Long after the Bronze Age the first reference to the hamlet, Kitzbühel, is in 1165. Later in the 15th century it grew due to silver mining. Today its thirteenth-century walls still encompass this now world-renown ski resort surrounded by its spire like peaks. Kitzbühel was pretty in the Bronze Age and certainly is even more so today. Its car-less cobbled center bustles with lovely shops, cafés, hotels, and restaurants. Compactly developed, everything is walk-able; but for the truly fatigued a bus stop is always nearby. Carrying on with tradition, tea dances are part of an après ski leading to a sparkling nightlife for those with the stamina to enjoy it!

In 2004 Kitzbühel realized a decades-long dream building the unique 1.5 mile long tri-cable gondola connecting the Hahnenkamm/Pengelstein and Jochberg areas. In 05-06 the new Westendorf lift linked Kirchberg. Since 07-08 snowmaking now totally covers the seven ski areas above nine villages, each part of the original Ski Safari. Today Kitzbühel has 57 lifts and 60 mountain restaurants, surpassing Zermatt’s 56! All the improvements have brought the resort into the 21st century. Those brave enough can try the extreme Sedlboden and Hahnenkamm runs, they are two of the places I’ve ever seen danger warning signs. To top choices off, there are 106 miles of off-piste terrain. No wonder their late hometown Olympic hero, Toni Sailer’s renowned ski school has 230 instructors aspiring in his footsteps. Storybook Kitzbühel – always a popular place to ski!

This gem of civilization overseen by renown Chef Simon Taxacher and Mâitress de Maison Sandra Kobald, opened in 2010.

There are 26 colorful rooms and suites, newly expanded pool and spa facilities will ease one’s body, fresh flowers (perhaps roses in January), and then there’s dinner.

Hotel Zur Tenne

  • Superior

The Volkhardt family’s Tenne is Kitzbühel’s après-ski place to be – It’s within the medieval village walls with a colorful three-building façade disguising a 51-room hotel. Brick and tile floors compliment carved paneling throughout. The good sized rooms, suites and apartments have guests in mind: thick walls confine noises, many with canopied beds, and some with fireplaces and Jacuzzis. Enjoy their spa facilities or end your day just relaxing with a cup of tea in their winter garden watching Kitzbühel’s ever-so-chic world pass by.

Hotel Tennerhof

I learned a lot of the Tennerhof’s early history on my March ’16 visit. Back in the twenties one Ian Fleming roared into town. The young drop-out stayed at a small pension, today’s Tennerhof. Its owner, a former British spy, seeded his mind. The Ian Fleming room is still there, almost, okay, not quite the same, as in 1926. Since then the pension has evolved into a sumptuously rustic five-star hotel. The original 1679 building is the hotel’s heart and for 18-19 the von Pasquali Family added three luxury châlets to the hotel’s 39 rooms and their Romerhof’s ten apartments; all within the original farm property. Rooms are furnished with Austrian antiques. There’s superb service; great views across to the Streif and town; they were awarded the leading spa of the world for 18-19; and yes, the delicious dining. Chef Stefan Lenz shares the talents of his Michelin star, two Gault-Millau toques and 15 points every day. So come, or return, to the Tennerhof – you might just run into 007!
