Kitzsteinhorn - The Glacier

The myth of the Kitzsteinhorn: more than just a glacier. THE glacier. Surrounded by the highest peaks in Austria, the mountain adventure opens up here from its most powerful side: snow fun in summer for the whole family at 3,000 metres, fantastic hikes in the high alpine nature, mountain bike freeride trails and the Gipfelwelt 3000 open all year round with spectacular panoramic views.
