Horngipfel breakfast

Sunrise for bon vivants on the Kitzbüheler Horn

Bergbahn AG Kitzbühel is once again taking its slogan - the first on the mountain - quite literally, and is bringing all early risers up to the Kitzbüheler Horn before sunrise - for a contemplative morning service, a hearty Tirol Milch mountain breakfast and a romantic hike through the Alpine flower garden. And all that even before the Hahnenkamm crows: from 4.00 a.m. in the morning!

Special trips into the realm of wonderful nature and sounds
When the sun rises at precisely 5.20 a.m. above the Loferer Steinberge mountain range you already have your ascent comfortably behind you. Kitzbühel's Hornbahn cable cars (B1 Hornbahn I, B2 Hornbahn II and B3 Horngipfelbahn) are ready for the off early on, with special journeys from 4.30 a.m. (staggered times); this means you can observe the sunrise up close - the first section you are carried, then your lungs get a work-out, your spirits are invigorated, the panoramic sky is exultant, and all this accompanied by the sensual sounds of the local traditional wood-wind melodies.

The Horn and the little Horn have never been so enticing
Those who have enjoyed an atmospheric start to their day will have earned a brilliant breakfast: Tirol Milch and the team from Horngipfel Haus serve guests regional delights, with a breathtaking view down into Kitzbühel, which is still sleeping ... a hearty breakfast with thousands of impressions. After this Bergbahn AG Kitzbühel invites all early summiteers to head out on a guided hike on a long or a short circuit of the Horn - with a unique feast for your eyes all the way: Kitzbühel's Alpine flower garden.
