Kitzbuhel: A Tyrolean Alpine Gem


Our dinner that night at Goldene Gams was culinary perfection. Some of their signature dishes include Tyrolean mushrooms, pork schnitzel and specialty dumplings. Additionally, this restaurant boasts a prime location in the middle of the town's center, offering some of the best people-viewing imaginable from its sun terrace.

The next morning, we had breakfast at the Hotel Eggerwirt inside their beautiful solarium. Then we visited Wildpark Aurach, the largest wild animal outdoor enclosure in Tyrol and home to more than 250 animals. This family activity was probably one of my favorite animal experiences to date since it affords you the opportunity to experience and pet some of the animals up-close. We saw myriad free-roaming animals, including deer, goats, donkeys and even a herd of cows traveling down the road that greeted us at the entrance. We made some fluffy new friends at the petting stall with some alpacas, llamas, ponies, sheep and rabbits before grabbing some local fare at the park's restaurant, Branderhofstube.

Whether you're exploring a wildlife park, flying down the mountains on skis or simply exploring the town's medieval streets, Kitzbuhel is a year-round destination that has it all.
