Kitzbuhel
 
Kitzbuhel

Kitzbuhel is an impressive name to drop in the pub. Every Ski Sunday viewer knows that the Hahnenkamm racecourse is the most challenging on the World Cup circuit, helping the resort to cultivate a reputation as a rather special place. But the racecourse is untypical of Kitzbuhel's slopes and there is nothing very special about coping with icy, slushy or bare slopes. We have visited Kitz countless times, and rarely found decent snow on the lower slopes. It does of course get good snow at times and has invested serious money in snowmaking.

The actual village of Kitzbuhel dates back to the 13th century. Its charm is accented by painted medieval houses, colorful sidewalk cafs, and stylish shops. Festive flags and buntings adorn the streets and buildings of this little Austrian town, which plays host to international athletes, ski fans, and the rich and famous from all over the world.

==== KITZBUHEL - LOCATION

Located at the southern foot of the Kitzbuheler Horn (elevation 6,548 feet/1,998 meters), this village was chartered in 1271 and held as a fief by the bishops of Regensburg and Bamberg under the dukes of Bavaria until 1504, when it became part of the Tyrol.

==== KITZBUHEL - ATTRACTION

Kitzbuhel is one of Austria's best known and fanciest winter sport resorts, situated between the mountains Hahnenkamm (5616 ft.) and Kitzbuhler Horn (6548 ft.). The Hahnenkamm is home of the annual world cup ski races, including the circuit's most important event, the downhill race on the famous Streif slope. This downhill is counted as one of the hardest downhill competitions in the world cup. During summer time Kitzbuhel also hosts an ATP tennis tournament on clay, the Austrian Open.

The festive mood of this town during the Hahnenkamm race is contagious, and it's easy to get caught up in the excitement of one of the most important race events in Europe. Celebrities dot the crowd and world-class athletes like the Hermanator (Hermann Maier) and members of Olympic teams stroll down the street, rubbing elbows with tourists and locals.

The Kitzbuheler Alpenrallye is an annual festival of historic automobiles.
