  • Overview

    Silver and copper were the 16th century routes to wealth for Kitzbuhel and its enviable reputation for prosperity still persists today amidst the designer shops and elegant cafés which adorn the medieval cobbled streets, occupying the vibrantly coloured buildings that make up Glitzy Kitz.

    Dating back to medieval Bavaria, Kitzbuhel is one of Austria’s most famous towns in the Tyrol and is a ski resort of international renown. Its frescoed buildings huddle around the Church of St Catherine which casts a long, high Gothic shadow over proceedings; and of those, there are many.

    From the buzz generated by pavement cafés filled with shoppers happy to spend in the numerous designer boutiques, to the many concerts, local festivals and open-air events that the village-yet-affluent-feel of the place encourages. It was in 1893, with the christening of the first alpine ski run in Austria, that Kitzbuhel’s reputation as the most legendary sports town in the Austrian Alps was born. And nowadays, after the winter snows begin to melt, the summer sporting begins. Set in a broad valley basin between the Kitzbuhel Alps and the Kaiser mountains to the north, this is a fantastic area for walking and cycling especially because of its scenic and relatively flat valley paths. On the outskirts, Lake Schwarzsee additionally offers great opportunities for swimming, sunbathing and watersports.

    Summer Activities

    The star of summer sporting events is hiking, and Kitzbuhel boasts 1,000km of hiking trails for all ability of walker. There are flat valley paths and it’s easy to explore the wide alpine pastures; home to colourful flower meadows and picture-postcard grazing cows and it’s worth visiting the local Tourist Office to find out

    details of their five times a week complimentary guided hiking (available mid-May until late October).

    Cuisine

    Kitzbuhel features a number of award-winning restaurants alongside contemporary cafés and family run mountain huts serving hearty and typically Tyrolean goulash and schnitzel. The town boasts its own brewery which also serves food to accompany the Huberbrau Stuberl beers and lagers. When hiking or walking in the mountains, chalet restaurants provide fresh and seasonal local produce to savour.

    Kitzbuheler Card

    The centre of Kitzbuhel is predominantly traffic-free, which makes wandering the medieval streets all the more pleasant. A very efficient local bus service is complemented by rail services from two train stations. Lifts including the Kitzbuheler Horn and Hahnenkamm cable cars, accessible from the centre of town, are

    open throughout the summer to enable enjoyment of the wonderful views. Purchase a

    Kitzbuheler Alpen Summer Card for free travel where you want, when you want.
