Excursion tips

Kitzbühel 365° – ideal for day trips

There is a lot on offer in our neighboring villages of Reith, Aurach and Jochberg, with a wildlife park, exhibition mine and farmhouse museum only a stone’s throw from Kitzbühel. But there is also much to discover in the surrounding regions, be it a visit to a schnapps distillery, a gorge hike or a tour to Austria’s highest mountain – the Großglockner. How about a short break to the fortress town of Kufstein or the state capital Innsbruck, or even a quiet day fishing on the lake? There is something here for all of our guests to enjoy.

Add a touch of variety to your holiday by visiting a show operator and see how things are made in person!

Keen to sample some cheese? Visit the Kasplatzl in Aschau, theWilder Käser in Gasteig or the Niederkaseralm in Kelchsau.

Enter the fascinating world of glass and glass making at Riedl, the wine glass company in Kufstein, or by visiting Kisslinger Glas in Rattenberg

Keen to learn more about the Middle Ages? Here are some suggestions:

Kufstein Fortress
Kufstein Fortress is the town’s most famous landmark and one of Tirol’s most impressive medieval buildings. The fortress is often erroneously referred to as the Geroldseck fortress.
The fortress is situated on a hill above the town of Kufstein on a 90-m-high rock directly on the banks of the Inn river. It is accessible via an inclined lift.

Tratzberg Castle

A renaissance gem amongst Austria’s castles
Tratzberg was first mentioned in a document in the 13th century. It first served as a border fortress against Bavarian incursion and then as a hunting castle for Emperor Maximilian I. Unfortunately, the original fortified castle was completely destroyed in the late 15th century as a result of a fire.

Schloss Mittersill Castle
Located along the northern slope of the Salzachtal valley on an outcropping high above the valley floor, the castle has been a key strategic point since the Middle Ages. It served as a control point for the Oberpinzgau valley road as well as the pass roads to Tirol, which lead from there to Pass Thurn in the north and to the Felber Tauern in the south. The area was particularly important for transalpine traffic between the 10th and 14th centuries.

Keen to cool down? We recommend the following excursion:

Breathtaking – One of Europe’s highest waterfalls The Krimml waterfalls

Water, rock and electricity: The impressive Kaprun Reservoir high above Zell am See-Kaprun

Ascend Austria’s highest mountain, the Großglockner at 3798 m

The Zeller See Lake is located entirely within the municipal area of the town of Zell am See in Pinzgau in the Salzburger Land region. It was formed about 10,000 to 16,000 years ago at the end of the last ice age by the erosion of ice masses belonging to the northern Glockner group mountain range.

At 380 m above the Inntal valley, the beautiful Achensee lake is situated just north of Jenbach in Tirol. Along with the Achental valley, it forms the border between the Karwendel mountains in the west and the Brandenberger Alps in the east.

The Chiemsee lake is sometimes referred to as the Bavarian Sea. With an area of 79.9 km², it is the largest lake in Bavaria and the third largest lake in Germany after Lake Constance and Lake Müritz. Bavaria’s Starnberger See lake, for instance, has a water volume that is only half the size.
