All summer activities


Kitzbühel is a hidden mecca for tennis lovers with both indoor and outdoor courts dotted throughout the town. The thriving and welcoming tennis community means amateurs can often find themselves hitting along side professional athletes.

In addition to the tennis courts at the Sportpark, players can also enjoy facilities at Sport- und Wellnesshotel Bichlhof, Bruggerhof, Lifesport Hotel Hechenmoos and the courts of the Lisi Hotels.

In July, Kitzbühel welcomes the world's best tennis players when the ATP World Tour comes to town for the famous Generali Open.

Archery is an attractive pastime for many reasons: the outdoor natural environment, the escape from everyday life, the intensive level of focus required, and the feel-good factor of hitting the target dead center.

Tapping into a timeless connection between human skill and the natural world, modern archers use padded targets designed to take the impact of arrows traveling at speeds of over 240 km/h.

Visit the Alte Wacht in Jochberg for the chance to test your own skills in this modern-day classic activity.
