Tradition and modernity in the Kitzbühel Alps
We drive by car via Munich to Hopfgarten, quickly waved through at the border, the pandemic seems far away.
Our destination is the Hohe Salve sports resort. It is located in the Kitzbühel Alps.
The region has managed to maintain its originality and yet continue to develop.
Easy to reach, you will find the ideal atmosphere here between mountain and lake to relax.
With its fine cuisine and a wide range of culture and leisure activities, the Hohe Salve region offers numerous unforgettable impressions.
Between the mountain massif of the “Wilder und Zahmer Kaiser” you will find picturesque villages, quiet lakes, rushing mountain streams, green alpine pastures and snow-capped peaks.
Incidentally, this also applies in summer.
The perfect region for people who want to spend their holidays actively all year round.
Whether hiking, hiking, e-biking, tennis and golf, swimming in mountain lakes, everything is possible here, anytime, anywhere.
My E-bike was ready. Switching to sport mode uphill is fun and makes enjoyment a lot easier.
The next day, go to the KRAFTalm. We enjoy the view with Blaufränkisch and a cold beer. This new hotel, which spoils you with fine cuisine, is located very close to the Wilder Kaiser.
The hotel has been renovated and has now opened after the Corona Lockdown. Later I hike down through the forest into the valley. The hotel visit will be made up for in a timely manner.
The next day Monika Pirchmoser and Tamara Lerchner are waiting for us in the Zeitlos. They also surprise with fine regional cuisine and local knowledge.Tamara showed us how to make a Kaiserschmarrn.
Later there was deer Bolognese, for me for the first time. Fantastic. In addition Domain Wachau Wein, the perfect couple. For the sweet finale, a special, different Kaiserschmarrn with pre-foamed egg whites.
Wonderful. I spend the afternoon on the Hohe Salve. By gondola, it goes to 1829 m.
Sun and a view of the mountain landscape.
I am really happy and look forward to returning.
Mountain air, dumplings, strudel, flavors, wines, cheese and bacon are addicting.
Fine food and beautiful wines are simply a must here.
I love Tyrol – a magical place of silence and peace.
