“Hahnenkan Downhill Ski Races”
Reviewed 2 February 2006

Every year - usually the third weekend in January - Kitzbühel stages the world famous Hahnekam Downhill Ski Races.

The downhill course, known as "Die Streif", is breathtaking and has a reputation of being THE downhill race of the World Cup season. It is always staged on the Saturday.

The weekend also stages the Super G on Friday, and slalom races on Sunday. The latter also counts in combination with the downhill for a prestigous combined prize.

“ski holiday in kitzbuhel”
Reviewed 17 April 2005

we spent the first week in march in kitzbuhel this year . compared to the purpose built concrete wastelands of the french alps the resort which is actually a medeiaval walled town dating back 900 years , was absolutely beautiful .
as experienced skiers we found the skiing on and off piste both challenging and enjoyable . Our hotel , the Tirol run by nielsons was fantastic being close to both the hahnenkahm and the kitzbuheler horn gondolas as well as the town centre .
nightlife was varied and abundant but we were particularly impressed with a bar restaurant called Brass Monkeys which is english owned and run . the food and drinks were first class and reasonably priced and the atmosphere and music were great without being too much .
i would recommend kitzbuhel to anyone and if you make it to brass monkeys say hi to chipper or stu who will invariably give you a complimentary welcome schnapps .

“Wonderful two weeks in Kitzbuhel”
Reviewed 3 August 2004

My wife and I have recently returned from a wonderful holiday in the lovely city of Kitzbuhel which has so much to offer. Although it rained a lot there was plenty to do and interesting places to go when it was wet. The mountains all around provided grand walks. We stayed at the Hasselsburger which we found very friendly with good food and comfortable bedrooms. We did not agree that we were 'born to be in Kitzbuhel 8 to 11 July' but then we do not have a Harley Davidson. We plan to go to this lovely place again later this year.
