Travel Guide

Scheffau am Wilden Kaiser which includes outdoor eating

A holiday in the Kitzbuehel Alps and the surrounding area is ideal whatever the season and whoever you’re travelling with – this beautiful, varied region lends itself to family holidays, romantic couples’ getaways and active trips with friends.

With so many legendary ski resorts in the area Kitzbuehel is a must for winter sports enthusiasts, but it’s also great for those who love culture, nature and simply relaxing in front of dramatic Alpine views.

The Kitzbuehel Alps may be a mountainous area, but it’s easy to reach. One of the best ways of getting here is to hire a car from one of the nearby airports – Munich is two hours’ drive away, while Salzburg and Innsbruck are around one hours’ drive away. There are also direct trains from Innsbruck and Salzburg, with the fastest departing from Innsbruck.

Hotels in the Kitzbuehel Alps region range from large and luxurious hotels to family-friendly and budget lodgings with a cosy, traditional feel. Whether you’re looking for affordable two-star or opulent five-star, you can be sure to find something that blends in with the local architecture and offers amazing mountain views. Other services often found in Kitzbuehel hotels include restaurants, spas and saunas. Travellers will also find a handful of ski in/ski out hotels, where they can access the pistes straight from their door.

In winter, the Kitzbuehel Alps are all about skiing. The district is home to some world-class ski resorts, as well as SkiWelt, the largest ski area in Austria. Kitzbuehel town itself gives access to over 100 miles of slopes, as well as fun parks for snowboarding and freeriding, and trails for winter hiking and tobogganing. Other ski areas worth a mention are Hochzillertal, Hochfuegen and Almenwelt Lofer.

In summer, holidaymakers will find hundreds of miles of hiking and mountain biking trails to explore, as well as natural attractions such as bathing lakes and an Alpine Flower Garden.

Kitzbuehel isn’t just for nature and sporting enthusiasts, however. The region is also packed with cultural and historical attractions. The town of Kitzbuehel is home to a local museum, a number of pretty churches and a medieval old town centre, while in the surrounding area visitors will find Kufstein Fortress, the famous Riedal Glas factory and Erl’s iconic Passion Playhouse.

Younger visitors will adore Triassic Park, a family attraction based on dinosaurs and fossil-hunting. Those who prefer to stick to the outdoors can marvel at Kitzbuehel Alps’ stunning scenery and natural attractions, including the bathing lake of Schwarzsee, Krimmler Waterfalls and Sigmund-Thun Gorge.

With so much to do in winter and summer, the Kiztbuehel Alps deserve to be seen as far more than a ski destination. Book a break in the Kitzbuehel Alps and discover for yourself why this is one of Europe’s most scenic and most exciting regions.
