Welcome to Kitzbühel

Kitzbühel

Among Austrian holiday resorts, Kitzbühel is the most commercial, glamorous and expensive. The beautiful alpine town of Kitzbühel, which dates back to the 9th century, has remained fairly unspoilt; in the winter holiday season you will hear the jingle of bells as a horse-drawn sleigh is pulled through Kitzbühel's cobbled, traffic-free town centre.

There is an extensive and varied skiing area offering excellent skiing and snowboarding, both on and off-piste, but be prepared for a lack of snow in places. Due to Kitzbühel's low altitude, the lower slopes are rarely open. If the skiing doesn't tire you out while on holiday in Kitzbühel, the nightlife certainly will. The atmosphere is bright, boisterous and fun and doesn't stop till the not-quite-so-early hours. Kitzbühel is also Austria's winter entertainment capital and attracts performers from all over the continent throughout the holiday season.
