Hahnenkamm Lodge is one of the most private luxury ski chalets in the Alps. This beautiful luxury mountain retreat sits at 1,645m and commands views over Kitzbühel and the far-reaching mountain range. Hahnenkamm Lodge is named after Mount Hahnenkamm, on whose slopes it is situated. Its prime ski-in, ski-out position ensures guests can retreat back to relax and recover in no time. You probably already know its name, as this piste is famous for hosting the world renowned downhill race, The Streif.

Hahnenkamm Lodge is also the perfect luxury winter retreat for its sumptuous spa area. Featuring a steam bath, Finnish sauna and relaxation area, the spa experience is as impressive as the tailored-to-you catering service. Guests can expect 5-star culinary delights, served at breakfast and dinner, and an open bar to accompany mealtimes; inclusive of house Cremant, a generous wine selection and expertly mixed cocktails ensuring the whole group stays well-‘hydrated’. There’s no better spot to enjoy drinks than the outdoor terrace, watching the mountain sunset next to the firepit! This unique experience at Kitzbühel’s most luxury private ski chalet will definitely be one to remember.
