Holidays Kaiserwinkl

Kaiserwinkl: Be active in Tirol!

Kaiserwinkl in the Lower Inn Valley is probably one of Tirol’s most charming holiday destinations and comprises the villages of Kössen, Walchsee, Schwendt and Rettenschöss. At any time of the year visitors may enjoy awe-inspiring views of the mountains of Tirol – and of Zahmer and Wilder Kaiser in particular. Thanks to its location and 200 kilometers of way-marked routes and trails the Kaiserwinkl area makes a paradise for walking and hiking enthusiasts. The charming Walchsee Lake boasts water temperatures of about 24 °C and lends itself to a refreshing soak on a hot summer’s day. Winter in Kaiserwinkl comes with a variety of snow sports, such as skiing in the Kössen ski area, as well as cross-country skiing and winter walking against the backdrop of the dramatic snow clad mountains.

Winter break: Skiing in Tirol

A winter break in the Kaiserwinkl area offers a fair share of recreation and relaxation, and winter sports options in abundance! With more than 140 kilometers of immaculate and well-maintained tracks winding their ways through picture-postcard mountain scenery Kaiserwinkl ranks among Austria’s top destinations when it comes to cross-country skiing.

Yet, Kaiserwinkl has a lot in store for skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts, too! The Hochkössen and Skizentrum Zahmer Kaiser (Walchsee) ski areas boast immaculate slopes, cozy mountain restaurants and several after-ski bars and pubs. Enjoy a day out skiing against a backdrop of spectacular mountain views. Off-piste activities in the Kaiserwinkl area include winter walking, romantic rides in horse-drawn sleighs, as well as tobogganing. We have something in store for virtually everyone!
