History

As early as 1165 it appears the first time the name "Chizbuhel" in a Chiemseer certificate, which is a merger with the proper name "Chizzo" and "Buhel" is a characterization of its geographical location.


In 1450 began the heyday of mining in Kitzbühel, but not until 16th Century silver was found in Kitzbühel. The citys landscape is a consequence of that wealth. Around 1850 the summer tourism started to build up in Kitzbühel and 1875 with the construction of the railroad brought the rise to international tourism. 1893 Franz Reisch became the first man to ski down from the Kitzbühel Horn, according to documents 1894/95 the first ski race was held in Kitzbühel.
