Enjoying an exhilarating elevation of almost 1000m, the majestic mountain village is surrounded by natural splendour and lakeside lusciousness. Those seeking a serene solace from the demanding duress of daily life will find that Kirchberg is exactly the place they were pursuing; the village’s calming Alpine atmosphere and prime location between two enormous ski resorts mean travellers can enjoy the best of both worlds. Revellers will not be disappointed with the village’s exciting array of après-ski venues, all of which effervesce into the early hours.
Ranked amongst the world’s most exclusive winter sports destinations, the snow-smothered slopes of Kirchberg are one of Europe’s prime skiing places. State of the art ski lifts deliver adventurers to the splendid summits of majestic mountains and glittering glaciers, imploring them to soar over the steep drops and frozen crevices. Night skis allow sportsmen to observe the mountains from an entirely new perspective, as tracks are illuminated by luminous lights that guide the way through atmospheric courses.
Venture to warmer pastures with a visit to the nearby Obertreichl Herb Garden, a rich and colourful garden in which hundreds of herb bloom. Herbs are uniquely arranged in bounteous beds, and all feature intriguing information panels that detail the medicinal and culinary properties of the plants. The garden’s shop sells many herb products, all of which making splendid souvenirs for those at home.
Both visual expectations and heart après-ski appetites will be sated with the fine food of Kupferstub’n Restaurant. The rustic décor is juxtaposed with the modern and manicured food, all of which respects the rich regional heritage by using fresh produce from the bounteous surroundings.
