Going am Wilden Kaiser

The bathing lake of Going was voted “the most beautiful natural lake for bathing of Tyrol” by an international jury

Altitude: 795 m a.s.l.

Going am Wilden Kaiser is confined by the Kitzbühel Alps in the south and the Wilder Kaiser mountain chain in the north. The five component localities Schwendt, Aschau, Prama, Sonnseite and Schattseite form the municial territory, which is towered by the bulbous spire of the church, a masterpiece of rococo in Tyrol. All along, Going am Wilden Kaiser was agrarian-oriented, and in the 16th and 17th century mining at the Rörerbichl hill represented a further field of activity.

The village is surrounded by natural highlights. Lake Going, located in idyllic position on the edge of the forest, is fed by the natural spring of the Wilder Kaiser. In summer, the water reaches a pleasant temperature of 24 degrees C - besides of a white sand beach with a separate bay for non-swimmers and kids, also a giant slide and a playground with pirate ship await you here.

Further natural highlights are Lake Hintersteiner, the World of Moors in the Wilder Kaiser Nature Reserve, and the Schleier Waterfall, which is a mekka for extreme climbers. And thanks to the "Stanglwirt" tavern, which celebrated its 400th anniversary some years ago, Going am Wilden Kaiser is above all known in the VIP scene. In winter, however, the SkiWorld Wilder Kaiser - Brixental opens its doors and invites you to a rest in one of the 70 cosy ski huts.
