An absolute highlight is an overnight stay in an alpine lodge. The Vorderkaiserfeldenhütte offers a delicious 5-course menu with live music and campfire. In case of good weather the view from the Zahmer Kaiser Mountains into the Inn valley is terrific! You shouldn't miss something like that. For those staying overnight, a rich breakfast buffet the following morning provides the necessary energy needed for the day.

5. New Year's Eve for Mountain Enthusiasts


If you like being in the mountain all year round, you can celebrate the turn of the year on the top of our numerous panoramic mountains. Depending on the weather, you have a particularly good view from various peaks in our region.

Kranzhorn: With a view towards Bavaria and Tyrol you are spoiled for choice. But there are no places for meals or refreshments nearby.
Spitzstein: Just like the Kranzhorn, you have a great view towards Germany and Austria. For the time after midnight, you find rustic huts or alpine inns nearby as well as further down including the possibility for staying overnight.
Pendling: The local landmark mountain offers a magnificent view of Kufstein. Since this is not an insider tip, other visitors are expected. The Kufsteinerhaus lodge specially opens for this event and is already fully booked weeks in advance.
Weinbergerhaus: Is not situated on a peak but definitely a unique panoramic mountain. The local mountain of Kufstein is very popular all year round and certainly well attended on New Year's Eve.


6. In case of hangover on New Year’s Day

The snow festival in Hinterthiersee at the valley station of the Tirolina ski area has become an integral part of the New Year's Day. Accompanied by music, the ski club offers a spectacular ski show with torch ski run, fire jumping and fireworks. Even for “after party” visitors the show is a spectacle worth seeing that shouldn’t be missed.
