Sporting excellence "Game, set and match," is the motto of the tradition-steeped Generali Open tennis tournament (July 29th - August 5th 2023). The first winter highlight of the year is the Snow Polo World Cup (January 12th - 15th 2023). Then it's time for the fifth season in Kitzbühel - the Hahnenkamm Races (January 16th - 22th 2023), where the world's best skiers compete for the golden chamois. Extreme athletes compete in the Vertical Up Challenge (February 25th 2023) and face the 85 percent gradient of the Streif.

Then it's time to say: "On your bikes, ready, set, go!". At the finale of the 3rd Kitzbühel Cycling Marathon, the focus will be on the Kitzbüheler Horn as the steepest cycling mountain in Austria. When the oltimers shine in front of the town of Kitzbühel again and the engines roar, then it's time for the well-known Alpineralley. In October it goes 350 meters steeply downhill the Streif.

Lived tradition When the year draws to a close and a well-known scent of hot chestnuts and fruit punch is in the air, winter has arrived in Kitzbühel. At the Kitzbühel Advent (November 23th - December 26th 2022), childhood memories are reawakened. More than 30 craft and culinary stands await you in the historic town center to celebrate the most contemplative time of the year together with you. With Easter (April 2nd - 10th 2023), nature awakens in spring and Kitzbühel also celebrates spring with the varied Easter program throughout the region.
