Kitzbuhel Resort Guide

The centre of Kitzbuhel is largely traffic-free and has a variety of smart cafes, restaurants and designer boutiques, whilst the on-piste dining is set amongst the best in the world.

The town is perfect for non-skiers, as it sits at just 800m. However, with 170km of groomed pistes, served by over 50 lifts, there is a fantastic array of skiing for all abilities.

Kitzbühel is known as one of the most beautiful ski towns in Europe, with its delicate spires, stunning frescoes and buttressed walls.


Once a medieval silver-mining town, it still has a historic feel. Charming old coaching inns are now boutique hotels and, within the old walls, the pedestrianised centre is a web of ancient streets now boasting smart cafes and deliciously expensive designer boutiques.


All this is set against the startlingly beautiful Wilder Kaiser mountains, which lend a magical atmosphere to the whole town.


Kitzbühel is perhaps best known for the annual Hahnenkamm race in mid-January when the world’s best skiers descend on the town to compete on Der Streif, which at one point falls into a death-defying 85° drop. But there’s lots to keep those who aren’t adrenaline junkies busy, too.


There are plenty of intermediate and ‘family’ runs, as well as snowboarding fun parks, cross-country runs and winter hiking trails, too. Lots of people come just for the fabulous ‘ski safari’, a carefully planned trail of runs linked by chairlifts, gondolas and drag lifts that allow you to go a total of 91 miles without stepping out of your skis.


In the summer months, Kitzbühel attracts hikers, cyclists and golfers and the town also has a lovely programme of outdoor concerts and theatre.


When to Visit Kitzbuhel

The best time to visit Kitzbühel largely depends on your preferred activities and the experience you’re seeking. For skiing and snow-related adventures, the winter months from late December to early March offer prime conditions with ample snowfall and vibrant après-ski activities.


However, for those who prefer milder weather and outdoor pursuits like hiking, mountain biking, and golf, the spring, summer, and early autumn months, from May to September, provide pleasant temperatures and stunning alpine landscapes. Kitzbühel’s annual events, such as the Hahnenkamm ski races in January and the colourful Almabtrieb cattle drive in September, also add to the appeal of visiting during these times.

If you’re flying in, the nearest major international airport is Innsbruck Airport, (approximately 75 km / 1h 20m drive).


Munich Airport is another viable option but is further from Kitzbuhel so the transfer will be longer (approximately 160 km / 2h 20m drive).

Intermediates will be spoiled for choice with plenty of cruising blue and red runs throughout the piste map. Some of the quieter runs can be found across the Pass Thurn, including the Zweitausender – the area’s highest piste.
