About This Walk
Kitzbühel, this cosmopolitan mountain town bordered by pretty walking paths and the sparkling Swarzsee lake.
Affectionately known as Glitzy Kitz thanks to its upmarket shops and cafés, there’s so much more to Kitzbühel than meets the eye. Dating back to medieval Bavaria, it’s filled with cobbled streets and colourful, frescoed buildings. And towering over its rooftops is the Church of St Catherine, considered a perfect example of the high Gothic style. But it’s those views from the mountaintops that’ll really take your breath away – just hop on the summer lifts and you’re there.
Lakes and peaks
The lake and the mountains come together in Kitzbühel. One day, you’re soaking up the sun on the shores of the Schwarzsee lake. Then next, you’re picking up a wanderwegplan, or walking map, and exploring the mountain paths on the Kitzbüheler Horn – and spotting some of the 300 different species of plants in its Alpine flower gardens.
The town really comes alive in summer, with loads of different events and festivals – from the Kitz on Wheels festival in mid-July, when bikers spend the weekend showing off their wheels, to the highly popular Town Band festival in early August, which is an amazing weekend of music and fun. So whenever you choose to visit, there will always be something to make your holiday memorable.
