A dream of many years will now become reality.

On 1 October 2021, our new Bründl Sports Flagship Store will open in the heart of Kaprun. On roughly 2500 m², your sporting experience, your adventure, your vacation, your timeout will begin. Let yourself be inspired!

Our Flagshipstore

2500 m² represents double the previous sales area, where you will find everything you need for your sporting experiences on the mountains and in nature.

Welcome to the biggest ski and boot department in the Alps

Experience sustainability

Not only can you see the sustainability of our new Flagship Store with your eyes, you can also sense and breathe it. Our Flagship Store is actually the first sporting goods retailer in Austria to receive both ÖGNI (interior fixtures) and Klimaaktiv (structural engineering) certification. Our goal is to achieve the highest seals of quality, “platinum” and “crystal”.

An oasis of culinary enjoyment and relaxation on the rooftop of our Flagship Store. Here, you can allow your eyes to roam all the way out to the majestic Kitzsteinhorn in the far distance, simultaneously experiencing a 100 % sustainable gastronomic concept featuring an array of organic, seasonal and regional products. A “green” concept through and through with the smallest possible ecological footprint. Traditional, local dishes given a modern, healthy interpretation.

Our new Flagship Store will now feature three Pop-Up Spaces. These will be completely redesigned every 4 to 6 weeks and used by top brands and partners to present special collections, highlights or innovations.

Running Analysis
15 meters from the perfect shoe!

Our new running analysis involves projecting a 15 m long track on the floor. In this way, we will be able to conduct a far better analysis thanks to a much more authentic running style. Using state-of-the-art Dartfish video analysis technology, we will be able to pinpoint the type of runner you are, your foot positioning and more in precise detail.

Before you actually go ahead and buy your new hiking or running shoes, you can give them a thorough “test drive” on our outdoor Shoe Test Path, where you will walk across different types of surface. In this way, you will be able to avoid pressure points, rubbing or having too little traction.
