Kitzbühel, the famous Chamois Town, combines all advantages of a small town with an idyllic position in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps. “Chizbuhel” was mentioned for the first time in the 12th century – the name derives from “Chizzo”, a Bavarian clan, and “Buhel”, which indicates its position on a hill. However, a lively past and a centuries-long history characterises the town.
