Brixen im Thale

Brixen im Thale is a popular holiday resort in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps.

Altitude: 794 m asl

Only 12 km from Kitzbühel, there is Brixen im Thale, a village located at the highest point of the beautiful Brixental valley. In the north of this holiday resort, there is the Hohe Salve mountain, which is above all famous due to its “wind harp” at the top. In the south, there are the Nachtsöllberg and Gaisberg mountains. Composed of several villages, Brixen im Thale is today considered to be the main village of the upper Brixental valley. Every year at Corpus Christi, there is still performed a procession on horseback.

Popular summer activities include hiking, cycling and swimming in the outdoor pool of Brixen im Thale. One of the main attractions of the village, however, remains Lake Filzalmsee at Hochbrixen. The recreational facility does not only include the lake, but also other attractions for adults and children, such as a padding basin and a water playground. This lake is also starting point for several hikes in the surroundings. Would you like to make a trip in the surroundings? In the neighbouring villages there are the whitches’ water theme and adventure park Hochsöll (Hexenwasser), located at the intermediate station of the Hohe Salve mountain, as well as the “Alpinolino” theme path at Westendorf.

Thanks to its central location, also in winter Brixen im Thale is a popular destination for those who love skiing, as there is the great SkiWorld Wilder Kaiser - Brixental. Some 284 km of well-groomed ski slopes are available, making your winter holidays really varied. The village itself boasts a variety of cross-country ski trails, connecting Brixen im Thale to the trail network of Westendorf and Kirchberg.

Our recommendation: especially worth to be visited are the cemetery chapel, first mentioned in 1734, and the late Baroque-classical district church. The church was mentioned for the first time in 788 AD and replaced by a new construction in 1789-1795.
