Kirchdorf - Facts and Figures
Picture-perfect Unterinntal Valley farmsteads, alpine meadows filled with flowers and ‘legendary’ hiking trails are what characterise Kirchdorf in Tirol. Whether spring, summer or autumn – it is at 640 metres altitude that the most impressive excursions into the realm of the two-thousand metre mountains of the Kaiser mountains begin. From Gasteig, one of the loveliest hikes proceeds through the natural paradise of the Kaiserbachtal Valley, via the Griesener Alm to the Stripsenjochhaus (1577 metres) and to the Feldberg (1813 metres). The route proceeds through the Teufelsgasse and is steeped in legend; a trip to one of the most original mountain pine distilleries in Tirol will help you breathe easily. Kirchdorf (2000 inhabitants) has retained the charm of a typical Tirol farm village, acquired over many centuries – hospitality and tradition are the order of the day. In the summer, horse-riders and cyclists will find tours to suit all their needs, while walkers can enjoy a stroll along the renaturated River Ache. During the snowy weeks of the year Kirchdorf in Tirol specialises in meeting the needs of beginners and families thanks to its open and well organised ski area. On a gentle slope, young and old alike who are new to skiing will quickly be able to practice their first turns, then after a few days can head to the quickly accessible ski areas in the Schneewinkel - with St. Johann in Tirol, Waidring, St. Ulrich am Pillersee and Fieberbrunn well-known pistes are right on our doorstep. Those of you who prefer to leave two tracks in the snow will enjoy the access to one of the most beautiful cross-country areas in Tirol - 250 kilometres of slopes are available for those with a passion for Nordic sports. Romantics can also head through the natural paradise in a horse-drawn sled – and bring an excursion to an enjoyable end with a steaming mug of mulled wine in a cosy inn or in a sophisticated guesthouse. Visitors to the Kaiserquell wellness experience get to experience hot and cold sensations - in summer an outdoor pool provides refreshment while in winter the sauna area ensures a cosy end to day of skiing.
