Once upon a time, far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and deep in the Kitzbühel Alps, there was a valley that knew how to cast a magical spell on hikers. People travelled from far and wide to roam over the lush, green hills and climb rugged peaks. Hikers felt more at home here – among the alpine roses and cowbells – than anywhere else. The friendly hosts welcomed them at rustic huts, affirming the visitor’s love for the region.
But what are we talking about? This valley still exists, of course. With incomparable natural beauty and amazing huts, the region is still an absolute hotspot for hiking. It’s an honour for us to introduce you to our beloved Brixental Valley in Austria.
The four Tours in this Collection couldn't sum up the character of our valley any better as they all lead through magnificent landscapes and past at least one hut. On these hikes, you can climb endless peaks and explore wild valleys. In short, you experience the living and breathing Brixental Valley in all its colourful facets.
We know from experience that you shouldn’t just read our raving reviews about this place, you should feel it and experience the endless hiking trails, wonderful huts and the beautiful valley for yourself. The best thing to do is to hop on the train and set off. Regional trains arrive regularly into Brixen im Thale, Kirchberg and Westendorf stations (kitzbueheler-alpen.com/en/bri/getting-there/train.html).

At an impressive 1,829 meters high, the Hohe Salve is considered THE panoramic mountain in the Kitzbühel Alps. The nice thing is that you don't even need special skills or physical fitness to climb it - the summit is "flown to" directly with the gondola from Hopfgarten or Söll. On this tour you don't go up, but all around. A high-altitude path with great views, which of course does not skimp on culinary highlights.
