Charming Kirchberg in the Kitzbühel Alps

Kirchberg in Tyrol is a charming village in the middle of the Kitzbühel Alps and is ideal for summer touring with lots to see and do. Our base, the superb Kirchberger Hof Hotel has it all – a fantastic location, warm welcome, excellent food and personal service!

Karina says...
“The Kirchberger Hof has a warm, cosy feel and is immaculate throughout! It has a great central location so is ideal for a wander into town.”
Day 1 Arrival
We receive a warm welcome from our lovely 4 star hotel in the Tyrolean region of Austria this afternoon and have time to settle in prior to dinner this evening.

Day 2 Krimml Waterfalls & Ziller Valley 177km/110 mile round trip
Today, we will travel southwards via the famous Thurn Pass and onwards to the Krimml Waterfalls to marvel at this impressive natural spectacle. The falls are Europe’s highest waterfalls with a drop of 380 metres and the fifth largest in the world. We then continue our journey along the famous Gerlos Pass and Ziller Valley.

Operator note: There are toll roads on this route.

Day 3 Kirchberg Driver’s Day Off
We will spend today at leisure in the famous resort of Kirchberg. We can take a short walk to the beautiful lake, relax by the water’s edge and take in the stunning view or explore the town’s shops and cafés before returning to our hotel in time for tea and cake.

Day 4 Grossglockner Alpine Pass 278km/172 mile round trip
This morning we take a scenic drive via Mittersill and Matrei into the beautiful Hohe Tauern National Park. We stop for lunch at leisure in the delightful village of Heiligenblut which nestles at the foot of the mighty Grossglockner, Austria’s highest mountain. From here we travel on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, one of the highest Alpine passes in Europe. The road opened in 1935 permitting exploration of an area previously closed to all except mountaineers (please note there are tolls on this route). During our journey we stop at the Franz-Josef-Höhe viewpoint to admire the outstanding scenery before continuing on our circular route back to our hotel via the market town of St. Johann.
