The Kitzsteinhorn is a mountain in the main chain of the Alps in the district of Kaprun, Salzburg, Austria. The Kitzsteinhorn is part of the Hohe Tauern range in the eastern Alps and reaches a height of 3,203 m. The glacier skiing region of Kitzsteinhorn lies only 8 kilometers away. A must for those who like to ski on the finest glacier snow at 3,000 meters above sea level while appreciating the incredible views over endless peaks. Enjoy guaranteed snow and a beautiful white landscape here from autumn. Embedded in the Hohen Tauern Alps the Kaprun Glacier scores with its large variety of different ski pistes: from steep and challenging descents to gentle slopes, the local mountain of Kaprun offers everything a winter sports fan could wish for! Snowboarders and freeriders will find their challenge in the three snow parks. Experience the fascinating Alpine world of Salzburg's highest mountain range and the excitement of the ice arena.

The Kitzsteinhorn is a monumental mountain. At an altitude of 3,203 metres above sea level the Kitzsteinhorn is one of the most impressive mountains in all of Austria. The mountain and its glacier are part of the Hohe Tauern National Park. The legend of the Kitzsteinhorn: more than just a glacier, it's the glacier and the first glacier skiing region in Austria - an alpine inspiration 365 days a year. Surrounded by the highest peaks in Austria, this is mountain adventure at its most mighty. The pistes are vastly spectacular and constantly shrouded in a metre of natural snow.

De Kitzsteinhorn is één bergtop in In het hart van Oostenrijk. De Kitzsteinhorn maakt deel uit van de Hoge Tauern in de Centrale Alpen en bereikt een hoogte van 3203 meter. In 1828 bereikte Johann Entacher als eerste de top. De Kitzsteinhorn is het middelpunt van een van de grotere gletsjerskigebieden van Oostenrijk. Al in de herfst en tot ver in de zomer kun je hier grote en zonnige gletsjerafdalingen bedwingen. Skiërs vinden hier pistes voor alle niveaus, van vlak en gemoedelijk tot en met meer uitdagende afdalingen naar de Sonnenkar of Langwiedboden.
Op zoek naar nog meer avontuur? Dan moet je op de permanente wedstrijdafdaling, de buckelpiste of bij de pipes in Langwied zijn. Voor snowboarders is er op het gletsjerplateau een funpark. De Kitzsteinhorn is niet alleen de hoogste skiberg van het SalzburgerLand, je hebt hier ook een geweldig uitzicht vanaf het hoogste punt - bij het bergstation lijkt het alsof je op de top van de wereld staat!
