In 1893 Franz Reisch became the first person in Austria to win an alpine downhill ski race, held on the Kitzbüheler Horn mountain. This is the time when the legend of Kitzbühel was born. Today it lives on, fuelled by the annual Hahnenkamm downhill race in January on the infamous Streif course. But it is not only world-class skiers who benefit from Kitzbühel's reputation and infrastructure. The ski resort around the Kitzbüheler Horn mountain is one of the most popular in the Alps thanks to its huge range of pistes catering for all abilities.
