Kitzbühel and Skiing. The connection is timeless and legendary. Since 1893, at the foot of the Hahnenkamm skiing has taken place in Kitzbühel. 54 cable cars and lifts , 179 km of perfectly groomed slopes, superb Freeride possibilities and the world famous "Streif" waiting for you in the, " best ski resort in the world”!
The “flagship” run is, of course, the Family Streif, which elegantly snakes its way around the extremely steep part of the downhill course, before returning to the original racing track at the Seidlalm, dodging the “Hausbergkante” ridge on the incline Ganslernhang and ends up back at the usual finish.

Kitzbühel's nightlife always threatens to be lively, especially at weekends. During the Hahnenkamm weekend it will certainly be extremely crowded and boisterous except perhaps in the casino at the Goldener Greif Hotel. But Kitzbühel has a sedate side too, with such celebrated tea rooms as the Praxmair and Kortschak cafés. Less sedate is the Prax Keller bar down a steep flight of steps next door to Praxmair's, which opens till late. For those whose ski holiday is incomplete without a visit to a noisy pub or bar, it has to be the Londoner, where the Hahnenkamm racers congregate, regardless of triumph or ignominy. The Stamperl, opposite, is just as lively. The Drop In Pub in the Rathausplatz square is worth visiting by day too, when it serves veal sausages, pretzels and fresh tap beer.
