With history dating back to 1893, Kitzbühel has a story worth listening to. Nestled between the Kitzbüheler Horn and the Hahnenkamn mountains, this medieval town boasts a unique charm and an unmistakable blend of tradition, legend and idyllic landscape. Here we take a look at four reasons why Kitzbühel is worth a visit.
1. Guaranteed Snow
This picturesque resort has been open to skiers since the 14th October 2017, longer than any other non-glacier ski resort in the Alps. Its favourable north-west orientation ensures that the snow is guaranteed until April which means over 200 days of skiing until 1st May 2018.
2. World's Best Ski Resort
The Kitzbühel ski region has won a number of international honours, including "World’s Best Ski Resort 2015" and "Austria’s Best Ski Resort 2013-2017". At the 2017 edition of the World Ski Awards, the Oscars of the skiing world, KitzSki was named "World’s Best Ski Resort Company" for a fourth year in a row. Skiers have access to 463ha of prepared slopes, 215km lengths of runs and 68 superbly groomed slopes catering to all levels.
3. Winter Wonderland
Stepping into Kitzbühel is like stepping into a fairy-tale, lights are draped across the historic centre, the dusty winter snow glistens as your eyes descend on the town which dates back to more than 700 years. The scent of hot roast chestnuts fills the air, festive music softly hums, as the winter calendar is filled with seasonal events. The well-known Kitzbüheler Advent continues until 26th December 2017.
4. Kitzbühel has lots to offer
It’s not just skiing that Kitzbühel is well-known for, there is something for everyone. Winter hikes and snowshoe hikes to beautiful viewpoints. Torchlight, sunset and full moon hikes through the snowy winter landscape. Cross-country enthusiast can enjoy 63km of varied trails and or ride around the stunning 2km Schwarzsee lake in a horse-drawn sleigh.
We look forward to welcoming you this winter!
