Kitzbühel is a medieval town situated in the Kitzbühel Alps along the river Kitzbüheler Ache in Tyrol, Austria, about 100 km (62 mi) east of the state capital Innsbruck and is the administrative centre of the Kitzbühel district.

Kitzbühel is a ski resort of international renown and when possible,its ski season lasts from mid October to early May. During winter and early spring it is frequented primarily by the jet set clientele from Austria and from abroad.

Together with the pistes and ski lifts in neighbouring Kirchberg in Tirol, Jochberg and by the Thurn Pass it is one of the largest ski regions in Austria. With around 10,000 hotel and guest house beds, Kitzbühel and its neighbours have an unusually high density of guest accommodation than other regions in the Four Lands.

Holidaymakers have 56 cableway and lift facilities and 168 kilometres of slopes available to them as well as 40 kilometres of groomed cross-country skiing tracks. Of note is the relatively new 3S Cable Car which is the cable car with the highest 'above-ground' span in the world.

In summer there are also 120 km (75 mi) of mountain bike paths and 500 km (311 mi) of hiking trails.

Other attractions include six tennis courts and four golf courses, the Kitzbühel swimming pool, Austria's only Curling Hall and the bathing lake of the Schwarzsee.

Kitzbühel primarily caters for the high end of the tourist market, as many celebrities and the jet set come here, especially during the international races on the Hahnenkamm.

Together with eleven other towns Kitzbühel is a member of the community Best of the Alps.  KitzSki, Kitzbühel's main ski lift operator, has managed to defend the title of “World's Best Ski Resort Company” for the seventh time in a row at the 2020 World Ski Awards.

Kitzbühel is one of Europe’s best-known winter sports resorts, situated between the mountains Hahnenkamm (elev.5,617 ft)) adjacent to the southwest and Kitzbühler Horn (6,549 ft))  to the northeast. The Hahnenkamm hosts the annual World Cup FIS Ski races including the circuit's most notable single event, the downhill race on the notable Streif slope.

Introduced 85 years ago in 1937 the northeast-facing Streif is among the world's toughest downhill courses, if not the most difficult and is infamous for an abundance of spectacular crashes. In 1959 the Austrian Alpine Ski Championships took place from 27 February to 1 March.

Each summer Kitzbühel also hosts an ATP Tennis Tournament on clay, the Austrian Open.

From 2007 to 2011 ITU Triathlon World Cup races took place at the local Schwarzsee lake.

The Kitzbüheler Alpenrallye is an annual festival of historic automobiles, first held 34 years ago in 1988. The first trip of the United Buddy Bears was 2004 to Kitzbühel, following by the first trip into the "big wide world" – when they went to Hong Kong and many other metropolises on all five continents.

Since 2003 Kitzbühel has been hosting an annual Snow Polo event in January.
