KIRCHBERG IN TIROL - HOTELS & TOURIST INFORMATION
Kirchberg is a largely unplanned village, lively and crowded (with about five thousand inhabitants), with lots of young Germans, Scandinavians and Brits that are enjoying the nightlife. The village is quite attractive and the hospitality is excellent. In most cases, prices are lower here than some more mainstream resorts in Austria. Some consider Kirchberg a smaller version of Kitzbuhel. Both villages are lift-linked, but Kirchberg is a resort in its own right.
Kirchberg Skiing Holidays
The skiing favors intermediates, while beginners are somewhat isolated on the Gaisberg area, found on the other side of town. It can be a difficult resort to ski if you are in a mixed ability group. Advanced skiers don't have an awful lot of places to visit except for off-piste and the famous Hahnenkamm. Snowboarders have a specialist park and a half-pipe. The total piste length is about one hundred and sixty kilometers, allocated as follows: Beginner: 50% Intermediate: 42% Expert: 8%. Due to its lift-link to Kitzbuehel, there are sometimes queues and the bus to the lift often gets crowded, as well as car traffic in the village. If you want more skiing, you can always invest in the “Kitzbuheler Alpen” pass, for nearly seven hundred kilometers of unlinked pistes. This is particularly helpful when the snow is not so good. Accommodation and dining are mainly hotel-based, but there are some excellent mountain restaurants. Generally, Kirchberg in Tirol is a very good alternative to Kitzbuhel, offering interesting nightlife and great accommodation.
