Westendorf is a pretty village in the Kitzbuhel Alps with a lively and welcoming atmosphere. It has retained its own unique charm and traditions, yet you are close enough to major tourism in Kitzbuhel to still experience hustle and bustle. As part of the ‘Entente Florale Europe’ Westendorf was awarded the gold medal as Europe’s most beautiful village in bloom.
Adrenaline junkies will be at home with excellent paragliding conditions and mountain bike trails. Those wanting to experience the breath-taking mountain scenery at a slower pace can take advantage of the many available hikes. For a piece of everyday life visit the farmers market held once a week during the summer months.
