In summer


In summer, Kitzbühel is a paradise for all hiking enthusiasts. Because there are countless beautiful hiking trails! How about a hike to the Kitzbüheler Horn, for example? Or would you like to experience the Streif without snow and ice? And what do you say to an exciting hike to the Ellmauer Tor on the Wilder Kaiser? There is so much to see and experience! And the best thing is: once you reach the top, huts await you with delicious food. Admittedly, we hiked up the Streif precisely because we wanted to eat delicious food in the Hahnenkamm Stüberl.

To find the best hiking trails for you, take a look here or check out Komoot for hiking routes! You can also find out more about our Streif hike below.


Kitzbühel is also worth a short stroll through the town (even in winter, of course!). The many colorful houses in the town center are omnipresent. Here and there, a store invites you to browse around or a café invites you to linger. For our lunch break, we like to sit in the Pano and watch the hustle and bustle of people.


Kitzbühel also has plenty to offer water lovers in summer! The moor lakes Schwarzsee and Gieringer Weiher also offer a cure for the skin when splashing around thanks to their moor water. If you'd rather have some water fun, then head to the Kaiserbad or Goinger Badesee outdoor pools. Here you can slide into the cool water and experience a breathtaking panorama at the same time. Either way, you won't be disappointed.


Do you prefer to travel by bike? No problem! Kitzbühel has just as many beautiful cycling and hiking trails to offer. You can climb almost every mountain on the back of your two-wheeler. You can find the most beautiful routes here. However, be careful and wear a helmet at best. It can be quite steep at times!

I have put together a list of all the places on Google Maps.

The Streif

The Streif is known worldwide as one of the most difficult ski race courses in the world. That's why the Hahnenkamm race is the highlight of the year. But the Streif also attracts people in summer. Because where skiers race down in winter, you can hike in summer.

The starting point of the hike is the parking lot at the Hahnenkamm cable car. From here, it is a 5 km and 880 meter ascent. The hike takes around 2 1/2 hours in total. However, it is worth straying from the path here and there. The Seidlalm lakes, for example, are a great place to take a breather.

Once you've worked up a sweat at the top, you can walk a little further to reward yourself with a meal at the Hahnenkamm Stüberl after your exertions! If you prefer to take it easy on your knees afterwards, you can also take the cable car instead of hiking down.
