Activities in winter


Follow in the tracks of skiing icons and test yourself on the world's most famous downhill run: the Streif. This legendary run where the international elite do battle every January is just one of the many challenging pistes in what is widely regarded as the world's best ski resort. Those who enjoy cruising and appreciate the finer things in life will find plenty of easier slopes connecting cosy wooden huts serving traditional food from the region.



Untouched nature. Total silence. The sporting challenge. Good friends. There are lots of reasons why ski touring is booming right now. In the Kitzbühel Alps you will find several areas of off-piste to explore. Starting point is the Sporthotel Reisch in the centre of the town.
