Overview 

Kitzbühel has charm and has never forgotten its roots. The secret capital of Tyrol and Pearl of the Alps fascinates more and more international guests each year through its never-ending kaleidoscope of possibilities. 60 lifts and ultramodern snow-making equipment perfectly link all the ski-runs on the surrounding mountain ranges. 350 ski-instructors of 6 skischools teach guests from some 40 nations the joys of snow sports.

Sometimes the name of a resort is enough to conjure up images of Alpine magic. Kitzbuhel is one such name, where a charming town is steeped in history is set against the backdrop of glittering slopes of carefully groomed snow or whole mountains of off piste areas. The mighty Hahnenkamm Downhill race has helped to make Kitzbuhel one of the big names in skiing but it is a resrt that caters for everyone, not just experts.

The scenery is breathtaking. Where else would you find world-class skiing based on a medieval walled town? Fashionable, lively and colourful, the cobbled streets ! are full of atmosphere, an exciting blend of chicness and tradition.
