Things to do in Kitzbühel

Old Town Magic

Strolling around the cobblestoned paths, it is easy to feel the old history of Austria. This is a town that the big business haven’t reached, and a place where the old is preserved and celebrated. From cozy locally owned bars to tiny specialized shops, it is a haven for the traveler looking for an authentic experience.


A destination for every season

In the summer you can explore the countryside by biking or hiking. When winter comes, one of the most popular things to do in Kitzbühel is to swoosh down the snowy mountains.


Kitzbühel, city with a view

Kitzbühel is famous for the surrounding mountain areas, which allows for intense, breath taking experiences. You can take the automated cableways up the mountain to get a view over the entire area. But what is even more rewarding is the feeling you get when you have hiked for several hours to get to the top of one of the mountains and then look at the path you took to get where you are now standing.


A candle lit dinner for two or a crazy night to remember?

In the same way that you can pick and chose which season you want to experience in Kitzbühel, the same can be said of the mood that you want to set. Bundle up near a fireplace in your favourite café with a steaming cup of chocolate, while looking through the ice covered window at snow slowly falling down. Or, experience the crazy parties in the after ski resorts and night clubs where you can meet people and make friends for the ski slope, or even better, for a life time.
