Sightseeing in Kitzbühel
The town of Kitzbühel perches on a hillside terrace below the Hahnenkamm peak. The town’s tourism industry banks on its medieval nucleus, where two wide streets, the Hinterstadt to the west and the Vorstadt to the east, run parallel between the ancient center’s walls. From the town gates run Bichlstrasse to the southeast, Josef Herold Strasse up the mountain to the west, Franz Reisch Strasse to the northwest toward the Schwarzsee, and Josef Pirchl Strasse northeast toward the train station. On the western edge of the center, train tracks divide the old town from the ski slopes and lifts, eventually running north toward the main station and west past the Schwarsee.
Hop aboard the Hahnenkammbahn gondola, which climbs from the western edge of town up to the Hahnenkamm peak; or, cross the valley to the base of the Kitzbüheler Hornbahn, which climbs in two stages to the Kitzbüheler Horn on the east side of town.
