How do I reach the starting point of the KAT Walk in Hopfgarten im Brixental with the public transport?
KAT Walk Alpine/Compact/Getaway/Family:
The KAT Walk hosts in Hopfgarten can be reached easily and sustainably by public transport! Simply get off at the "Hopfgarten im Brixental - Berglift" train station, cross the road and you're there! The Sportresort Hohe Salve is located directly at the valley station of the gondola lift and the Familotel is up the road behind the tourist office on the left-hand side.
KAT Walk Connoisseur:
There are 2 accommodation options at the starting point for the KAT Walk Connoisseur, depending on availability: Hotel Alexander in Kirchberg or Gasthof Falkenstein in Aschau. The walk itself starts in Aschau. If you stay at the Hotel Alexander, you only need to get off at the train station "Kirchberg in Tirol" and walk a few minutes to the hotel.
You can also reach Gasthof Falkenstein by train to "Kirchberg in Tirol" and then by bus to the "Aschau bei Kitzbühel"/"Aschau Kirchberg in Tirol" stop (different names, same stop).
Where can I park my car during the KAT Walk?
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:
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.
