Kirchdorf

Though there are many places of the same name, there is one thing which makes Kirchdorf in Tirol different from all the other Kirchdorfs and Churchtowns around the world: its stunning location in the Leukental Valley at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser mountains.

If you type the name “Kirchdorf” into Google then you will find twelve places in the German-speaking world with this name as well as a further 20 sections of towns and villages in Germany, Austria and Switzerland known as “Kirchdorf” – not to mention the many “Churchtowns” dotted around England, Ireland and the United States.

The name “Kirchdorf” is, therefore, nothing special. It was often used in medieval times to refer to any settlement having its own church or even parish. However, there is one thing which differentiates Kirchdorf in Tirol from all the other Kirchdorfs and Churchtowns around the world: its stunning location in the Leukental Valley at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser mountains. Visitors will feel this special atmosphere which Kirchdorf shares with many other communities in the Tiroler Unterland region – a jovial, relaxed approach to life which is almost tangible and is reflected in the dialect spoken in Kirchdorf, of “Kischdorf” as it is known to those from the Kitzbühel area.

Talking of the dialect, those wishing to have a go themselves can start with the tongue-twisting term “oaschauscheich”, a word used to describe someone who has a fear of heights – definitely not good if you plan on exploring the mountains around the village!
