Kitzbühel - The Legend.

Neues Anhangsbild

Kitzbühel, the legendary city of sport in the Alps. The legend of the Hahnenkamm, Kitzbühel's long-standing sporting tradition and pioneering services in Alpine winter sport and golfing have secured this sophisticated city its global reputation.

This story is continued here today between the international design boutiques and traditional Tyrolean restaurants and the legend is brought to life for guests in various areas: in the alleyways of the old town with its 700 year old history, on the fantastic ski pistes and in Kitzbühel's top hotel industry.

The Tyrolean lifestyle metropolis attracts celebrities and guests from all over the world and is both traditional and modern at the same time. Large-scale international events such as the world-famous Hahnenkamm race, the Snow Polo World Cup, 12 Gault Millau toques distributed between 8 gourmet restaurants, the highest density of luxury hotels in Tyrol and much more make Kitzbühel a truly top class holiday destination.

Kitzbühel has managed to both develop its charm and stay true to its roots like no other winter sports destination.

Kirchberg - Tyrolean charm:

Kirchberg is located at the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps and is just 6 km from Kitzbühel. The gently rolling mountains, charming Tyrolean hospitality, unique culinary treats and colourful nightlife leave no wish unfulfilled.

With its comprehensive range of cable cars and lifts and its wide selection of ski pistes to meet all requirements, the Kirchberg/Kitzbühel winter sports region guarantees unforgettable skiing pleasure. 3 comfortable lift facilities await in Kirchberg – the Fleckalmbahn, Maierlbahn and Pengelsteinbahn cable cars – and transport visitors up to the Kitzbühel-Kirchberg ski area and 5 ideally prepared valley descents. Winter action is guaranteed by day and night on the Gaisberg sports mountain with its ski piste, tobogganing track and ice climbing tower.

Kirchberg is also a hit away from the winter sport fun: The local gastronomy pampers guests with Tyrolean hospitality, culinary treats and social entertainment to suit every taste. Kirchberg also impresses in every season with its wide range of games, sports and leisure for every age group.
