St. Johann in Tirol is a beautifully preserved medieval village filled with enchanting period buildings, frescoed houses and delightful little squares and is a beautiful starting point for many activities and fun filled days.

Nestling in a sunny valley between the Wilder Kaiser mountains and the Kitzbuhler Horn, the village centre has a tempting array of shops, a weekly market, bars, restaurants and cafes. With a busy programme of concerts, open air music shows and folklore festivals, there is always something to enjoy. Whilst the resort of St Johann in Tirol is very well known for winter sports it is equally as impressive in the summer when a unique alpine world opens up between the Kitzbuheler Horn and the Wilder Kaiser, an area which is perfect for active types. In the evenings, St Johann in Tirol is lively, with wine bars, beer kellers and taverns offering a singing and dancing.

The 30m high tower of the Huber Brau Brewery in St. Johann in Tirol is somewhat of a landmark. Here, high up above the town centre, you can taste the many different beers produced by this 300 year-old family-run business. The tower also provides a spectacular vantage point to admire the surrounding landscape and gently rolling hills of the Leukental Valley between the Kaisergebirge Mountains and the mighty Kitzbuheler Horn.

Set in the beautiful surroundings of the Kitzbuhel Alps, Horn Park is an aerial forest high ropes course which consists of platforms that are built in the trees and are connected by bridges and zip-lines. This makes for a fantastic pulse-racing day of fun and a great way to view the amazing scenery.

The Panorama Badewelt consists of an indoor area that has a large sports pool and an outdoor area which includes a sports pool, adventure pool and a spacious sunbathing lawn. With something for everyone; underwater massage jets and underwater massage recliners for those looking to relax, a giant water slide for those looking for a thrill and an adventure playground for the kids, you are sure to enjoy spending a day or two here. There is also a spa area which includes saunas, steam baths, massages and a crystal pool, to name just a few of the indulgent facilities.

Enjoy a visit to the weekly market in St. Johann in Tirol’s main square, every Friday throughout the summer. You can find fresh fruit, crunchy vegetables, savoury speciality cheeses and bacon, crispy bread, fragrant herbs and soap, real natural honey, fine antipasti, poultry, fresh fish and many other homemade delicacies from the Kitzbüheler Alpen and Tyrol.
