Alpine Flower Garden Kitzbüheler Horn

The Alpine Flower Garden at Mt. Kitzbüheler Horn boasts the most beautiful alpine flowers on an area of 20,000 sqm

The Alpine Flower Garden Kitzbüheler Horn (Alpenblumengarten Kitzbüheler Horn) near Kitzbühel was inaugurated in 1985. In a walk up to the peak, you can choose several paths, one of them leads throughout the Alpine Flower Garden at 1,880 m a.s.l. slightly beneath the peak. The garden can also be reached by the Hornbahn Cable Car. Ernst Walter Reisch, former owner of this area, made an area of 20,000 sqm available for this garden and its 400 plant species.

Then, Eva and Toni Hofer travelled in different areas of the world in order to collect plants and seeds, and to plant them in the Alpine Flower Garden. Moreover, the Hofer family created two artificial lakes, and cares for the garden together with Prof. Dr. Herbert Reisigl of the Botanic Institute of Innsbruck. However, not only edelweiss and gentian - probably the most famous alpine flowers - show up, but also exotic flowers such as the Tibetan carnation, the Himalayan edelweiss or plants from the Pyrenees, the Andes Mountains and the Caucasus Mountains.

The Alpine Flower Garden is equipped with information boards, and local guides give you a daily insight into the world of flowers. The botanical garden is freely accessible and offers a great view. Interesting: Local plants grow wild on the slopes, while plants from other countries have been planted in stone beds, as otherwise they would be crowded out by local plants.
