Austria Ski Accommodation in Kitzbuhel, Austria

Description

The charming town is a walled, medieval settlement painted with delicate frescoes.

The centre is mercifully traffic-free, and a bus service transfers skiers to and from the Hahnenkamm and the Kitzbüheler Horn mountains.

From the 2004–5 season a new gondola spans the valley between the top of the Jochberg ski area and the top of Pengelstein.

This means that the Ski Safari route from the Hahnenkamm to Jochberg and Pass Thurn can now be made in both directions without an annoying walk or a return bus journey.

Kitzbühel does however have a lack of altitude. In recent seasons it has had good snow cover, but conditions in early and late season weeks remain a gamble.

Apres

After the slopes have closed there are bars to suit all tastes, be it a quiet cosy drink or noisy pub full of drunken seasonnaires. It’s one of the great selling points of the resort, and although the village is busy it never gets much busier than other Tyrolean resorts.

The Steifam bar is the closest from the slopes and is excellent for Europop music. It features a beautiful bar and an open fire and attracts a slightly more mature crowd.

You can ski straight to the Pavilion Bar which is next to the Hahnenhamn lifts and is great if you’re looking for a loud and lively atmosphere with a DJ pumping out tunes.

The Highways is an American themed bar which has live music and DJs playing throughout the afternoon and late into the night. www.highways.at/videos.htm

The Londoner pub is always a popular venue and is well-known for its resident band. It always gets very noisy and is great fun. Lots of fancy dress nights and special events are organised here so check out their website before you head over. http://www.londoner.at

For those who’d prefer to relax with a drink and eat teatime cakes and pastries, head to Praxmair or Rupprechter.

Eating out

The trend in Austrian resorts is for most guests to stay on a half board basis; the hotels serve fantastic Austrian classics and are well recommended whether you are a resident or not.

If you are staying self catered then there will be something for all tastes; there’s even a McDonald’s!

Hagstein
Groups eating out will love the Hagstein which is a little further out but you can soak up the surrounding views. The food is served in communal pans which makes it great fun.

Lois Stern
Lois Stern is a little different to most alpine restaurants, serving Japanese-fusion food. The restaurant is modern with an open kitchen and there are beautiful views over Chantelle. It is hugely popular and booking is a must.

Neuwirt
The Neuwirt is regarded as one of the best restaurants in resort and has been given two Gault Miliau and one Michelin star. Opening in 1844, it boasts years of experience in serving the best cuisine created with local produce.

The same chef is also in charge of the restaurant in the Hotel Schwedenkapelle.



Activities

Kitzbuhel has a great range of slopes over a large area which will suit all abilities and skiing styles. If you want a day off or you are not planning on skiing during your stay then don’t worry, there’s plenty to keep you well entertained.

Nordic Walking
Nordic walking is one of the best ways to see the area; routes are in Schwarzsee and Jochberg. There are also some cleared marked trails in Bichlach, which is the moorland behind Schwarzsee with gentle hills.

Jochberg is the main Fitness Sports Park with a variety of routes from an easy 5.1km to an intermediate 8.3km.

Nordic Skiing
You may wish to then move on to Nordic Skiing – this can be a challenging sport and a few hours of training is recommended to learn the technique of moving on the skis. The trails are free, snow sure and extensive.

Ice Skating
The lake in Schwarzsee makes a beautiful place for open skating or sporty “Fritterer” style hairpins. The ice is examined at regular interval for thickness and will be closed if not thick enough, so it is very safe! www.kitzbuehel.com/en/sports_leisure/winter/other_activities

Sledging
Sledging is an ideal way for young and old to enjoy an afternoon. There is only one course in the area at the Gaisberg in Kirchberg and through the night the route is floodlit. The four-seater chairlift will take you up to the top and afterwards there is a mountain hut that is open during the evening for delicious meals. An evening pass for night skiing and toboggan run is €17.50 for adults and €9 for children and toboggan hire is available from €7.80. www.bergbahn-kitzbuehel.at/en/tobogganing-fun-at-gaisberg-1.html

Swimming
On snowy days the Water World Aquarena in the centre of town is a great way to entertain the children. The centre boasts a swimming pool, sauna, and spa. Prices are reduced with a lift pass but without it will set you back €12 for adults, €9.60 for youths and €6 for children.
