Returning to the starting point
How can I return from St. Ulrich am Pillersee to Hopfgarten in order to collect my car or go to Wörgl for international train connections?
With your Kitzbüheler Alpen guest card you can quite simply take public transport to return to the starting point within an hour! We recommend enjoying a good breakfast, then taking the bus and train link starting at 10:02 from St. Ulrich to Fieberbrunn train station. The bus stop is just across the street from your hotel! In Fieberbrunn you can then take a train at 10:22. You will reach "the Hopfgarten im Brixental mountain lift" at 11:00 for the parking facilities in Hopfgarten or "Wörgl" at 11:09 at the train station for international connections (As of: March 2020)!
If returning from the KAT Walk Beginners Tour from "Aschau bei Kirchberg" to Hopfgarten/Wörgl we recommend taking a bus link at 10:20 to Kirchberg town hall (a short walk from the train station)! From there you can continue at 10:35 with the same train as mentioned above!
If returning from the KAT Walk Connoisseurs Tour from St. Ulrich am Pillersee to "Aschau bei Kirchberg" you can also take the bus and train link described above to "Kirchberg in Tirol" starting at 10:02! From there it is a short walk to the "Kirchberg in Tirol town hall"! From there at 11:31 a bus departs for "Aschau bei Kirchberg" arriving at 11:46 (fare must be paid on the last bus)!
