If you’ve only experienced Kitzbühel in the wintertime, you’ve yet to discover most of the charm of this alpine region. As a winter sports resort, Kitzbühel has a long history. Yet before skiers discovered Kitzbühel – sometimes called the Gamsstadt – guests flocked to the town from near and far for their summer holidays. The healthy mountain air, the clear water in the lakes and streams, and the placid grassy mountains have attracted many vacationers and hikers for over a hundred years.

“Kitzbühel Travel Guide”

Kitzbühel, one of the largest and best-known winter sports resorts in Austria, lies in a lovely valley at the foot of the Kitzbüheler Horn. After rising to prosperity in the 16th century thanks to its copper and silver mines, Kitzbühel – nicknamed “Kitz” by those in the know – has since become a fashionable resort catering to an international clientele drawn by its excellent skiing and winter sports events, along with its many ski schools and snowboarding parks. Come summer, activities such as hiking, biking, rock climbing, and golf are popular.

One of the top things to do in Kitzbühel is spending a little time exploring the old town center (Innenstadt) on foot. Built on a long ridge of hills, this historic area consists of two streets: the Vorderstadt and the Hinterstadt. Each of these attractive old thoroughfares are lined with handsome old gabled houses, many of them built in the attractive traditional architectural style typical of the Lower Inn valley.
