Whether the sun is shining, it is raining or snowing we have the right programme for you. Melanie at Reception is also happy to help with some specific ideas too.
The history of Kirchberg in Tirol
In 902 the imperial ministry official Radolt gifted Prichsental with Sperten and Kirchberg to the Bishops of Regensburg, who left it to be managed by stewards. In 1241 Sperten was fist mentioned in documents as a village as Chirchberg. In 1333 mention was made of the ‘community and parish folk of Sperten’.
In 1377 Bishop Konrad of Regensburg pledged Brixental and Kirchberg to Bishop Friedrich of Chiemsee. In 1380 he sold it for 18,000 Hungarian guilder, retaining a right to repurchase and in 1385, for a further 8000 Hungarian gilder sold it to the Archbishop of Salzburg.
In 1816 Brixental and with it Kirchberg became a part of Tyrol.
