Maierl-Alm in the winter with car
phenomenal view

Arrival- and holiday informations

General reference for your journey:

The Maierl-Alm is located on 1225 meters above sea level right in the skiing area of Kitzbuehel and can be reached by car all year round. The street up to the Maierl-Alm, the „Krinbergweg“ and the „Krinberg“ is a asphalted mountain-road. In winter the street is cleared of snow daily. Anyhow winter tires are an absolute obligation between november and april! You urgently should also take snow chains that fit on your wheels with you. Sometimes they are necessary for coming up or going down the road. 

Alternatively you can leave your car at the parking area in the valley (Attention: officially parking there is not allowed over night) right at the turn to the cable car or in the underground parking in the village (address: Poellmuehle 2, Kirchberg in Tirol). The fee is about € 22,00 per week. Depending on availability, we could possibly organize a free shuttle and pick you up from there. Please contact our reception at 0043 5357 2109-0 in advance.

After leaving the motorway at Woergl Ost you continue on road B170 direction Brixental / Felbertauern. Follow the sign to Kirchberg (don´t take the direction to Kitzbuehel). Via Hopfgarten, Westendorf and Brixen you will get to Kirchberg (about 20km).

At the roundabout in Kirchberg please take the second exit direction Aschau. After about 1km there is a sign directing to the “Maierl-Gondel” (Maierl cable car). Please do not follow this sign! Stay on the main road instead! Precisely 1km after passing the sign that you are leaving Kirchberg you turn left, following the sign  „P1“. After 200 meters you reach the station of the cable car Pengelstein. Left hand of the station the mountain road starts. From this point on it is just 3,8km to the Maierl-Alm & Chalets. Just follow the signs “Maierl”. You can park your car outside or in our garage (hight 2,05 meters).

Ski rental:

If you need rental ski / boards or other equipment, you should already collect it on the way to the Maierl-Alm as you are passing by anyway. Our partner is Sport Rudi right in the center of Kirchberg (near the Disco „Der Tiroler“). At Sport Rudi our guests get a discount of 10%. If you pick up your equipment on the day of arrival after noon you will not get charged for that day. To avoid going down to the center again the next day we really recommend to get your equipment when you are passing by on the way to get to the Maierl. You can return your rental skiers and boards from Sport Rudi at the reception upon check out. (, Lendstraße 16, A-6365 Kirchberg in Tirol)
