Overview - hotel description - Hotel Jakobwirt description

The Hotel Jakobwirt, run by the Ziepl sisters, is renowned for its friendly service and its traditional Tyrolean décor, helping bring to life a truly Austrian experience.

Centrally located in Westenforf, this hotel mirrors many of the qualities of the village – charm, tradition and a cosy atmosphere. From the hotel you can walk to the beginner slopes in just two minutes, or over to the Alpenrose gondola – which gives you access to the incredible SkiWelt area – in under five.

Natural materials and local craftsmanship were used in its design, helping complement the surrounding Kitzbühel Alps. The bedrooms are filled with custom furnishings made from high-quality materials and are equipped with all the usual hotel-room necessities to make your stay that little bit more comfortable.

If it’s the views you’ve come for, then the hotel’s sunny terrace, overlooking the picturesque Brixen Valley, will be right up your street. If wellness is more to your taste, then take advantage of the hotel’s wellness oasis. Freshen up with a dip in the indoor pool or a session to the sauna or infrared cabin.

There’s also a lot of focus on food at the Jakobwirt. The highly qualified chefs spend their days creating hearty and inventive 6-couse evening meals with both local and national influences. When it comes to wine, one of the Ziepl sisters, a certified sommelier, will be more than happy to give you a few recommendations.

Lovely old Westendorf is easily one of the prettiest Austrian ski resorts – but there’s more to this village than Alpine charm galore. It’s one of the nine resorts in the whopping SkiWelt area, and with Kitzbühel just along the valley there’s no shortage of excellent skiing.

Crowned most beautiful village in Europe in 1998 by the Entente Floral Association, sunny Westendorf has glorious views of the Windau valley and is fit to bursting with old school Austrian charm. A pastel yellow, onion domed church is surrounded by wooden chalets and trees, the wild and rugged Wilder Kaiser massif towering in the distance. Traffic jams, flashing lights and concrete tower blocks are worlds away. It doesn‘t take long to make the break from busy town life. A short transfer time (around an hour) ...
A great advantage of Westendorf’s position is the fact that slopes there are generally quieter than on the main SkiWelt circuit due to the majority of the skiing being on the other side of the valley between Brixen and Scheffau. Gentle nursery slopes are conveniently located near the village and there are some gentle blues like Piste 11, a long and scenic run through the trees. Intermediates are spoilt for choice with around 128km of red runs to conquer in the SkiWelt massif. Some highlights include the re...
The après is lively but compared with nearby Kitzbühel it’s more contained and family oriented. That being said there are some great places to have a drink and unwind after a day on the slopes. The après ski starts on the slope-side sun terraces when the lifts begin to close. Particular favourites are the Bruchstall and Gerry’s Inn based on nursery slopes 83 and 84. Later in the evening popular bars include the Village Pub and Kibo both of which have regular live music evenings. For a classy evening out wit...
