Hotel Edelweiss is one of Kitzbühel's most popular hotels, and for all the right reasons. It has a perfect quiet location on the edge of the town centre, so you'll only be a five minute stroll away to all the shops and cafe's that line this small Alpine towns streets. If you're a keen walker, you'll be pleased to know that the Hahnenkamm Gondola is only a few minutes walk away as well, so you'll be up on the mountains in no time.

Klaus and Veronika are the perfect hosts and will look after you for your whole stay. They take great pride in their hotel and will gladly share their local knowledge, top hiking trail tips and more to make sure you're having the best time possible. The fantastic reviews you'll be able to find really speak volume here, so you won't be surprised the Edelweiss is consistently voted one of the most popular hotels in Kitzbühel.

The hotel has a well-loved, friendly and traditional atmosphere that Austrian hotels are renowned for. There's a lovely bar and restaurant where you'll enjoy your evening meals six nights a week with great service. On Thursdays the restaurant and bar is closed, giving you a great opportunity to check out the local cuisine and grab a meal in town. We find this works well, as typically Thursday evenings in the town during the summer are popular with the locals with late shopping and live music. In the mornings you'll find a nice breakfast buffet spread where its encouraged to help yourself to a little extra to pack away for lunchtime.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 30 mins from Salzburg airport or 2 hours from Innsbruck airport.

Various festivals, concerts and open-air events are hosted here during the summer months.

Set in a broad valley basin and surrounded by the Kitzbüheler Alps and Wilder Kaiser mountain ranges, the first thing you notice is the pure mountain air. The scenic peaks, valleys and lakes host this town and its friendly locals. Those seeking exploration of the great outdoors can take advantage of the endless trails and views by walking some of the 1,000km of marked walking trails, or cycling some of the 800km of off-road routes.
