Ski holidays in Bad Kleinkirchheim

A picturesque ski and spa resort in the south of Austria

Situated in the Austrian Alps close to the Italian and Slovenian border, lies the picturesque ski & spa resort Bad Kleinkirchheim, where 25 ski lifts, 23 ski huts, 103km of perfectly groomed pistes plus extensive snow-making facilities guarantee unlimited skiing pleasure. BKK, as the locals call the town, is considered one of the 20 most popular resorts in Austria and owes its importance to two healing thermal spas. Probably the most popular local is Olympic champion and skiing legend, Franz Klammer, who has a downhill run named after him and Franz still hosts ski days on selected dates. You can also enjoy cleared walking paths, try ice-skating, tobogganing and snowshoeing or explore the resort by horse-drawn sleigh.

Our favourite run

'The Franz Klammer World Cup run - better still if you can ski it hosted by the great man himself on one of his regular and very popular guiding days (pre-bookable). This exciting and challenging run has a gradient of up to 80% and it ends in the midst of the village centre, at the Römerbad thermal spa.' (Anni Mothes, Product Manager Austria)
