Review of Kitzbühel

30th March 2013 by marksurridge 

Kitzbuhel is a resort that evokes memories of the great Franz Klammer and his four World Cup Downhill victories on the ferocious Hahnenkamm. The skiing is extensive and challenging but the interlinked pistes of Kirchberg and Jochberg are well served by a modern lift system. The resort is small and intimate and has a ‘village’ feel and there are some excellent hotels. The Hotel Tiefenbrunner is a superb hotel. The standards set by the proactive, highly visible owners and their industrious management team are impeccably high. The warmth and generosity of their welcome is genuine and infectious. The food is superb, the facilities are well maintained and faultless, and the location second to none in this Old School Alpine resort. There are plenty of excellent mountain restaurants; on Pengelstein, the Usterweis is a nice woody traditional place and the Brietmoos over on Pass Thurm, and the village restaurants in Aschau, reward those who ski over from the resort centre. There are plenty of lively bars for ‘apres ski’  including ‘The Londoner’ with live music but La Fonda is certainly worth a look as it is the bar frequented by the locals.
