Kitzbühel, the Hiking Paradise

Shaped by the mountains, its zest for sport and the pursuit of the extraordinary – Kitzbühel is a

synonym for passion, one that gives rise to an unmistakable way of life. Some call it hiking, climbing, running or walking, we call it the Kitzbühel feeling – unique and unmistakable.

The magic of hiking

Kitzbühel has a proven track record as a true hiker’s paradise. Nestled between the Hahnenkamm and the Kitzbüheler Horn lies a veritable feast of hiking opportunities – with over 1,000 km of well signposted hiking trails. Whether in and around Kitzbühel, along the banks of the streams or traversing the native grass mountains, unforgettable views await. A network of trails are on offer for all levels of difficulty. Imagine exploring the alpine meadows at over 2,000 meters with the majestic mountain backdrop of the

craggy peaks of Wilder Kaiser – a truly memorable hiking experience.

Pleasure and leisure

A delicious Tirolean „Marend“ (snack) awaits the walker seeking refreshment and relaxation in the rustic mountain huts. The perfect spot to re-fuel, re-charge and relax, immersed in the region’s flawless natural beauty.

Wide range of routes and hikes

Thanks to the excellently signposted trails, discovering the Kitzbühel Alps on your own is perfectly straightforward. Planning a hike is very simple at http://touren.kitzbü – all the relevant details are to be found here, such as duration, altitude and level of difficulty. However, anyone who would still prefer to take a guided tour should consult the experienced hiking guides from Kitzbühel Tourismus: between mid-May and the end of October they offer free hikes to the beauty spots around Kitzbühel, every week from Monday to Friday.
