The biggest name in world skiing, Kitz is epic on & off snow.
The absolute pinnacle of the winter sports calendar, the Kitzbühel Hahnenkamm Streif race takes place each January and is one of the reasons that Kitzbühel is such a colossal brand. The course dominates the resort skyline and outputs skiers to the magnetic seats of the Streifalm – a legendary après ski hut at the base of the world’s most famous strip of snow.
The medieval centre of Kitzbühel exudes style and luxury, with a labyrinth of walkways around Kitzbühel centre offering numerous impressive shops and entertainment venues. The combination of medieval charm, upmarket & stylish accommodation and endless resort facilities that serve the year-round resort mean that Kitzbühel is just about peerless, anywhere in the world.

There are 2 distinct ski areas above Kitzbühel, the Hahnenkamm side and the Kitzbüheler Horn area. Of the 2 the Hahnenkamm offers the vast majority of terrain whilst the Horn side provides the Kitzbühel snow park. Not only is the Hahnenkamm the bigger area it also links with neighbouring areas such as Kirchberg, the Westendorf ski area and also serves as the access point to Pass Thurn, the extent of the Kitzbühel ski area to the south of the town. Much of the skiing in Kitzbühel is tree lined and for intermediates the area is outstanding.
For advanced skiers and snowboarders there is off-piste and of course the Hahnenkamm ski route. Beginners have a large area located on the edge of the resort and before the Hahnenkamm peak rears up. And for those improving then there is a good deal of terrain at the top of the Hahnenkamm gondola to advance into. Ski safaris out of Kitzbühel are excellent and extensive and local buses running between the network of resorts offers a good safety net for those missing the last lift back.
One of the most spectacular live events anywhere, in any sport and with a post-race party to match.
Kitzbühel is one of the big hitters of global après ski - clean living required in the weeks before arrival!
This impressive spectacle graces Kitzbühel each winter with an international competition and serious hospitality.
For atmosphere, there cannot be any better mountain village in the world. The Medieval centre of Kitzbühel is a labyrinth of streets and walkways with stylish shops, cafés, bars and hotels. The resort skyline is capped by the church domes whilst the horizon is dominated by the Hahnenkamm and Kitzbüheler Horn peaks.
Fur is as ubiquitous as Gore-Tex and as you wander the pedestrianised streets, the atmosphere and style of the place is unmistakable. In the evening the resort is alive with visitors strolling the streets and sampling the bars and restaurants. Kitzbühel is a year-round, working town and its facilities are really second to none.
KITZBÜHEL APRÈS SKI
One of the Goliath’s of world après ski - bars such as the Londoner and the Streifalm are what makes Kitzbühel après ski so special. The Streifalm is located on the lower slopes of the Hahnenkamm ski route and for those having tackled the fearsome ski route it is customary to kick off the skis and get some Kitzbühel après ski reward. Accessed by road from the resort and next to the gondola base-station, the Streifalm also welcomes the mere mortals.
Mountain huts are located all over the Kitzbühel ski area and most are highly popular with passing skiers and snowboarders. The Londoner pub is located in the centre of Kitzbühel and offers après ski mayhem till late. Both have a well earned reputation as après ski venues of immense repute. Kitzbühel though offers a plethora of post ski entertainment including fine dining , a casino and bar and some more regular watering holes that are frequented by the locals.
