Kitzbühel in short

  • Attractive medieval village centre
  • Home base of the famous Hahnenkammrennen
  • Suitable slopes for all levels
  • Vast hiking area

Kitzbühel is a winter sports giant and everything you would expect from a ski resort in Austria. Skiers of all levels will find what they're looking for in the ski area of Kitzbühel & Kirchberg and the more adventurous can even attempt the famous Streif downhill where the Hahnenkamm Men’s Downhill Race has often been held. Snowboarders are spoilt with their own mountain in Kitzbüheler Horn so no-one will be disappointed here. Kitzbühel is easy to reach from the airports of Innsbruck and Salzburg.

Each year the fashionable, yet atmospheric ski resort of Kitzbühel welcomes many skiers who come here to enjoy the luxurious mountain lifestyle and the versatile Austrian ski area. Back in the village the après-ski offer is trendy and cosmopolitan - just like the clientele! For après-ski, try The Londoner if you like live music - there's a different band every night. Dating back to the 14th century, Kitzbühel’s painted medievel houses, stylish shops, concealed passageways and charming cafés are wonderful to explore if you fancy a break from the slopes or a late afternoon stroll.

Believe it or not, summer is a busy time for many ski resorts. Even when the Alps aren't covered in snow, there is plenty to do: lifts, piste bashers, and snow cannons must all be inspected and fixed where necessary, and preparations must be made for the upcoming ski season. Some ski resorts take advantage of the ski pistes being closed to instal new lifts! Here you'll find a quick overview of the major new lifts that will be inaugurated for the 2019/20 ski season....
