Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Built by the knights of St. John in 1570 the hotel originated as a stopover for travellers and merchants. It has evolved over the years into the stylish boutique hotel you will find today. Hospitality is a family heritage here and this impressive hotel is a testament to five generations of work.

Set slightly aback from the pedestrianised Kitzbühel centre you will find the medieval appearance of Schwarzer Adler. Inside is a modern reception, bar and lounge with rich and sophisticated décor, while the restaurant is decorated in an authentic pine style. The state of the art spa facilities set over three floors includes an indoor pool, four types of sauna, infrared cabins, steam bath, relaxation room and fitness centre. The heated rooftop outdoor pool is one of the longest in the Alps, providing cinematic views of the Hahnenkamm, Kitzbüheler Horn and Wilder Kaiser mountains.

The kitchen uses largely regional produce and boasts a Gault Millau award, and was recently praised in the Michellin guide. As expected the hotel places emphasis on good food and fine wine.

All rooms have luxurious modern furnishings and high standards of comfort.

The Tirolean town of Kitzbühel dates back to the 16th century and is famous for the vibrantly coloured buildings that line the main pedestrianised cobbled street in the centre. The pavement cafés make great spots for lunch whilst people watching, or visit many of the designer boutiques. 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. E-bikes make getting up to the highest vantage points very easy for you to take in the stunning views. For a more relaxing experience, the Schwarzsee Lake on the edge of the town is perfect for swimming, sunbathing and using the rowing boats to get around this lake in its natural woodland setting.

Located between Innsbruck and Salzburg, Kitzbühel makes a perfect base for sightseeing and exploring the wider area. Our guided excursions will take you to some of the most popular attractions, or use the local train and bus services to explore independently.

In Kitzbühel you'll have one of our reps's in resort who will know the local area and can assist you with any queries.

Journey via the romantic village of Reit im Winkl to the Chiemsee, known as the “Bavarian Sea”. The Chiemsee is the largest lake in Bavaria. The biggest of several islands on the lake and accessible only by boat is Herrenchiemsee. The name derives from a sumptuous and wildly extravagant palace built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Marvel at the richly decorated interior and the stunning grounds all modeled on the Palace of Versailles. A fascinating insight into the world of a truly eccentric King.
