Kirchberg is a fairly sizeable village on the road between Kitzbühel and Westendorf. This small resort benefits from being linked into both the massive Ski Welt area (via the Ki-West gondola in the Sperten valley beyond Kirchberg) and into the large Kitzbühel interlinked area (by means either of a chairlift just to the south of the village centre or a gondola on the main road to Kitzbühel). It also has its own local area on the Gaisberg.
The main road between Kitzbühel and Westendorf has been moved out of the village centre and now goes into a tunnel to the north of the village before emerging near the Fleckalmbahn gondola.
The hotels in Kirchberg have benefited greatly from this traffic management project. Much of the accommodation is now located in quiet positions in the centre of the village or along the side valley on the road to Aschau and the Ki-West gondola.
The train station, for those not arriving by bus or car, is located on the northern side of the village centre not far from the bypass.
There is an extensive ski bus service to both of the ski area connections.
