For 100 years now, Kitzbühel has attracted some of the world’s best skiers as well as international jet-setters in search of the ultimate Après-Ski.
The nine gourmet locations and 13 Gault Millau restaurants around the resort, provide the ultimate end to a day's skiing. Such renowned chefs as Bobby Bräuer from the Grand Tirolia Golf & Ski Resort, who received the title of cook of the year 2012 from Gault Millau restaurant guide Austria, feature in Kitzbühel. Both Bräuer and Thomas Dreher who cooks at Restaurant Ritterstern in the resort have three toques (chefs hats) to their name from Gault Millau which indicate some of the highest quality in food in Austria.
