Farmhouses in the Kitzbühel Alps

On the trail of inherited tradition.

Stage 1:Traditional farmhouses along the route
The magnificent farm houses along Stage 1. from Hopfgarten to Kelchsau, with their typical bell towers mounted on the gabled roofs, belong to some of Tyrol's most beautiful farms. The regions's farmhouses have not least their artistically ornate balconies and access balconies to thank for their outstanding beauty. Most of the cone-shaped bell towers had the former purpose of informing the farm labourers that the meal was ready and it was time to eat.

Many of the farm houses display the sign "Erbhof", often decorated with a floral surround, indicating that the farm has been within the same family for over 200 years and continuously farmed.
