Travelling by car & parking

We recommend that you have a car-free holiday, as the start and end point can be very easily reached with public transport and you will not need a car during your tour. All the information on having a relaxed and sustainable journey can be found above. Should you not have another option, we do of course cater for your car.

KAT Walk Alpine/Compact/Family:
You can park your car in the underground car park in Hopfgarten at the SkiWelt or alternatively at a free public car park. You can find detailed information in your KAT Walk info brochure, which is included in all Complete hassle-free packages. Please note that you will have to pick up your car at the end of the tour, especially on Sundays when public transport runs less frequently than during the week. You can also park your car at the end point of your hike and travel to the starting point by public transport, please let the last accommodation know in advance.

Return journey to the starting point

KAT Walk Alpine/Compact:
For your return journey from St. Ulrich am Pillersee to Hopfgarten, get on the bus from the hotel "Das Pillersee" at the bus stop "St. Ulrich am Pillersee Gemeindeamt" (diagonally opposite the hotel) to the railway station in St. Johann in Tirol or Fieberbrunn. At the Strasserwirt, the bus stop in front of the house is called "St. Ulrich am Pillersee Strasserwirt". From St. Johann or Fieberbrunn you can easily travel back to the starting point by train to "Hopfgarten in Tirol Berglift".

KAT Walk Family:
You can get from "Fieberbrunn" to "Hopfgarten im Brixental Berglift" directly by train. As the railway station in Fieberbrunn is a little away from our partner accommodation, please ask at the hotel what options there are for getting to the station.
