The market town of Hopfgarten im Brixental is one of the sunniest communities in the Kitzbühel Alps. With its narrow, cobbled streets, traditional village centre and magnificent baroque church, the village has a very special charm. Where the imposing Hohe Salve mountain towers above idyllic side valleys, quiet hiking and cycling trails lead into the varied Tyrolean mountains in summer. In winter, you can enjoy the quickest access to skiing fun in Hopfgarten.

The holiday resort of Hopfgarten in the Holiday Region Hohe Salve is located on the Brixentaler Ache between the towns of Westendorf, Itter, Wildschönau and Wörgl. With the associated villages of Kelchsau, the districts of Grafenweg and Penningberg as well as the many scattered settlements on the mountains, Hopfgarten is the largest municipality in the district of Kitzbühel. Thanks to its location in the valley basin of the front Brixental valley, it is hardly ever windy or foggy in Hopfgarten.

The history of the village is characterised by agriculture, which still plays a major role today. The name Hopfgarten can certainly be traced back to the cultivation of hops and the associated brewing of beer. In the 19th century, an important glass factory was operated in Hopfgarten. The imposing church ruins and the Hörbrunn inn are still reminders of this time. There are also many other well-preserved cultural assets in Hopfgarten, which can be discovered on a walk through the village.
