Kitzbühel is one of the big-name ski resorts in Austria. This vibrant Tyrolean town, with excellent amenities and a rich skiing heritage, lies in the heart of a substantial ski area; its slopes connected to several neighbouring villages and can be tackled via a popular 'ski safari' route. The larger Kitzbühel Alps Pass is one of the world's biggest ski pass networks, with nearly 1,100km of trails on the one ticket, encompassing neighbouring ski regions, including Austria's largest – the Skiwelt (280km of piste) – a short bus ride away.
Along with its skiing, the town of Kitzbühel itself is a good size and home to a great range of shopping, dining and accommodation options, including a larger-than-average choice at the haute couture/gourmet/luxury end of the market, as well as offering everything for the less well-heeled too.
Dominated by the mighty Hahnenkamm peak, skis were first seen in the village more than 120 years ago in the early 1890s. And the first edition of the world-famous Hahnenkamm Race was staged here in 1931; the event has run each January since and is still the highlight of the annual World Cup calendar today.
