simply THE race. A race which leaves both the participants and onlookers short of breath and describes the character of this small town better than any words could.

When history becomes the present day. The name Kitzbühel is shaped by the extensive landscape paired with the majestic mountain backdrop of the Wilder Kaiser, Kitzbüheler Horn and Hahnenkamm and has always represented two main things – sport and

lifestyle. While often claimed to be opposites, these two elements in fact form a charming symbiosis and represent everything we love about Kitzbühel: a town with self-confidence and prominence. A town which keeps up with

the times. Kitzbühel both motivates and captivates its guests with a unique historical old town influenced by Alfons Walde and promises wonderful times ahead.
