The town lies at an elevation of 856 m above sea level in the middle of Glemmtal Valley, through which flows the River Saalach. The valley's main town is our western neighbor, Saalbach-Hinterglemm. To the east, at the entrance to the valley, you will find the village of Maishofen.
The valley is flanked by the Kitzbühel Alps, better known here as the "Pinzgau Grass Mountains". The following mountains surround the village: to our SW, the Oberer Gernkogel (elev. 2,175 m) - highest point in Viehhofen to our SE, the Schmittenhöhe (1,965 m) to our NE, the Sausteige (1,912 m) - which is also the origin of the animal displayed on our coat-of-arms, the boar.
