There is a lot to offer in the neighboring villages of Reith, Aurach or Jochberg - the Aurach wildlife park and a visit to the traditional farm shops are only a stone's throw away from Kitzbühel.

But there is also a lot to discover in the surrounding regions, be it a visit to a schnapps distillery or a city trip, e.g. to the fortress town of Kufstein or to our state capital Innsbruck. There is all sorts of things to find for each of our guests.

A visit to the Aurach Wildlife Park

The Aurach Wildlife Park is a truly beautiful piece of nature above the small village of Aurach. Lovingly tended for several generations by the Pletzer family, the largest wild animal outdoor enclosure in Tyrol impresses with over 350 animals. From red deer to yaks and kangaroos - a wide range of animal species have found a home here. New fluffy friends can be found in the petting stall. Delicious delicacies and a good cup of coffee in the Brandnerhofstube round off the excursion. 

The game park is open to visitors in summer as well as in winter, the entrance fee is EUR 9.50 for adults and EUR 6.00 for children. If you do not have your own car, you can use the game park transfer from the Hahnenkamm parking lot.

Find your oasis

In the midst of the Tyrolean mountains, Kitzbühel offers you numerous places of rest and relaxation. Sit back and treat yourself to a day of unforgettable downtime with feel-good saunas, panoramic swimming pools, steam baths and massages. In our exclusive wellness hotels - many with day spa option - you will find all the ingredients for your very own Me Time.

Early morning sport at the Schwarzsee

Early morning exercise helps to get the circulation going and wakes up the body. Those who complete their morning training session at Schwarzsee automatically get the good mood along with it. When the first rays of sunlight emerge from behind the Kitzbüheler Horn, the nature reserve is still wonderfully quiet. Due to the fresh temperatures, the morning fog still wafts over the warmest moor lake in the Alps in the morning and immerses the scenery in a mystical atmosphere. 

A dreamlike circular path of about two and a half kilometers leads once around the lake and is suitable for a morning walk as well as for a sporty jogging round. For those who want to move a bit more, there is a beautiful forestry trail on the eastern shore. A dip in the cool water rounds off the perfect morning routine. 

Wonderful wanderable

Our guests have it good: With the guest card from Kitzbühel Tourism, everyone can take part in our guided hikes free of charge from Monday to Friday.

Dive in the forest

Simply close your eyes, explore the surroundings with an alert mind and immerse yourself in the forest with all your senses. Forest bathing is considered a natural healing method in Japan and is the ideal way to recharge one's energy reserves. Almost half of Kitzbühel is covered with forests - from spruces to pines and firs, there are numerous native trees in the immediate vicinity. The magical atmosphere, the strong power of the old trees, the gentle breeze through the branches and the subdued light invigorate and decelerate the mind at the same time. 

A long walk through Kitzbühel's forests works wonders against stress. Let the balanced tranquility and sincere unagitatedness of nature take hold of you, and indulge in the luxury of being out of reach while bathing. A vacation experience cannot be more relaxing.

An animal adventure

There is more than one good reason to take a hike with alpacas - not the least of which is exercising all 135 of your laughing muscles! From May to October you can create an unforgettable experience out of the time spent together with friends, family and partner. The fuzzy ones, as the alpacas are also called, stand in stark contrast to the credo "Higher, Faster, Further", because without patience, calmness and trust you will not reach your goal here. 

The alpaca walk at the Kitzbüheler Horn costs EUR 40.00 for two or more people, each additional person EUR 15.00 and children up to 14 years pay EUR 8.00

History & culture in Kitzbühel

Although the town has become known worldwide as a lifestyle hotspot and as the venue for the spectacular Hahnenkamm race, ultimately this is only a comparatively short period in the town's 750-year history. Kitzbühel was and is a lively, diverse, exciting, ever-changing place - and some of these facets can be admired in the Kitzbühel Museum. A very special insider tip is the museum's roof terrace: from up there you have a fantastic view over the roofs of the town. The newly opened KC750 Kultur Café Kitzbühel is not only an excellent place to go for drinks & snacks after a visit to the museum - small concerts, readings and poetry slams also take place here.
