Thierbach at 1150 metres above sea level is the smallest and most idyllic of the Wildschönau’s villages and is also the highest village in the whole of the Kitzbühel Alps.
A little bit hidden away, the charming village of Thierbach with it’s 160 inhabitants consists of just a church, a few beautiful old farmhouses, a couple of hotels and of course the school with it’s total of 9 pupils. Here, practically in the middle of nowhere peace and tranquility reigns.
The village couldn’t be more idyllic. Gingerbread houses covered in snow, the church with it’s onion dome and endless peace and quiet.
Take a romantic sleigh ride through the village or a walk around the lovely Thierbach Kogel. There are no ski lifts in Thierbach. Skiers staying here can take the ski bus to Auffach free with the WildschönauCard and for practiced skiers and in good weather take the ski route from the Schatzberg back to the village. The route doubles up as a tobogganing track and it’s great fun to sledge down and drop into one of the cosy Thierbach hotels for a warming drink afterwards.
The imposing Gratlspitz mountain is the backdrop to the lovely village. It is Thierbach’s landmark and perfect for fantastic hiking tours. The walk to the top starts in Hinterthierbach and the reward for the long climb is the breathtaking view of the whole valley.
Thierbach also has mountain bike routes and walking paths to the Schatzberg. E-bike riders often choose Thierbach for a rewarding trip.
The life of a miner in the 18th century is depicted in the little Lehenlahn silver mine outside the village. On the Kogel route around the village, families find wooden features, an insect hotel and open air theater as well as a super forest playground.
