Nestled between the Kitzbüheler Horn and the infamous Hahnenkamm, this elegant, historic town with its colourful, medieval buildings and its pedestrianised centre is filled with stylish accommodation, boutique shops, wonderful bars and restaurants and friendly après ski.
Every January the Hahnenkamm men’s downhill race makes Kitzbühel an international name when racers accelerate from 0 to 80km/h in less than 3 seconds down the infamous Streif and over the Mausfaelle directly above the town, finishing with speeds of 120km/h. Every keen and good skier should tackle the world's most difficult downhill at least once in their lifetime - but probably a little slower!
52 lifts including the world’s only three cable lift connect you to 170km of prepared pistes and 32km of off-piste routes which is split over the smaller Kitzbüheler Horn and the larger Hahnenkamm area. The terrain will mainly appeal to beginners and intermediates but advanced skiers will enjoy testing themselves on the Streif and against the clock on the giant slalom on the Hornköpfl. Those seeking more kilometres should consider upgrading to the Kitzbühel Alps All Star Card meaning you can access ten ski areas and 1087km runs!
