Winter hiking and walking is a wonderful way to explore Kitzbuehel and its surrounding villages. There are a variety of well maintained trails and paths to explore, lending a unique perspective and showing the area in a very different light.
Away from the slopes, Kitzbuehel has a peaceful side and hiking through the snow-covered landscape in Kitzbuehel, Aurach, Jochberg and Reith, is relaxing and invigorating.
The Kitzbuehel Tourism Office offers guided hikings and snowshoe tours with one of our guides for free. Hiking through the Kitzbuehel Alps in the company of an experienced walking guide enables you to learn a great deal about the country and its people. Your personal tour book is the perfect place to write down your thoughts and make notes about your tour. After you complete a third walk, you earn your first walking badge, known locally as a "Wandernadel".
