Schwendt is a municipality at 700 metres above sea level in the district of Kitzbühel. It is home to 800 residents and lies in the Kaiserwinkl Region, in the foothills of the Kaiser Mountains.
The Wilder Kaiser Mountains with their craggy peaks giving way to lush meadows dominate the skyline above Schwendt. The highest mountain in the municipality is the Feldberg at 1,813 metres, home to the pretty St. Ägidius-Kirche church. Schwendt has managed to maintain its traditional charm and is therefore popular with visitors who wish to get away from it all and relax. Families will find a large adventure playground in the village, while the many hiking trails leading up into the mountains are a great way to explore the region on foot. There is also a small fishing pond. A little further away lie the pretty Walchsee lake and, in winter, the iconic ski resort of Kitzbühel.
