The town of Kitzbühel stands in the Austrian Alps near the northern border with Germany, 6 miles east of Innsbruck (via the A12) and 8 miles south of Munich (via the A8). If you hire a car here you’ll be able to tour round the region. In the winter, it’s a snow sports centre; in the summer, there are natural attractions like the Schwarzsee Lake and footpaths in the mountains, which also attract climbers and extreme sports enthusiasts. There are attractive towns nearby too. Pretty Kufstein has a castle to visit and Zell am See stands along the shores of a scenic lake.
