The Home of Skiing

Kitzbühel has always been one of the most popular destinations for skiing holidays. Skiing was and still is a central element for the city’s identity. Since 1892, when the skiing pioneer Franz Reisch skied down the “horn” for the first time, this sport has found a home and it is impossible to image Kitzbühel without skiing. Nowadays, the skiing area Kitzbühel – Kirchberg – Pass Thurn offers 170 km of slopes between Hahnenkamm and Restehöhe peak. And right at the entrance of the city, you will find the “Streif” – the internationally known race track in Kitzbühel. You have to go down this special slope at least once during your holiday in Kitzbühel. Off the slopes, winter in Kitzbühel can also be very quiet. Take your time and discover the white landscape – therefore, the mountains in Kitzbühel offer perfect conditions. Ski touring is e.g. possible in the Bichlalm ski touring area where you will find true powder snow pleasures. Cross-country skiers await romantic tracks around Lake Schwarzsee. The tracks are floodlit and provided with artificial snow.
