The enthusiastic hiking landlady from St. Johann in Tirol


Christina Foidl from St. Johann in Tirol has already found her place of power in nature: the Wilder Kaiser mountain range in the middle of the Kitzbüheler Alpen. Here she can give her undivided attention to the important things in life and be close to herself.
For Christina hiking is a sporty balance to everyday life on one hand, while on the other it’s a huge reward that she makes to herself. What remains after every mountain tour is pure gratitude.

Music, the key to happiness

Apart from hiking, Christina loves being hostess to her guests on the Huberalm, which her family have owned for more than 16 years. In addition, she enjoys studying for primary school teaching and is a passionate musician. With the soft tones of her flugelhorn she plays first and foremost to the mountains, giving free rein to the language of music. She is convinced that “music expresses what cannot be put into words”.

Christina’s profile

  • checkMy power place in the Kitzbüheler Alpen ... anywhere from where I have the Wilder Kaiser in sight and the bench behind the Huberalm from where I have a nice view of my home.

  • checkWhat makes my native home special … Here tradition interacts with the contemporary. Our valleys make it possible to combine the liveliness in the village centres with the peace and quiet of the remote regions. That is very typical of the mountain world and makes it so unique.

  • checkWhat is my emotional connection to the Kitzbüheler Alpen and why … I grew up here and over the years could get to know numerous beautiful places.

"With every step i am further away from the valley, but closer to myself."
