Kitzbüheler Alpen - Region St. Johann in Tirol

Sport and leisure in the Kitzbühel Alps
A special holiday feeling between the Kitzbüheler Horn and Kaisergebirge peaks.

The picturesque towns of St. Johann in Tirol, Oberndorf, Kirchdorf and Erpfendorf are situated between the key mountains of the Kitzbühel Alps with the Kitzbüheler Horn on one side and the striking Kaisergebirge on the other.

The four towns are an attractive holiday destination of the highest calibre as a core feature of the Kitzbühel Alps. Sporty and active holidaymakers, nature lovers and families can enjoy pure pleasure in the Kitzbühel Alps: sport and relaxation in the gently rolling grassy hills and steep mountain peaks, adventure and entertainment as well as authentic Tyrolean hospitality and culinary delights.

A hotspot for bikers
Several hundred kilometres of cycle paths and mountain biking trails weave their way throughout the Kitzbühel Alps. Altitude can be conquered and bike trails defeated or else you can enjoy a leisurely cycle ride along the wide valley bottoms, past inviting rest stops and impressive showcases of nature. The varied tours provide beginners and professional bikes with excitement and variety. Any climbs which prove too challenging for leisure cyclists can be completed by e-bike. Bike hire and battery charging and changing points are available. At the end of August, the picturesque valley at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser is transformed into a meeting place for racing bikers from across the world battling it out for personal victory on the spectacular route of the Cycling World Cup.

The region of St. Johann in Tirol puts you in the mood for a walk
The varied landscapes of the Kitzbühel Alps can be explored in-depth on foot and nature can be discovered at close hand. Nature lovers can follow the well-marked footpaths and forest trails across the mountain meadows, climb the high mountain peaks, discover the romantic mountain lakes and waterfalls or climb the various gorges and ravines. Themed walks, educational trails and guided tours with certified mountain and walking guides promise to offer some unforgettable holiday moments. The ‘Adlerweg’ (eagle’s trail) runs across the entire state, starting out in St. Johann in Tirol and symbolises the wings of the eagle.  The trail then passes through the Karwendel mountains to St. Anton am Arlberg and into the Lechtal valley. The Kaisergebirge peaks are among the most popular and significant climbing areas in the European Alps. There are many renowned tours and peaks here to set the pulses of mountaineers racing such as the Fleischbank, Teufelskanzel, Ellmauer-Tor and Ackerl- und Mauckspitze. The ‘Kaiser’ certainly offers some unique conditions for Alpine walking, leisurely climbing and breath-taking sporty climbing.
