Kitzbuhel, Austria

Kitzbuhel is a charming, traditional town with a medieval centre that really has something of everything - stunning scenery, atmosphere and some very good skiing on large attractive varied slopes. The nightlife is vibrant and there is much to do in town for non-skiers and skiers alike and there are some elegant and expensive, luxury hotels.

Kitzbuhel centre is traffic free and the cobbled streets and walled old town with quaint church make this a compelling destination for luxury ski holidays. The skiing is largely suited to intermediates although there is plenty of good off-piste for experts. However, the biggest attraction of the ski area is the excellent choice of mountain restaurants that make meeting other members of your party for lunch a treat.

There is much to like about Kitzbuhel - it has enormous charm and it is pretty hard not to have a good time here. It is very much a town rather than a village so there are 'getting about' issues. However, for those looking for some Austrian alpine charm it makes a great choice.
