Kirchberg: cosy and diverse

A Tyrolean village with charm

The village of Kirchberg, with a population of 5,000, is often referred to as the little sister of world-famous Kitzbühel. In fact, the two towns are connected by the same ski area, but in contrast to chic Kitzbühel, Kirchberg is much more tranquil and cosy than its big sister town.

In terms of sport, Kirchberg is in no way inferior to Kitzbühel – on the contrary! Skiers and snowboarders can easily reach the famous Streif from Kirchberg with the Fleckalmbahn cable car and thus have a direct connection to the Kitzbühel ski area. But that’s not all: Kirchberg is also connected to the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental via the Ki-West cable car and therefore to the largest linked ski area in Austria. So variety is guaranteed when skiing in Kirchberg!

Kirchberg: Facts about the ski area

234 kilometres of slopes wait for you

You are guaranteed not to be bored on a skiing holiday in Kirchberg! Look forward to:

  • 234 kilometres of slopes (44% blue, 28% red, 28% black)
  • 57 modern lifts
  • 1,130 snow cannons for guaranteed snow
  • 60 cosy huts in the ski area

For you a skiing holiday in Kirchberg means: spending time on the slopes, not in queues. As the ultra modern lifts in the Kirchberg/Kitzbühel ski resort transport over 100,000 people up the mountain every hour. Incredible, isn’t it? The 10-person Fleckalm gondola in Kirchberg is very speedy. You float up the mountain at over 7 metres per second!

By the way: anyone looking for even more variety can use the Ki-West lift from Kirchberg to get to the middle of SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser Brixental, where there are another 288 kilometres of slopes and 90 more lifts available. For you a skiing holiday in Kirchberg therefore means fun on more than 520 kilometres of slopes.

Guaranteed snow from October to May

200 days of skiing fun in Kirchberg

The early bird catches the worm! In Kirchberg, you can start the ski season in October. Skiing this early is usually only possible in glacier ski areas. However, the favourable climatic location, combined with a clever trick, also make the early start of the ski season possible in the Kirchberg/Kitzbühel ski area. The decisive factor for this is snow farming at the end of the winter season. The snow is pushed together into a large pile and then covered with a special foil. As a result, the snow lasts through the summer and can be distributed on the slopes again in autumn. An early start to the season is therefore guaranteed in Kirchberg thanks to last year’s snow!

Sporty adventures off-piste in Kirchberg

Winter holidays in Kirchberg are packed with variety. Explore our enchanting mountains off-piste. For example with a ski tour up the Schwarzkogel (for advanced ski tourers) or with snowshoes around Aschau (moderately difficult).

Cross-country skiers are also in the right place in Kirchberg. You can really let off steam and take in the fresh air on the trails from Kirchberg to Kitzbühel or Westendorf. You can of course find everything you need for your sporty adventures off-piste at INTERSPORT Rent ski rental. Let us RENTertainers advise you and rent touring skis, cross-country skis or snowshoes.

We would also like to highly recommend a winter hike to Ruetzenhof. Situated on the sunny side of Kirchberg, the 270-year-old wooden mountain inn is a truly magical place. The view is stupendous and if there’s enough snow you can even toboggan back down to Kirchberg. 

Kirchberg for night owls

Night owls beware! Your day of skiing in Kirchberg is far from over after sunset. If you want, you can also enjoy night skiing and night tobogganing on the Gaisberg in the evening until 9.30 p.m. Kirchberg’s local mountain is illuminated by floodlights and the 4-seater chairlift also runs in the evening.

Our tip: Pick up your skis from the Kirchberg ski rental shop on the day of your arrival and use the evening for night skiing on the Gaisberg. Pick-up the day before is free of charge from 4.00 p.m. at INTERSPORT Rent. This way you can already carve your first turns with your rental skis on your day of arrival.

Around Kirchberg

Just 45 minutes by car from the German border town of Kiefersfelden, Kirchberg is also a popular destination for day skiers and weekend excursions. The favourable location also benefits you on a longer winter holiday in Kirchberg. Within an hour you can reach Innsbruck. The alpine-urban city is always worth a trip!

Innsbruck is also popular with anyone travelling to Kirchberg by plane. It is just a stone’s throw from Innsbruck Airport to skiing fun by train, bus, taxi or rental car. Especially if you are travelling light and rent your ski equipment at INTERSPORT Rent in Kirchberg.

The Kirchberg RENTertainers’ recommendations

Tips from genuine Tyroleans

With more than 60 ski huts and just as many restaurants in Kirchberg how do you choose the right one? Really easily! Us RENTertainers, passionate Kirchberg locals ourselves, reveal our insider tips:

If your stomach is rumbling on the slopes, all routes lead to the Gauxer Stadl. Situated on the Pengelstein run, the fun hosts welcome you as soon as you stop for a break. The kitchen is just as good as the atmosphere and indulges you with classic goulash soup, hearty Cordon Bleu or sweet Kaiserschmarrn. Or how about a tasty bacon sandwich for a quick snack? Always accompanied by the magical view from the mountain hut’s terrace over the surrounding mountains.

After a long day of skiing, an exquisite evening meal in the valley is of course also a must. Look forward to the varied menu and delicious steaks at the Pfeffermühle right in the heart of Kirchberg!
