Kitzbühel, the top sporting town in the middle of the Alps, combines tradition and lifestyle. Together with the Thurn Pass, these neighbouring towns form the largest continuous skiing region in Austria, with almost 170 kilometres of slopes. This makes Kitzbühel one of the most important winter sport locations in Austria. Celebrities and the jet set have also discovered the small Alpine city and enjoy numerous events such as the Hahnenkammrennen, with the legendary downhill ski route along the “Streif”. Not only the inhabitants but also holidaymakers use the mountains in summer for mountain biking and hiking. In addition, the Schwarzsee, one of the warmest moorland lakes in the Tyrol, is a popular excursion destination. One can swim in it in summer, and in winter the Schwarzsee is perfect for ice skating and ice stick shooting. Lovers of art and culture can get an insight into the history and culture of the city in the Kitzbühel Museum.
