Walking, nature and traditions in Westendorf
Westendorf is a quaint little mountain village in Tirol where traditions are still preserved. The surroundings are made to measure for active summer holidays. Among the real natural gems ranks Windautal valley, a wonderful side valley of Brixental with mountain peaks reaching up to 2400 m above sea level and plenty of nature spectacles. Besides an infinite number of walking trails you can choose from scenic mountain bike and cycling tours for all skill levels in the surroundings of Westendorf. Additionally, the mountain lifts of Wilder Kaiser-Brixental ensure an almost effortless ascent. Close to the top station young explorers and nature fans will find six different Alpine adventure worlds revolving around Tirolean legends, witches, giants and other mystic figures. Experience the mountains with all senses!
Westendorf offers countless accommodations ranging from hotels and B&BS to guesthouses. A great place to get an insight into authentic Tirolean culture and tradition. One of the highlights you shouldn't miss is the traditional crafts market held every Thursday in the village center. A program for kids is scheduled as well. Both locals and guests are invited to join the folklore evenings, dance shows and traditional get-togethers.
