At 800m above sea level on the Brixen Valley’s sunny plateau, Kirchberg in Tirol and neighbouring Brixen and Westendorf nestle between the breathtaking Hohe Salve mountain and the Kitzbüheler Horn. Unlike many other Alpine valleys, the Brixen Valley does not end in a valley head, rather it is open on both sides, linking the Inn Valley in the west with the Kitzbühel area in the east. A fantastic playground for all those looking for a special outdoor experience while hiking from the valley floor all the way to the summit. With our private guides, you’ll discover the Kitzbühel Alps hiking paradise with its 2,500km network of trails in a wholly new way – and in all its glory. Then, you can round off the day in the private spa, by the pool or in our double award-winning restaurant. Exclusive. Private. Indulgent. The 5-star Rosengarten Hotel in Kirchberg-Kitzbühel.

    Walk to the Pengelstein summit

    A magnificent hike with stunning views towards Aschau and Kirchberg, the summit hike to Pengelstein starts at Gasthof Skirast. From here it’s uphill to the Pengelstein I lower terminus, and past the Haindlbauer farm in Issbühel. Walking along the Aschauer Höhenweg ridgeway, you pass the Sporthotel and the Kälberwaldalm hut before arriving at the Hiesleggalm hut where two trails lead to the Pengelstein restaurant at 1,939m above sea level. Start: Gasthof Skirast, difficulty: moderate, elevation gain: 1,027m, overall walking time: 4h

    Walk to the Labalm

    Stunning circular walk to the Labalm mountain hut with views of the Grosser Rettenstein, starting at the Spertental Kneipp facilities in Aschau where the hiking trail to Unterer Grund begins. The waterfall on the right and the Falkenstein rock on the left offer an insight into the beauty of this unique landscape. We pass the Hintenbachalm mountain pasture where the Kasplatzl dairy invites you to tarry for refreshments. Afterwards, keep on the straight and gently rising path, past the turning for Labalm, and go deeper into the valley to Karalm. After a boom barrier, we reach a bridge where the path to the right leads up to Stockeralm and Angereralm. Just before Haglanderalm, switchbacks lead down to the Labalm and back towards Aschau via the Hintenbachalm.
    Start: car park in Ebenau, difficulty: moderate, elevation gain: 517m, overall walking time: 3h

    Grosser Rettenstein hike

    This hike requires walkers to be surefooted, experienced mountaineers with a good head for heights. We recommend an early morning start for this route. Start off from the Hintenbachalm, where a steep path leads through the forest to Schöntalgraben and Schöntalalm. Walk on and into the glorious high mountain valley, past Schöntalscherm, and up to Schöntalquelle where we recommend you enjoy a brief rest before you make your way to the summit. If you’re in luck, you may catch a glimpse of the resident marmots. The path continues with switchbacks. At this point, the ascent becomes more difficult, and you will need to hold on to the rocks in some places. There’s a short section before you reach the top where climbing is unavoidable, but then you’ll have made it to the summit of one of the Kitzbühel Alps’ highest mountains at 2,366m above sea level. On a clear day, you’ll be able to see the two highest mountains in Austria – the Grossglockner and the Grossvenediger – as well as the Zillertal Alps. Return by the same route. Start: Hintenbachalm, Unterer Grund, Aschau; difficulty: challenging; elevation gain: 1,300m; overall walking time: 6h
