You shan't miss ABSOLUTELY the apres ski at Pavillion, just in front of Hahnenkamm Gondola!
It's amasing! People start to go there having fun, beers, Red Bull & Jägermeister in an friendly and busty Tyrolean - British style, every time crowded till 7 pm, then everyone goes to the Londoner, just outside the ancient city walls. Also here you'll find a huge mass of people till 3 o'clock in the morning! MASSIVE!
Kitzbuhel is not a high altitude ski resort which can be an issue . You end up , most of the time , just skiing the upper third of the mountains.
The mountain side restaurants are superb . There is nothing better that Austrian sausages and Austrian beer .
There are beautiful churches in kitzbuhel:
The Pfarrkirche (parish church) was built from 1435 to 1506 and renovated in the baroque style during the 18th century. The lower part of the Church of Our Lady (Liebfrauenkirche) dates from the 13th century, the upper part from 1570. Between these two churches stands the Ölberg Chapel (Ölbergkapelle) with a 1450 "lantern of the dead" and frescoes from the latter part of the 16th century.
Fondest memory: This view of the churches through the trees slightly above kitzbuhel was a favourite view.
Favorite thing: If its too wet to hike then the town is a pleasure to explore with its colourful architecture and if its Saturday then the market is held in the centre and local cusine can be sampled like these cheeses.
Favorite thing: The town has two main streets, both pedestrian walkways: Vorderstadt and Hinterstadt. Along these streets Kitzbühel has preserved its traditional architectural style. You'll see three-story stone houses with oriels and scrollwork around the doors and windows, heavy overhanging eaves, and gothic gables.
Kitzbühel is set within spectacular landscape at the western end of Tirol and is sandwiched between the striking 2,000 metre-high Kitzbüheler Horn and the Hahnenkamm. The town itself is fairly large, with a pedestrianised centre, two churches and a railway station providing good transport links to other areas of Austria.
Fondest memory: This was a view of Kitzbuhel we had on the way down from the Hahnenkamm.
Try to avoid the weekend of the Hahnenkamm-race, when you want to go skiing only
It is in January normally
Fondest memory: Hahnenkamm is a great event but normal skiing is not possible, long lines of peoples waiting at the lifts
Favorite thing: Don't think you won't get great views when travelling on public transport in Austria. I took this photo from the train.
Favorite thing: As with many European town the floral displays are beautiful and an attractive way of introducing the town to visitors and locals alike.
Favorite thing: what I loved above the main street in Kitzbuhel is that even in wet weather the buildings look so colourful and alive, in England they would look so drab.
