Description

So close to the traditions
The start of this theme trail is the Hornparkplatz. The Kitzbühel Hornbahnen were put into operation in 1951. The fact that the Kitzbüheler Horn has always had a special place in Kitzbühel's history is due to Franz Reisch, who in 1892 was the first person to ski down the Kitzbüheler Horn.

We continue along the Hornweg in the direction of Griesenauweg. Here you will find a prime example of early Kitzbühel hotel pioneers on the right-hand side. The history of the luxurious 5-star Hotel Tennerhof dates back to 1737. The great-grandmother of the current owner, Countess Schall Riaucour, purchased the property and the associated farm in 1927 and laid the foundation stone for an accommodation business after World War II. Ian Flemming, author of James Bond, also spent some time there.

After a short stop, the hike continues along the Römerweg and simultaneously towards the outskirts of the town. Looking back from there to the centre of the town, some representatives of the villa and hotel architecture of the last century can still be seen today. The architecture is characterised by its natural stone walls, medieval timber-framed constructions, spacious glass verandas and balconies and is today complemented by modern hotel buildings, which, as in many other alpine winter sports destinations, are increasingly expanding towards the outskirts of the village.

Also on the Römerweg is the next and last stop on the theme hiking trail, the Hinterobernau Farmhouse Museum. The farmhouse from the year 1559 of the Salzburg-Tyrolean built-in type, furnished as it was 100 years ago, shows the rural life before the arrival of tourism in the region around Kitzbühel. The farm is fully equipped with tools and equipment, a smoke kitchen, parlour, sleeping chambers and stable. 

The way back is via Vordergrub down into the valley and then along the Achenpromenade back to the starting point.
