Welcome to Kitzbühel, welcome to 365 days of the alpine lifestyle!
If you’ve only experienced Kitzbühel in the wintertime, you’ve yet to discover most of the charm of this alpine region. As a winter sports resort, Kitzbühel has a long history. Yet before skiers discovered Kitzbühel – sometimes called the Gamsstadt – guests flocked to the town from near and far for their summer holidays. The healthy mountain air, the clear water in the lakes and streams, and the placid grassy mountains have attracted many vacationers and hikers for over a hundred years.
Whether by train, car or plane: Kitzbühel is always easy to reach. The perfect location and accessibility, as well as the short distances in Kitzbühel distinguish the Gamsstadt. Thanks to three train stations, uncomplicated connections to the surrounding airports and a functioning network of public transportation, the way to the heart of the Alps is always a short one.
Especially: Kitzbühel itself is characterized by its walkability - the own car becomes superfluous in the Gamsstadt.
Gliding perfectly over slopes, freeriding on powder snow. Winter sports enthusiasts will encounter the best skiing conditions between the end of October and the beginning of May. In addition to the world-famous Streif, a total of 145 miles of downhill slopes will thrill any skier. The culinary array ranges from local delicacies to gourmet cuisine and can be enjoyed in the 60 huts and mountain restaurants in the ski area.
Families in particular will enjoy the free practice lifts in the valley – Rasmusleiten, Mocking, Ministreif (Kitzbühel), Hausleiten (Jochberg), Pass Thurn, Reith, and Aschau.
Take time for yourself and experience the endless opportunities for relaxation in Kitzbühel. Treat yourself to a rest and breathe deeply of the fresh mountain air to relieve stress. Soak up the view of the surrounding Kitzbühel mountains in the distance, far away from the houses and people, in silence and solitude. The landscape is a true source of energy – recharge your inner battery and revive your spirit.
Winter sports reign supreme in Kitzbühel: Cross-country skiing, winter hiking, snowshoeing, sledding, ice skating, curling, and the newest trend sports – Kitzbühel isn’t considered the most legendary sports town in the Alps for nothing. On over 40 miles of cross-country skiing trails, you’ll primarily find routes for cross-country addicts: easy to ski and without extreme gradients, but with breathtaking mountain scenery in the background. The trails are free to use for all Kitzbühel guests – not just the rich and famous!
The culinary scene in Kitzbühel is as varied as the numerous peaks that reach to the skies. Take a culinary voyage through the region to enjoy traditional local dishes and savor gourmet cuisine with an international flair. The lodges in the mountains and traditional inns in the valley serve homegrown cuisine made from regional ingredients, while award-winning restaurants will dazzle connoisseurs with exquisite dishes.
Kitzbühel’s winter wonderland can be hiked in carefree comfort on around 35 trails stretching across 105 miles. There’s lots to see at every turn – and almost nothing to hear. Apart, of course, from the crunch of snow and the gasps of amazement. The easiest way to experience Kitzbühel's gorgeous winter landscape up close? Simply walk right through it. Winter hiking is the most uncomplicated way to leave stress and tension behind. And it doesn't require anything – apart from good shoes, warm clothing, and one of our marked trails at up to 6,500 feet above sea level.
Kitzbühel pairs urban flair with characteristic Tyrolean hospitality, offering culinary diversity and an exclusive shopping experience. It’s the perfect combination of sports and lifestyle. The center of Kitzbühel, renowned for its charming alpine shopping ambience, leaves nothing out of reach. International brands and Kitzbühel fashion originals – like Sportalm, Frauenschuh, Franz Prader, and Helmut Eder – stud the display windows.
Immerse yourself in the silent stillness of Kitzbühel’s winter landscape and let yourself be enchanted by the beauty of the surrounding mountains. Away from the popular ski slopes, you can reconnect with the feeling of being alive. From the leisurely tour to the challenging route, from the groomed slope to the freeride experience, there’s something for every skier. No matter which you choose, you’ll always be rewarded with an impressive view of the stunning mountain scenery around Kitzbühel.
High-altitude air relaxes and gives strength. So what could be more obvious than to combine the advantages of the mountain location with beneficial wellness treatments? Take: untouched nature, mix it with an overwhelming mountain panorama, a pinch of fresh mountain air and add a dash of innovative hotel business. And your happy cocktail to recharge your batteries is ready.
Alpine lifestyle and idyllic nature, rustic tradition and modern lifestyle. Hardly any other town combines these contrasts as charmingly as Kitzbühel.
