There is no better place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life than in the mountains.

With so many beautiful alpine summits accessible straight from our front door, it is no wonder that the Sporthotel Reisch in Kitzbühel is a popular base for walkers and hikers in summer. From the rolling green hills of the Grasberge to the craggy peaks of the Wilder Kaiser, there really is something for everyone.

Throw in plenty of traditional wooden huts high in the mountains serving hearty local delicacies and you have the perfect day out.

You can enjoy the views of the mountains from the hotel, but the best panoramas are to be found during a walk or hike high in the Alps.

Let's go!

Hikes starting at the hotel

From your hotel room straight to the summit? Why not! There are many hiking trails leading from the centre of Kitzbühel up into the beautiful mountains. Highlights include six stages of the famous KAT Walk long-distance hiking trail, taking walkers from Hopfgarten to St. Ulrich am Pillersee.

During the summer months many of the lifts and cable cars stay open. The Hahnenkammbahn cable car is just a short walk from our hotel and a great way to access the high mountains quickly and easily.

Last but not least, there are plenty of traditional huts in the mountains serving food made using ingredients sourced from the local region.
