatzl in Aschau, to the Wilder Käser in Gasteig or to the Niederkaseralm in Kelchsau.
- Learn everything about glass and glasses at Riedl - the wine glass company in Kufstein or at Kisslinger Glas in Rattenberg.
- Also worth seeing are the Münzprägung in Hall and of course the Planetarium in Schwaz.

The Swarovski Kristallwelten in Wattens were opened in 1995 on the occasion of the company's centenary. The multimedia artist André Heller thus designed a unique place of fantasy. To date, this popular sight and excursion destination in Tyrol has provided moments of wonder to more than 15 million visitors from all over the world. Visitors have been surprised, touched, perhaps even transformed by crystal in all its facets.

Bathing fun and wellness for the whole family. If you don't feel like visiting a museum and just want to relax, we recommend the Badezentrum Aquarena. Relax in the modern sauna area, then cool off in the snow room. Or enjoy a massage? The two adventure slides are especially popular with children. In the 25-meter sports pool you can really work out.
Das Heimatmuseum is located in downtown Kitzbühel (Hinterstadt). Worth seeing and informative. A great insight into the history and culture of our town and region. From mining to winter sports with Toni Sailer, member of the legendary "Skiwunder-Team" up to Alfons Walde (1891-1958), with his paintings he has challenged the sportive activity as well as he has influenced it essentially. Over 60 paintings by Alfons Walde, the great Kitzbühel painter, can be admired on the premises. Worldwide his paintings are popular and well known. Interviews with Toni Sailer, Ernst Hinterseer and other members of the Kitzbühel skiing wonder team can be heard at the listening station.
Above the Kitzbühel Hornbahn on the Römerweg, idyllically located at the foot of the Kitzbühel Horn, is the Bauerhausmuseum Hinteroberau. The typical Salzburg-Tyrolean farmhouse with its outbuildings, such as laundry, chapel, oven, bee hut, threshing floor and cart hut, has been lavishly restored and turned into a museum. Equipped with tools from the good old days, one could immediately mow the surrounding meadows, by hand of course. The furnishings in the farmhouse are original and are lovingly cared for and cherished. From time to time weddings or various events take place in the beautiful garden. A visit to the farmhouse museum is worthwhile in any case.
Der Sportpark Kitzbühel moves! Sports, fun and games united under one roof for the whole family, groups from big to small. On an area of 4,500 m², a diverse range of offers opens up under one roof - open all year round, weather-independent and versatile. From the climbing towers to the bouldering areas to the tennis hall or the bowling alley. Actively organize your leisure time at the Sportpark Kitzbühel.
Regional Krampus tradition on display at the Krampusmuseum. The brave among you should definitely visit the museum. In the Kitzbühel Sports Park, under the tennis tribune, the local "Ruatn Pass" has set up a museum. Here, scary Krampus masks and costumes are put on display. On over 300 m² there is great craftsmanship to marvel at.
An excursion for any weather. Young and old are sure to have fun when visiting the Wildpark in Aurach. Only 5 km away from Kitzbühel. Here, the Pletzer family lovingly cares for over 200 animals in Tyrol's largest outdoor enclosure. Ideal also to go with the stroller. Since winter 2020, a few new residents have been added, such as alpacas, Alpine stone sheep, wild cats, snowy owls, barn owls, little owls as well as falcons. After the tour in the game park, enjoy local delicacies with a panoramic view in the Branderhofstube.
A visit to the Museum? Not only a change for young and old. But absolutely worth seeing! To see long ago working methods of our homeland. Exhibits lovingly collected bring back memories of the "GOOD OLD TIME". Open all year round, every Tuesday from 5 to 7 p.m..
