Image for Brixen im Thale which includes mountains and snow

One of the oldest of several picturesque alpine villages, this town has charms extending beyond its cozy atmosphere to the natural wonders beyond.

Stay in the heart of the action at Brixen im Thale, the ideal gateway to the winter wonderland of SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser Brixental. Brixen im Thale's geographic position means it gives access to the west through the Inn Valley and east through Kitzbühel. The 174 miles (280 kilometers) of ski slopes and high-tech lift facilities of SkiWelt serve every snowy adventure.

The principal settlement of the upper Brixental Valley, to which it gave its name, Brixen im Thale is one of the oldest villages in the region. People lived in these stunning landscapes in the Bronze Age. Two hundred years ago, elites such as Napoleon’s second wife Marie Louise visited Brixen to recuperate. Experience the fresh air and waters that make it a renowned health resort.

Explore the themed walking trails surrounding crystal clear Lake Filzalm. This jewel of Hochbrixen, the more elevated part of Brixen, offers an outdoor playground for the whole family and one of the major theme parks in SkiWelt. Children will love the playgrounds, large sandpit, oversized xylophone and amusing sculpture of a giant rising from the lake. Visit the biotope aquarium for a peek into what’s living under the water. On site is a traditional farmhouse now serving as a function center.

Ride on the Brixen cable car year-round between rocky Wilder Kaiser and the summit of Hohen Tauern to witness snowy winter or blooming summer. During winter on Hochbrixen you can also make a visit to the Alpeniglu Dorf, a village of 18 igloos. Purchase food and drinks and take a tour of this unique site. For a real treat, stay overnight and revel in the VIP experience, which includes a welcome drink, dinner, breakfast and activities.

Enjoy a relaxed walking tour through the picturesque town with its charming town square. Highlights include Dekanatspfarrkirche, the district church, with tall façade and two bell towers, and historic Cemetery Chapel.

Cross-country ski trails connect Brixen im Thale to neighboring settlements such as Westendorf and Kirchberg.
