Kirchberg, Austria

A Stone's Throw From It's Famous Neighbour - But The Same Skiing!

A Stones Throw From Its Famous Neighbour - But The Same Skiing! Located within a snowball throw of Kitzbuhel, the charming and typically stunning Austrian village of Kirchberg has access to 56 lifts and cable cars and 165km of easy, medium and advanced slopes located between 800m and 2000m where there is never a shortage of snow as 129 snow machines provide cover (if needs be!)

From Kirchberg you can ski the world-famous Streif on Hahnenkamm or purchase the Kitzbuhel Alps Ski Pass which opens up the possibility of using 260 lifts and cable cars in an area serving 680km of ski runs for all levels of skiing ability. This is the Alpbach Valley to Waidring where you will never get bored as the choice of runs if practically endless".

For those requiring ski instruction, there are three ski schools with a total of 210 instructors, some specialising in carving while others teach snowboarding.

The village of Kirchberg, although small, has its own lift system with a gondola starting at Klausen and linking into a network of lifts both to Kitzbuhel and back to Kirchberg. You can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the village in the evenings or, if you fancy something more "lively", you can easily get to Kitzbuhel.

Kitzbuhel is only 4 miles away so a "stone's throw" for those with their own car. There is a railway link for those heading out for a drink and not wishing to drive (but check the train timetable for the evening!).If you are driving to Kirchberg from Calais, it will take 9/10 hours to Munich and a further 90 minutes to Kirchberg with easy access mainly on motorways. As you near the resort - and if there has been a recent heavy snowfall - you may require chains but in any event you must have them in the boot.

For the cross country enthusiast there are 45km of pisted course linking Kirchberg and Kitzbuhel but for alpine skiing, this is a great place to be based. You avoid the crowds of Kitzbuhel yet enjoy virtually the same facilities - and certainly the same slopes including the famous Hahenkamm. You can avoid evening "noise" if you are that way enclined as Kirchberg is more relaxed although the village does provide a good selection of bars, restaurants and provides its own nightlife.

Kirchberg, the heart of the Kitzbhel Alps. Definitely one of the most beautiful spots in Tirol to be spending your holiday. You will find everything you need for an active, as well as relaxing holiday. Less than 90 minutes by car from Munich, and approx. 1 hour from Innsbruck and Salzburg.
