Kitzbühel is located in Tirol, just a bit southeast of famous Wilder Kaiser mountain massif, around 800 m above sea level.
Due to its perfect setting between Hahnenkamm mountain area and Kitzbühel Horn mountain area, it offers fantastic options for hikers (300 km trails) , mountainbikers (700 km paths and trails) and in winter, of course, for skiers, where it has 150 km downhill paths, perfectly combined with ropeway rides and skilifts.
The Bichlach area just north of town has wonderful day hike possibilities and also the famous Schwarzsee, perfect for swimming after a long hiking tour :-)
It is close to Salzburg (some 80 km), to Innsbruck (some 100 km) and so offers enough to see for day city trips.
And with Wilder Kaiser, and the adjacent valleys, it also has much to explore for those who want to escape into the solitude.
