Austria’s Best Ski Resort
Come with us on a city walk through Kitzbühel's historic centre. Our tour takes you to the most beautiful places and sights in and around Kitzbühel's old town.
Duration: 1.5 hours
Kitzbühel - world famous sports town
Kitzbühel owes its worldwide reputation as a sports town primarily to the legendary Hahnenkamm race on the Streif.
The numerous plaques of honour in the Legends Park, which we will discover together during our guided walk, commemorate all the previous Hahnenkamm race winners and the ski legends who are native to Kitzbühel.
Among them are the 3-time Olympic and 7-time Ski World Champion Toni Sailer and the multiple Ski World Cup winner Hansi Hinterseer.
However, Kitzbühel cannot be reduced to sport alone, but has much more to offer. Before skiers discovered the town, guests came to Kitzbühel for their summer retreat. The first heyday of international tourism began in the 1920s and 1930s. Kitzbühel hosted an international, especially English audience, whose most famous representative was the Prince of Wales and later short-reigning king Edward VIII.
During a leisurely stroll, we will show you the many facets of the so-called Gamsstadt (Chamois town).
Our tour provides the historical background to the town's development in the 13th century and explains what once shaped Kitzbühel and determines its character today.
The small idyllic old town with its colourful house facades invites you to visit.
Together we will discover the following sights:
• Toni Sailer's birthplace
• The facade paintings of the former Harisch Inn
• The Saint Catherine's Church
• The parish church of St. Andrew
• The Anniversary Garden
• The city fountain
• The town hall
• The Kitzbühel Museum
• The former Capuchin monastery
