Experience an Alpine winter in a holiday home in the Kitzbühel Alps
A mountain range in the Central Eastern Alps in Austria, the Kitzbühel Alps includes the areas of Sankt Johann, Pillerseetal, Brixental, Wildschönau and Alpbach. The dramatic landscape encompases deep forests, towering peaks, valleys and mountain lakes with villages interspersed between. International events, such as the legendary Hahnenkamm Ski Race, bring in high profile visitors adding to the glamour of a holiday in the Kitzbühel Alps and holiday homes, holiday rentals, holiday apartments and holiday houses are available to suit all tastes and budgets.
Nature and outdoor activities
Sportberg Gaisberg is a popular destination for its nocturnal skiing and tobogganing whilst Brixental, with its extensive network of trails winding through an unspoilt landscape, attracts both cross country skiers and hikers. The village of Kirchberg, which lies 7 km from Kitzbuhel, is worth visiting for its dramatic panoramic views. Summer brings with it the promise of mountain biking, rafting and canoeing as well as fishing and swimming in the lakes. With its numerous cable cars and gondola lifts, the Kitzbüheler Horn mountain range is perfect for those in a hurry to hit the slopes. Along with the annual World Cup ski race in Hahnenkamm, the region hosts the Kitzbüheler Alpenrallye, an annual festival of vintage automobiles.
Today a ski resort of international repute with a largely pedestrianised town centre and a range of shopping and culinary options, the medieval town of Kitzbühel, on the banks of the Kitzbuhler Ache, was originally settled between 1100 and 800 BC. Places of interest include the 12th century St. Catherine's Church, the Reisch Dance Cafe, which was built in 1928, and the Kitzbühel Museum which showcases the work of the Tyrolean painter Alfons Walde. Vistors who rent holiday homes, holiday apartments and holiday houses in the region should be sure to try Tyrolean specialities such as Kaiserschmarrn, (shredded pancakes with raisins), Backhendl (breaded chicken) and Gröstl, a hearty dish of meat and potatoes.
