The famous ski resort of Kitzbuhel has a long history of hosting the legendary Hahnekamm Men’s downhill competition every January.  This elegant, historic town with its colourful, medieval buildings and its pedestrian zoned cobbled streets are filled with stylish accommodation, boutique shops, wonderful bars and restaurants and friendly après ski.  With more than 50 lifts up to 2000 metres, there is around 170 km of ski runs to keep you occupied.  The terrain will mainly appeal to beginners and intermediates but advanced skiers and boarders will also find plenty of challenging runs.  Use of all the practice lifts in Kitzbuhel is free, which is a wonderful opportunity for families, beginners and those who have not skied for a while.  With more than 60 kilometres of groomed cross-country trails, Kitzbuhel caters very well for the classic and skating cross-country enthusiasts as well.  If you’d like to spend a day off the slopes, treat yourself to sometime in the Aquarena wellness and health centre in the heart of Kitzbuhel or enjoy the fun of ice skating on a natural ice lake.  Free ski buses run throughout the town and make it easy to get around.  Kitzbuhel is a member of the ‘Best of the Alps’, a twelve resort partnership epitomising what a true classics resort should offer.
