At 1,829 metres above sea level, the Hohe Salve mountain in the Kitzbühel Alps offers fabulous 360° views of the surrounding region to which it lends its name.
With its towering peaks and lush meadows, the Hohe Salve region at the intersection between the Inntal Valley, the Mühltal Valley and the Brixental Valley is a paradise for hikers. The region takes its name from the Hohe Salve mountain in the Kitzbühel Alps and offers running and hiking enthusiasts a large network of trails leading up to 2,400m altitude. A little higher still, at 2,494m, stands the summit of the Torhelm with fantastic panoramic views. Also well worth a visit are the walking paths along the Rosenweg in Itter passing several flower-filled gardens as well as the ice and stalactite cave in Angerberg.
During the cold winter months, skiers and snowboarders can explore the nearby SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental, the largest single interconnected wintersports resort in Austria, while cross-country skiers and tobogganers will find plenty of trails catering for all abilities in the region’s eight villages.
Urban flair and peaceful lakes
The town of Wörgl in the Inntal Valley combines alpine nature and urban flair, making it one of the most popular shopping destinations in Tirol. Sports lovers in search of a little retail therapy should head for the M4 shopping centre, which has its own indoor rock climbing centre offering more than 20 pitches with overhanging sections of up to 12 metres. The region’s many rivers and lakes are also popular with visitors, including Lake Wildalmsee, Lake Salvensee and Lake Filzbodensee as well as the reservoirs in Kurzer Grund and Kelchsau.
