Kitzbuehel, Austria, a popular ski resort area, was founded as a mining and copper town just 40 mi/65 km southwest of Salzburg (50 mi/75 km east of Innsbruck). Its lovely old town has a number of interesting sights, including the Kitzbuehel Museum, featuring works by the artist Alfons Walde, a cable car museum, a 15th-century church (Pfarrkirche St. Andreas), the 16th-century Lebenberg Castle (now a hotel) and fine Tirolean architecture.
During the summer, you can swim in the Schwarzsee (lake) or take a stroll through the Alpine flower gardens on the Kitzbueheler Horn. Some of Austria's best golf courses are there as well. Winter weather turns the fields into excellent ski slopes.
