Brixen im Thale

Every year on the occasion of Corpus Christi, the village celebrates the old tradition of the “Antlassritt”, a procession on horseback

Altitude: 794 m a.s.l.

Only 12 km from Kitzbühel, there is Brixen im Thale, located at the highest point of the beautiful Brixental valley. In the north of the village rises Mt. Hohe Salve, in the south there are the Nachtsöllberg and Gaisberg peaks. Composed of several hamlets and component localities, Brixen im Thale is today considered to be the main village of the eponymous high valley.

High above the village there is the Hochbrixen hiking area with a popular destination, the Filzalmsee AdventureWorld. The recreational facility does not only include the lake, but also other attractions for adults and children, such as a Kneipp basin and a water playground. In the neighbouring villages, further theme trails and adventure parks await you on the mountains, including the Witch's Water Hochsöll and the Alpinolino Adventure Park in Westendorf.

In summer, the Brixental Kitzbühel Cycle Route leads past the village, in winter, however, Brixen im Thale benefits from its central position. The lift facilities to the mighty SkiWorld Wilder Kaiser-Brixental start right here. Featuring almost 300 km of slopes, it represents one of the largest skiing areas of Austria and worldwide. Furthermore, there are the Brixenbachalm toboggan run, the Westendorf - Brixen cross-country trail and the Brixen high-altitude track.
