Walking holiday

The Wildschönau is a walker’s paradise in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps. 300 km of well tended walking paths cover the area. The mountains here are not extremely steep or craggy, rather the landscape can be described as having gentle and grass covered mountains with meadows and walks through forests and ravines on the one hand, and on the other the peaks and high mountains which are dotted with characteristical, quaint alpine huts.

Delights in the mountains

No hiking day is complete without a stop at one of the rustic alpine huts! Delicacies such as "Pressknödel", "Kasspatzl" or a pretzel soup taste twice as good on the mountain. Tasty cheese is available at two cheese dairies. And you also have to try a "Krautinger", the unique beet schnapps of the Wildschönau!

Wildschönau Card

...and the special holiday plus:
In summer the cable cars, the open air pool, tennis, guided walks, Kid’s Dragon Club, Farming Museum, Silver Mine and much more are free with the Wildschönau Card.

Places worth to be visited:
The picture book hamlet of Thierbach is a special treasure with its church, school house (10 pupils make it one of the smallest schools in the country), two guesthouses and a few farms.
The Kundl Gorge is one of the loveliest natural ravines in Austria. To shorten the journey there, you can take the little Slow Train from Mühltal to the start of the gorge.
The Schönangeralm pasture with the cheese dairy is also on of the best starting points for hiking tours.
