Welcome to Kimberley!
Kimberley is a little piece of Bavaria in the BC Rockies, even providing genuine gemütlichkeit (Bavarian-style friendly hospitality) to all visitors. Kimberley is located slightly northwest of Cranbrook, and is approximately a four-hour drive from Calgary. This popular year-round mountain destination offers something for everyone. In winter, head to the highly-rated Kimberley Alpine Resort for world-class skiing and other snow sports. During the summer, there are a number of golf courses in the area that are set against the majestic beauty of the Canadian Rockies. Visitors can also enjoy a ride on the narrow gauge Bavarian City Mining Railway and then quench their thirst with a stein of beer on the Kimberley Platzl, while listening to wandering minstrels and waiting for the giant cuckoo clock to chime on the hour. Visit the travel guides for the Okanagan, Southern Alberta and Fernie for information about visitor destinations near Kimberley.
The Platzl is the image usually conjured when one thinks of the town of Kimberley.
