Kitzbüheler Horn

Almost 2,000 m high, the Kitzbüheler Horn rises in the immediate vicinity of its namesake city.

One of the most magnificent excursion destinations near Kitzbühel becomes a vast ski area.


Hahnenkamm? Sounds familiar… The cable car transports you to likely the world’s most famous alpine ski race. Summer offers a particularly diverse hiking region with easy paths and steep mountain tours around the mountain station. Mountain bikers cherish the 7.5 km Fleckalm-Trail, leading across 1,000 altitude meters. Don’t miss the excellent cuisine in the alpine huts on the Kitzbühel Alps.
