Brixental Kitzbühel Cycle Path

The Brixental Cycle Path leads from Wörgl in the Inntal valley through the Brixental valley to Kitzbühel, past the villages of Hopfgarten, Westendorf, Brixen im Thale and Kirchdorf in Tirol.

South of Wörgl near Bruckhäusl, at the entrance to the Brixental valley, the Brixental Cycle Path starts as a turn-off from the R14 mountain bike route (Wilder Kaiser). Through the narrow section of the valley below Itter, the path leads to Hopfgarten and then into the Windau Valley, where the route makes a larger loop through the gentle landscape before it proceeds up to Westendorf.

We continue on forest paths and side roads past the Westendorf Golf Club, Brixen im Thale, Kirchberg in Tyrol and finally reach Kitzbühel. On the northern side of the valley Mt. Hohe Salve rises up to the sky, in the south the Kitzbühel Alps. Shortly before Kitzbühel, the path proceeds to the bank of Lake Schwarzsee. At the finish there is a connection to the Leukental Cycle Path.
