Advent in Kitzbühel | Christmas Market

Nov 30, 2017 :: From 30 November to 26 December, the town centre will be transformed into a festive scene. During the holiday period, Kitzbühel can well and truly say, “Welcome to the most magical Christmas town in the Alps!”

The most legendary sports resort in the Alps, awarded the title “world’s best ski resort” for the fourth time in succession, is taking a break from mountains and slopes to show off its contemplative side.

The “Gamsstadt” (Chamois City) is a paradise for winter sports and summer fun. The Advent season in Kitzbühel is yet another magical experiences to be enjoyed here. Whether in Kitzbühel itself, at the foot of the legendary Hahnenkamm at the Hotel Rasmushof, or in the villages of Reith and Jochberg, visitors to the region during the pre-Christmas period will be treated to a variety of Tirolean delights. Featuring a colourful mix of tradition, local customs and international flair, it doesn’t get much more stylish or festive than this.
