The Kitzbühel Lifestyle

Arrival to Kitzbühel

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.

Carefree vacationing in Kitzbühel | Tyrol | Austria

The Kitzbühel leisure region is located in the Kitzbühel Alps, at the foot of the legendary Hahnenkamm mountain and the Kitzbüheler Horn. This traditional destination is made up of four communities:  

:: the municipality of Kitzbühel, with its 750-year-old town center
:: Aurach, a picturesque village in the southern area of Kitzbühel, with its traditional ancestral farms and the Aurach Game Park
:: Jochberg, known for its mine, waterfalls, and Grander water
:: Riding near Kitzbühel past numerous ponds, ancestral farms, and the Kitzbühel Schwarzsee-Reith golf course

Kitzbühel is easy to reach. With three train stations and the Salzburg airport, Innsbruck airport, and Munich airport all close by, Kitzbühel is the ideal starting point for numerous excursions.

The region is framed by the grassy Südberge mountain, which is popular for its untouched nature and easy panoramic hikes. The extraordinary thing about hiking in Kitzbühel is the view: the Wilder Kaiser, the Hohe Tauern, and the highest mountain in Austria, the Großglockner, accompany hikers in Kitzbühel at every turn.

As a founding member of Best of the Alps over 25 years ago, Kitzbühel is one of the most traditional destinations in the Alpine region and stands for excellent quality, international guests, and upscale gastronomy.

Kitzbühel has the highest density of year-round premium hotels in Austria. The Kitzbühel conference hotels are particularly sought after and provide the optimum environment for all kinds of events. The region also offers high-quality inns, apartments, and two hostels.

Kitzbühel is particularly well known for its events, which culminate in the annual Hahnenkamm Races in January. The Generali Open tennis tournament, the music festival with Andreas Gabalier, the Alpine Rally, and Classical Music in the Alps with Elina Garanca are annual highlights of the Kitzbühel summer season.
