The icon among Austrian ski resorts is also one of the most exclusive ski regions in the world. The medieval town in the Kitzbühel Alps exerts a special attraction that even international high society cannot resist. Every year, tens of thousands of visitors from all over the world gather here not only for the Hahnenkamm race, but also celebrities such as action movie star Jason Statham or supermodel Irina Shayk enjoy the winter pleasures on and off the slopes. Winter sports enthusiasts will find the best conditions for skiing pleasure as early as mid-November. A total of 233 kilometers of downhill slopes await passionate skiers who glide across the slopes in perfect swing. In addition to the popular sport on two boards, there is a wide range of other activities that provide plenty of fun and variety. It is not for nothing that Kitzbühel is considered one of the most legendary sports towns in the Alps. Visitors can look forward to cross-country skiing, winter and snowshoe hiking, ice skating or curling, among other things.
