Kufsteinerland

A fortress at its heart, the Kaiser Mountains on the horizon: the Kufsteinerland holiday region is characterised by towering mountains to the east and a lanscape of many lakes and rivers to the west.

From a medieval fortress to state-of-the-art spa facilities, the Kufsteinerland region offers the perfect combination of urban flair and traditional country living. Nine villages dotted along the lush green corridor connect the Kaiser Mountains Nature Reserve in the east with the more rolling landscape of hills and lakes in the west. The area offers activities and sports for outdoor enthusiasts, including a large network of hiking trails, as well as plenty of relaxation and cultural attractions. Dominated by a mighty fortress perched 90 metres above the town, Kufstein is well worth a visit and features historical gems such as the picturesque Römerhofgasse.

A haven of cycling and relaxation

Far from bustling and busy Kufstein lie a series of small villages such as Bad Häring, the only spa resort in Tirol and the perfect place to unwind. Today it is among the most popular health resorts in Austria and offers a wide range of therapies and relaxation programmes, including spa treatments and Ayurveda hotels. Nearby Erl is famous for hosting the annual Tiroler Festspiele and passion plays held every six years. The village of Thiersee also puts on passion plays which draw many visitors from near and far.

Horseriding enthusiasts should head for the village of Ebbs, known for its Haflinger breeding centre, while outdoor enthusiasts can try swimming and rafting or discover the area on two wheels using the 220km of cycle trails. One of the best mountainbike rides leads up to the Ackernalm, the highest cheese dairy in Tirol. Alternatively, why not take it easy by hiring an electric bike and exploring the Inn Cycle Path?

One sure sign that autumn is on its way are the traditional processions in the Kufstein region bringing cattle down from the high mountain pastures where they have spent the summer. During these events, which take place every Saturday in September, the cows often wear elaborate headpieces made of flowers.
