Exploring Kirchberg in Tyrol in spring
The best places and activities
Are you feeling melancholic just thinking about putting your skis away for summer? You don’t have to! In Tyrol, there’s attractions for all year round and many events are worth a visit. Let us present you our favourites for a varied spring programme.
Many of the things to do in Tyrol have to do with mountains. Where we like to ski in winter, it’s just as nice to enjoy the panoramic view in the warmer months. Our hotel is located right in the middle of the Kitzbühel Alps, so it’s in optimal position for a great number of hiking tours on all levels of difficulty. If you want to climb high, we recommend the mountain top Großer Rettenstein (2,366 m above sea level), the most prominent peak of the Kitzbühel Alps and the Spertental Valley near Kirchberg. The view up there is simply amazing!
Mountain bike trails
Don’t like hiking shoes? No problem: Many places to visit in Tyrol are easily reachable by mountain- or e-bike. In fact, many trails surround our hotel in Kirchberg, which wait to be explored and mastered by you. Among them are the “Lisi-Osl-Trail”, the “Fleckalm Trail” (one of the longest in Tyrol) and the “Gaisberg Trail” for the experts. We are also very proud to be the home of the first MTB school in Austria – there, you can also rent out mountain bike equipment.
Trips with children
In Kirchberg near Kitzbühel, many activities are ideal for families and children. We dare you to try out some of these day trip ideas with your little ones – we’re sure you will enjoy yourself just as much as them. We recommend a trip to Lake Filzalmsee, including nature discovery stations and a giant sand pit or the Goasberg Mystery Tour with 8 mystery stations, 4 forest slides, a mountain lake and petting zoo. There, you will learn lots of interesting facts about nature and its inhabitants in a playful setting.
In Tyrol, some activities take you to literal heights, while others take you to figurative heights. The many culinary highlights of the region are certainly an example for the latter kind. That’s the many restaurants in Kirchberg itself, which cover the whole palette from plain fare to haute cuisine, all while having the quality of the products used at the forefront of their minds. On the other hand, rustic alpine huts, cozy bars and highlights like the Kasplatzl cheese dairy are waiting to serve you their varied delicacies as well.
Hornpark climbing forest
You are wondering what to see in Tyrol which will enthuse young and old alike? Then you might want to visit the Hornpark climbing forest. It’s the largest high ropes course in the Kitzbühel Alps and comes with over 85 different attractions, including 8 courses at all levels of difficulty and a course for children from the age of 3, a slackline area, and a climbing wall. And for all the connoisseurs among you, it also offers segway tours to Aggstein Schnapsalm distillery, where you can taste fine liquors and discover how the original Austrian Schnapps is made.
Want to know even more things to do in Tyrol as an active and outdoor enthusiast? How about having a go at mountain cart driving? On three wheels, the mountain cart takes you down the route between the middle and valley stations of the Harschbichlbahn cable car. You can ride alone or in pairs and at your preferred pace. Your safety is guaranteed thanks to a modern breaking system used also in motor vehicles. The route is 3.8 km long and includes some tricky turns, steep passages and an amazing view of the Kaiser Mountains.
As you can see, in Tyrol the events don’t run out quickly, and that goes for every season. You know what else you can count on all year round? The first-class wellness and culinary pampering programme at Hotel Elisabeth, which is just what you need after an action-loaded day outdoors.
