Charming and welcoming: Westendorf is a pretty village in the Kitzbühel Alps with a lively atmosphere and a growing population.
It goes without saying that Westendorf has plenty to offer adrenaline junkies, from exhilarating snowboard routes to excellent paragliding conditions and mountain bike trails demanding skill and strong nerves. Wintersports enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice at the Skiwelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental, Austria’s largest connected ski area.
However, the best way to enjoy this picturesque village in the Kitzbühel Alps is with a more relaxed approach. After all, Westendorf has much more to offer than just action and adventure. For example, as part of the famous “Entente Florale Europe” competition it was awarded the gold medal as Europe’s most beautiful village in bloom.
Despite its long history, Westendorf is today still a lively village with a growing population. It is close enough to the major tourism and business centres around Kitzbühel, yet at the same time far enough away to have maintained its own unique charm and relaxed character. A good way to experience a piece of genuine everyday life is with a visit to the “Schau zuichi Markt”, a farmers’ market held once a week in the village during the summer months.
