St. Johann in Tirol (670 meters above sea level) is situated in the middle of the Leukental valley that stretches all the way from Jochberg to the Bavarian border. With its 8,300 inhabitants, St. Johann is the commercial centre as well as the tourism centre of the region, boasting 4,500 guest beds of all differing categories.

The region experienced strong economic growth from the middle of the 16th century onwards thanks to the opening of the copper and silver mines in Oberndorf region, which in those days belonged to St. Johann in Tirol.

In the summer, St. Johann in Tirol primarily scores points with its excellent infrastructure which further upgrades and supports this top regional location for cyclists, mountain bikers and walkers. The ‘Panorama Badewelt’ attracts visitors with a particularly pleasant array of bathing facilities that include a large sauna and wellness area as well as indoor and outdoor tennis courts. The double toboggan run of the St. Johanner inclines provide fun and entertainment and is a popular meeting place for young and old. At their own expense, more adventurous visitors take part in ballooning, tandem paragliding and sports flying. The most beautiful towns and villages of the region are connected together by an extensive network of walking, cycling and mountain bike tracks that take in many attractive destinations.

In the winter, with 17 cable cars and ski lifts on the snowy side of the Kitzbueheler Horn, the St. Johanner inclines boast around 60 piste skiing kilometres that cater for all difficulty levels. With excellently maintained cross country skiing tracks (St. Johann in Tirol is the starting point and final destination of the largest cross country skiing race in Austria), winter walking tracks, a toboggan run, an ice skating rink and numerous other amenities, St. Johann in Tirol is a popular venue for winter sports enthusiasts as well as for lovers of nature.
