7 tips for the Hahnenkamm Races

Everything you need to know as a spectator at the foot of the Streif

The Hahnenkamm Race Week is just around the corner: from 20 to 26 January 2020, everything in Kitzbühel will revolve around the Alpine Ski World Cup. The Hahnenkamm Races will be the 80th time this year that the world’s best professional ski racers will compete in the disciplines Super-G, slalom and downhill on the legendary Streif and Ganslernhang. Where can I get tickets, how can I get there best and what else is good to know? We have compiled the most helpful tips for your visit to the Hahnenkamm Races.

1.) Where can I get tickets and how much are they?

For all those who couldn’t find what they were looking for online, here’s the good news first: The tickets for the general spectator area are not limited and can also be purchased directly at the entrances on race days. Online sales by the K.S.C. (organizer of the Hahnenkamm Races) are no longer possible.

ATTENTION: : There are some dubious providers on the Internet who offer tickets at greatly increased prices – these are not partners of the Kitzbühel Ski Club, so better keep your hands off them.

Tickets for the Hahnenkamm Races cost between 20 and 30 euros per person – children born in or after 2003 have free entry (don’t forget the ID), groups of 10 or more pay between 17 and 27 euros. If you would like to purchase a limited grandstand or zone ticket, you can only do so after sending a written request to  info@hahnenkamm.com.

3.) Interesting facts about the journey: The best way to the Hahnenkamm Race

For those who come to Kitzbühel by car for the Hahnenkamm Races, there is a large free car park in Oberndorf (from Salzburg/Munich) and Kirchberg (from Innsbruck). From there, the free “Hahnenkamm Shuttle” of the ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways) takes you every 15 minutes directly to the Hahnenkamm stop, where the event area is only a two-minute walk away. Alternatively, there is the car park “Kitzbühel Süd” – from there it is a 20-minute walk to the spectator area.

 

Our recommendation: Take the train to the Hahnenkamm race

With the train journey to Kitzbühel everything is on rail – no searching for a parking space, no traffic jams. So the anticipation of the Hahnenkamm Race grows even more. And the best thing is: The train stops right at the Hahnenkamm station and from there it is only a “stone’s throw” to the finish area. >> It’s best to find the best train connection right away <<

4.) Planning is half the battle: This is how you as a spectator are optimally equipped

At a major sporting event such as the Hahnenkamm Race, there are a few Dos and Dont’s to be considered as spectators. We have compiled a few important points for you. Please also pay attention to the General Conditions of Admission

Clothing, equipment & tips

You spend a whole day in the snow as a spectator at the Hahnenkamm race. That can get colder than you think. So you’d better dress warmly and especially bring a cap and warm gloves. Most important of all, however, is a good pair of warm shoes with thick, non-slip soles. If you have shoe chains, you should definitely pack them, because depending on the course it can get slippery – especially if you plan to go up at the edge of the track. The entire event area is on snow-covered ground and is not slip-proof.

… and take hand warmers with me. A small heat source for in between is a fine thing. You can take a small rucksack or a bag to the Hahnenkamm race – at the entrance, anything you bring with you will be searched for security reasons. Attention: Dangerous objects as well as food and drinks of all kinds may not be taken into the event area.

On the extensive spectator area you can quickly lose sight of yourself. A full mobile phone battery is now worth its weight in gold, especially since the battery power decreases faster in the cold than one would expect. In the event that the battery does wear out and you lose sight of your companion, it is advisable to arrange a specific meeting point in advance (e.g. at the Lost & Found counter / in front of the sponsors’ tent etc.).

 

Hashtag tip: Of course you want to post your photos from the Hahnenkamm Race as soon as possible. Here are the matching hashtags: #kitzbühel #hahnenkamm #streif #ksc

5.) The best place to be for visitors of the Hahnenkamm Race

In the extensive event ground in the finish area, spectators are offered a lot: From the Hausbergkante the last 35 seconds of the ski racers can be followed live. In addition, seven huge video walls and scoreboards will transmit the latest information. In addition, there is of course the live moderation and entertainment with music, which invites to dance and celebrate.

Those who want to follow the ski race as pedestrians at the start or at the notorious mousetrap need a ticket as also a single ticket for pedestrians of the mountain railway and of course some good shoes.

For those who like to strap on the boards themselves, there is also the possibility to watch as a skier along the race track. Popular places are the Mausefalleboden, the Seidlalm and the Oberhausberg. However, it is essential to follow the signs and barriers here. In addition to the entry ticket for the race, a ski ticket from KitzSki is also required.

Before and after the race, live music and a DJ will provide a great atmosphere. The many stands offer a wide variety of culinary delights.

 

6) Food, Drinks & many more

Something lost or found? Then let’s go to the “Lost & Found” container, which is located near the VIP tent and is looked after from 9 to 21 o’clock. Directly next to it is the Red Cross, which is on hand to help with medical questions.

 

Souvenir? Yes, gladly! But where?

A souvenir from the chamois town is a MUST for many visitors. You can find various souvenirs with the chamois in the KitzShop (Hinterstadt 18). The Hahnenkamm Fan Collection is available in the Fan Shop opposite the Hahnenkamm cable car (at the ticket office).

7.) Patries after the race: locations to celebrate

During the entire Hahnenkamm race weekend, countless parties will be held in and around Kitzbühel. The well known parties with lots of glitter & glamour are mostly for invited guests. To get a ticket for a celebrity event at short notice is almost impossible. And you don’t need to, because parties are going on everywhere: music groups and DJs will create a great atmosphere in the finish area and in the fan zone in the centre of Kitzbühel. The many pubs and bars in the chamois city are also the perfect place for party-goers.

 

The absolute highlight of the ski spectacle is the award ceremony for the downhill race on Saturday, 25 January at 18:30 in the finish area. Afterwards, the big fireworks will provide an emotional conclusion to a spectacular day.
