Street artists

On December 31, 2024 and January 1, 2025, a colorful array of street performers will delight visitors in downtown Kitzbühel. Starting at 15:00 p.m., chimney sweepers parade through the Gamsstadt and spread a festive mood, while stilt walkers and artists amaze the guests. Let yourself be enchanted and get in the mood for the upcoming turn of the year together with us.

The Spielvolk unerringly hits the moment of fascination and captivates every visitor with its extraordinary program. When it gets dark, the stunning costumes of the street performers unfold their special charm and thus make your evening unforgettable. 

New Year's greeting of the Kitzbühel Stadtmusik

On 01 January 2025 at 3:00 p.m. the Kitzbühel Stadtmusik invites you to the New Year's greeting in the Vorderstadt. Let yourself be enchanted by this wonderful tradition.

Saxophone quartet Saxlamanda

The saxophone quartet Saxlamanda presents a New Year's program of a special kind: the four musicians, all classically trained, get their listeners in the mood for the coming year with a dynamic performance. The audience on the stage in Kitzbühel's Vorderstadt on January 1st, 2025 at 4:00 p.m. will experience atmospheric blue notes and revitalized classic hits. The four Tyroleans inspire with a fine balance between sound power and chamber music lightness.

Tyrol Music Project

The quartet Tyrol Music Project was founded in 2014 and has enjoyed great popularity ever since. With a love of experimentation, they combine folk songs from all countries with Tyrolean folk music and are not afraid to skillfully integrate film music from blockbusters or Netflix series. This is how their very own unmistakable sound is created. 

On 01 January 2025, they will be on stage at 5.00 p.m. in Kitzbühel's Hinterstadt and present their very special mix of different songs and genres. Let's sing and swing together to the sounds of the 20s - tangos from wicked Buenos Aires, romantic musette waltzes from Paris, schrammel music from Vienna and rhythmic folk dances from the Balkans, to finally return home to Tyrolean folk music.

New Year's Mass in the Parish Church

On Monday, January 1st, 2025 at 5.00 p.m. the New Year’s service will take place in the parish church of St. Andreas Kitzbühel. The annual festive mass - to bless the new year - is musically framed by the church choir and orchestra.
