Kirchberg Other Activities

Kirchberg is a well-rounded resort with something for everyone and offering a wide range of interesting winter sports and other activities for less sporty types. Though retail therapy in Kirchberg is limited mostly to sports shops, a few boutiques and souvenir shops, there is excellent shopping and more in nearby Kitzbühel.

Tobogganing in Kirchberg

The Gaisberg toboggan run is a must-do for all families and fun-seekers visiting Kirchberg. While the run, accessed by the Gaisberg chairlift, is open every day (09:00-16:00) it is also open Tuesday-Saturday evenings from 18:30-21:30 and makes a great night time activity for skiers and non-skiers alike. A single ride is included in the ‘Kitzbuhel area’ ski pass, but it is well worth the extra few euros for an evening pass. Toboggans can be hired at the bottom of the lift and tobogganing can be combined with a hearty dinner at either of the excellent mountain huts on the Gaisberg – the Gaisbergstuberl at the top of the lift, also accessible to non-skiers/tobogganers, or the Obergaisberg half way down the toboggan run.

Night skiing in Kirchberg

For those who can’t put their skis away, the Gaisberg chairlift is open Thursday and Friday evenings offering floodlight skiing – although limited to a single short red run.
