Austria's Hiking Seal of Approval for the Brixental Valley

The Brixental Valley was elected as a "hiking destination" and the resorts of Brixen im Thale, Kirchberg in Tyrol and Westendorf are now proud to display their "Hiking Village" awards. Additionally, several businesses in the Brixental valley have been awarded the seal of "Hiking Operation".

Austria`s Association of Quality Assurance sets its goals, on one side its responsibility to tourism and on the other its support to enthusiastic active hiking guests. Based on the results of guest surveys over many years, the findings have initiated the new quality assurance programme, hence the "Austrian Hiking Seal of Approval".


The assessment takes place in three phases

Hiking Seal of Approval - Westendorf

The location's own survey must be carried out. The client receives a development-orientated criteria from which he evaluates the hikes. This can also be considered a type of inventory. Then the first experts are called upon to give an overview on-site, summarising their findings in a report. The last section requires a closer look at the finer details, which must also be recorded in digital form. Finally, if all the criteria have been met, the Austrian Hiking Seal of Approval is awarded.


The Austrian Hiking Seal of Approval captures the "Magic of Hiking" in its entirety

  • The hiking DESTINATION as a whole with levels of experience
  • The hiking VILLAGE as a contact point and entrance portal to the hiking experience
  • The hiking TRAIL as interative dramatically developed experiences
  • The hiking BUSINESS is the exhilaration of the hiking holiday
