Kitzbühel – the legendary Streif, holiday resort of the rich and beautiful, exclusive chalets and celebs who drink cüpli. The traditional Tyrolean sports town and its holiday villages Reith, Aurach and Jochberg have much more to offer than the clichés listed in the introduction. At the end of August we made a two-day stop in Kitzbühel on our “Austria Tour” and used the time on site to explore the regional gastronomy, picturesque old town alleys and wonderful viewpoints.

We quickly noticed one thing: In Kitzbühel you don’t necessarily have to pull out your “big” wallet. The Gamsstadt covers the entire culinary spectrum from down-to-earth inns to excellent gourmet cuisine. That makes Kitzbühel the perfect holiday destination for connoisseurs – all year round. For a guaranteed delicious holiday, it is worth looking through the following lines with our restaurant recommendations. We have placed the focus on quality family businesses on site and in doing so we have tracked down one or the other insider tip.

1. Take a detour to the Hahnenkammstüberl

You’ve hardly arrived in Kitzbühel and you’re off to the top of the mountain. For our first culinary detour, we take the Hahnenkammbahn cable car from the valley up a good 600 meters up into the Kitzbühel mountains to the Streif start house. The mountain and valley station of the Hahnenkammbahn, officially opened in 1929, bears the same signature as the unmistakable Kitzbühel logo – the elegant Gams. Both designed by the Austrian painter and creative architect Alfons Walde. Based on the stylish and concise formal language of Waldes, the Kitzbühel architect Michael Egger created a monopitch roof for the renewed and expanded Starthaus. The start house is now also accessible to visitors and enables them to experience the spectacular deep view from the perspective of the athletes.
