Our promise of quality

The tested and certified hiking region for even more experiences of nature!

As a true "hiking paradise" in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps, we have always endeavoured to provide our guests with maximum holiday enjoyment and hiking service. We have long been confident in our offer and regional expertise, and know what we can offer you here. But what exceeds even our own assessment and conviction? That’s the question that was on our mind for a long time and which in the end was to stand for even more hiking quality in and around the holiday resorts of Brixen im Thale, Kirchberg and Westendorf.

Hiking on the KAT-Walk

Austrian Hiking Quality Seal

All three townships of Brixental Valley are certified with the Austrian Hiking Quality Seal. The Hiking Quality Seal in its rating focuses on the complete offer of the region in its entirety. So it goes well beyond the hiking trails offered and their quality. The Hiking Quality Seal captures the "Magic of walking" as an entirety and rates the hiking experience much more comprehensively.

As a hiking destination it is our task to meet expectations and satisfy our guests’ entitlement to have experiences - in all facets and in all details. Logically, hiking trails were thus primarily tested and certified according to the experiences they offer.

But the objective performance criteria, which Brixental Valley meets, go well beyond this: As a certified hiking destination, publicly accessible hiking starting places are required, uniform, consistent signposting, high-quality edited maps and information material, an extensive, high-quality range of tours in the region as well as separately tested accommodation providers - our hiking specialists for your hiking holidays. Each subject area is tested individually and then rated as a whole - repeated every three years.

These are our promises to you:

  • checkCertified hiking specialists: Our tested hiking hotels and accommodation providers meet more than 140 established criteria, which offer you optimal service for all things hiking even before the very first minute of your holiday. Outstanding hiking expertise and advice are naturally as much part of the perfect offer, as our very own hiking-information desk, rental equipment, maps, guided tours of the house and ideal accessibility to the hiking infrastructure.

  • checkCertified hiking villages: Our villages act as "experience starting points" for a wide range of nature, culture and recreational experiences revolving around hiking. In doing so, they combine the excellent hiking trails with local hiking starting points and public general maps. Each of our villages offer almost daily guided hikes, their own, premium information material and hiking maps as well as excellent connections to the public local transport network (even free to use with the guest card!). More than 90 satisfied quality seal criteria speak a clear language.

  • checkCertified hiking trails: Making "The magic of walking" come alive - that is our objective. Our certified hiking trails promise a very special hiking experience. Perfect marking and signposting is a given. An understandable central theme of the hiking trails, general maps, hiking starting points and safe orientation that can be easily experienced is also included in the rating that applies more than 90 trail criteria.

  • checkSpecial hiking service of the region: It’s not so much the elaborate marketing strategy of the region or the location of the hiking trails so conducive to dramatic experiences, that provides hiking guests with added value. It’s the little things, such as free use of bus and train with a guest card, free, guided hikes with the local hiking guides or our popular “baby carrier rental” (carrying backpacks for infants). We up the ante a tad in everything we do, so that your hiking holidays become a true experience!
