Kitzbühel: the gem in Austria’s crown
Nestled between high mountains like a pearl held in an oyster shell, Kitzbühel is a true gem. It’s a typical representative of Austria’s alpine communities. The alleys and streets of its medieval old town are lined with colourful houses characteristic of traditional Austrian architecture. Painted wooden window shutters and purple and white petunias adorning the façades make these buildings a lovely sight to behold.
