Reith by Kitzbuehel
A stone's throw away from Kitzbuehel
800 bis 2.000 m above sea level
Reith by Kitzbuehel’s motto is:-“if it is to be a tailor-made holiday and all requests must be fulfilled”
The name Reith comes from "ruote" (old cleared woodland) and was first mentioned in 1190 when it belonged to the Monastery of Berchtesgaden. In Rerobichl and Astberg from the 15th until the 18th Century, silver and copper was mined. The first church, that is still standing, was built at the present church site and was consecrated in the 1188. In the 15th Century, it was enlarged into the Gothic style and re-built in 1729 as a new Baroque style church.
