Location

The hotel is located in Aurach, 3km from Kitzbühel town centre and ski area. Aurach is a small village with limited amenities and a few restaurants. For access to Kitzbühel, the free ski bus runs through Aurach daily (approx. 5-10 minutes ride). The bus stop is just 3 minutes’ walk from the hote, or take a taxi for convenience.

The nearest ski lifts are in the centre of Kitzbühel called the Hahnenkammbahn and the Kizbüheler Hornbahn. And, a top tip during busier times is to take the ski bus in the opposite direction to Jochberg and jump on the Wagstatt gondola. This will get you up into the ski area much quicker and where the slopes are often quieter.

Kitzbühel

A top Austrian resort both on and off the slopes

Highlights

  • Famous for its candy-coloured buildings, high-end shops and stunning scenery.
  • Mix of traditional mountain huts and chic gourmet restaurants, including eight with Gault Milau awards.
  • Racers and spectators come from all over the world for the famous Hahnenkamm Race in January.

Sandwiched between the Hahnenkamm and Kitzbüheler Horn mountains, Kitzbühel is one of the most cosmopolitan Alpine resorts. An imposing Gothic church and brightly-coloured medieval buildings dot the high street - housing traditional hotels, sophisticated shopping, buzzing après and an atmospheric nightlife. Add to that the scenery, a diverse ski area - with 215km of piste - and it’s easy to understand Kitzbühel's popularity. It’s also home to the Hahnenkamm Streif, the Ski World Cup’s most notorious downhill race - which draws crowds of thousands to the biggest annual ski party.

On one side of the valley the Hahnenkamm gondola gives you access to the main bulk of skiing with miles of terrain and plenty of variety - recently expanded to reach the quieter Jochberg and Resterhöhe slopes thanks to the 3S gondola link. Savvy skiers tend to start the day on the Kitzbüheler Horn - on the opposite side of the valley. The Horn is smaller but also quieter and perfect for warming up your ski legs or getting away from the crowds. It’s also home to a beginner’s snowpark and has plenty of marked snow trails for keen freeriders and snowboarders.

There are over 50 mountain huts and restaurants to choose from for break times – surprisingly it can sometimes work out cheaper to have lunch on the mountain. Most après is concentrated back in town - although on a clear day it’s worth grabbing a drink and a few final rays from a deckchair near the Hahnenkamm top station.

Ski information

Beginners
The wide open nursery slopes at the bottom of the Hahnenkamm gondola, close to the town centre, are where the famous 'Red Devils' ski school meet. These nursery slopes provide the perfect introduction to skiing. The Kitzbüheler Horn also offers some great wide, undemanding blue runs.

Intermediates
Amid the wealth of slopes on the huge ski circuit, linked by an efficient lift system and a free ski bus service, intermediates are in their element - the swooping, wooded runs of the Ehrenbachhöhe and the exhilarating descents of the Kitzbüheler Horn and the Bärenbachkogel at Jochberg, to name but a few of the challenging and manageable pistes in store for the competent skier.

Advanced
Proficient skiers will certainly want to test their skills on the 'Hahnenkamm Streif', considered by many to be the most testing of all the international racing pistes. If you dream of gigantic moguls and exhilarating off-piste, the Ehrenbachhöhe is not to be missed.

Cross-country skiing
The groomed classic and skating-style cross-country trails in Kitzbühel are free to use and most are at valley level. If you're a season langlauf-er, there aren't too many trails to challenge you - only a few have steep climbs and descents, though there is a decent high-altitude track at Pass Thurn. At the Golfclub Kitzbühel-Schwarzsee-Reith, you can also ski from dusk until 9.30pm on 3.3km of floodlit tracks.

Off-piste
Wide powder fields, narrow gullies and spectacular cliff drops make Kitzbühel an exhilarating destination for off-piste skiing. The locals swear by the Kitzbühelerhorn area, with varied terrain and nice slow lifts to help you recover. While most freeriders race over to the Pass Thurn, make sure you bypass to the Raintal as the drop is steeper and the people are sparse. If you want to explore further, the easily accessible backcountry descents stretch across an area of 200km.

* Additional Charges

If the number of people staying in this room is less than the maximum occupancy, there may be a slight charge for under-occupancy. Booking fee’s apply on all bookings and will be confirmed at the time of booking. Minimum booking fee £6 per person.
