Going am Wilden Kaiser
Population: approx. 1900
Altitude: approx. 773m
Going is located at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser, and some claim that this is where the mountain range is at its most impressive. What is without doubt is that Going is situated amid one of Austria’s best hiking areas. The quiet little town boasts a beautiful church square, which is surrounded by flower-bedecked farmhouses and made famous by“The Mountain Medic”, a hugely popular medical drama TV series. The square is also home to many public events and concerts.
Going is part of the large Skiwelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental ski area featuring 90 ski lifts, 284 kilometers of impeccably groomed runs, and over 70 on-mountain restaurants. 225 kilometers of runs can be covered by artificial snow to ensure top skiing conditions throughout the winter season.
Sledding, Nordic skiing, winter hiking, snowshoeing, and backcountry ski mountaineering are among the many great activities to be found in Going. In the summer Going hosts a whole host of outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, road biking, rock climbing or simply relaxing in pristine nature. Fed by crystal-clear springs in the Wilder Kaiser range, Badesee Going is one of Tirol’s most beautiful natural lakes. The lake’s expansive sunbathing lawn overlooks the majestic Kaiser mountain range and is a wonderful place to cool down on a hot summer day.
Going is about a 10-minute drive from Kitzbühel. Innsbruck, Salzburg and Munich are all about an hour’s drive away.
