The emblem of the municipality illustrates a golden pick on black background and a deep red shaft - this reminds on times when in Oberndorf in Tirol mining was still an important sector. Up to the 18th century at the Rerobichl hill copper was won, and still today stone processing is an important sector in the village. By the way, at the Müllnerhof farm in the village, there is the largest wooden fountain of the world, made of a 360-year old fir tree!
Oberndorf in Tirol is located in idyllic position in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps, and thus in summer mountains are at the centre of attention. Numerous hiking trails snake its way on the Kitzbüheler Horn mountain. Once reached your hiking destination, you are rewarded by a stunning 360° view on the Hahnenkamm mountain and on the Hohe Tauern, the Wilder Kaiser and the Karwendel mountain ranges. Solely the name of the mountain “Wilder Kaiser”, which literally can be translated as “Wild Emperor”, is impressive! And another emperor is at home in Oberndorf in Tirol: Franz Beckenbauer, who is also called “the emperor of soccer”, has been living in this village since 1982.
In winter, the northern side of the Kitzbüheler Horn mountain (1,996 m asl) attracts a large number of people who love skiing, as there are 42.5 km of well-groomed slopes in the St. Johann in Tirol skiing area. This skiing area is also a paradise for snowboarders and has been declared to be one of the greatest snowboard areas in Tyrol by the “Mystery Boarder”. In the valley, however, there are 20 km of cross-country ski tracks, that are connected to a regional network of over 250 km of cross-country ski tracks, as well as the 1.5 km long natural toboggan run Oberndorf, which stays illuminated till midnight, and horse-drawn carriage rides. Boredom, ehm, what’s that?!
Our recommendation: the lido Bichlachbad invites you in summer to swim and relax on a green including 35,000 sqm. This facility is also perfectly suitable for families, as it features a 55 m long water slide, water-spitting crocodiles, playgrounds for children and many more attractions.
