In the World of skiing there are few better-known resorts than Kitzbühel.
The resort offers all the skiing and après ski you could wish for. The slopes are fabulous and varied, the facilities both on and off the slope excellent and its nightlife as wild as you want it to be. The town is picture postcard perfect too, with its medieval walls, church spires and painted shop fronts.
Add to this, the World's most famous ski race, the annual Hahnenkamm World Cup Downhill, and you have the stuff of legend.
Mere mortals can take on much of the route of the Hahnenkamm too, as it forms part of the tremendous Kitzbühel Ski Circus.
There is a great selection of accommodation on offer in the resort, from bargain rooms to 5-star deluxe hotels. The resort is also easily accessible, so if you can't make it for a week, it is also practical for a weekend break. Kitzbühel is therefore, a great location for a ski or snowboard holiday, for all levels.
