Kitzbühel Town Museum

The museum in the back town of Kitzbühel tells about the history of the town and the alpine skiing

In Kitzbühel, a very particular house is located which is connected to the medieval town walls: The building was first mentioned in the 16th century, the southwest tower, however, dates back to the time of the town foundation around 1271. Once it housed the municipal granary, but today it represents the Kitzbühel Town Museum (Museum Kitzbühel) with the Alfons Walde Collection. The museum, located in the building Hinterstadt 32, was expanded with the adjacent building in 2020.

Points of focus are ancient crafts, mining, everyday life, faith, and winter sports. The exhibition shows the history of Kitzbühel, its mining history which started around 1,000 BC in the Bronze Age, agriculture and handicrafts but also about Baroque art. Also the recent past with the legendary ski team of the Fifties and Toni Sailer, known as "The Black Flash of Kitzbühel", is mentioned.

The works of the famous local expressionist and architect Alfons Walde (1891-1958) are housed on the 3rd floor and the attic on an area of 250 sqm. About 60 paintings, 100 photos and drawings are shown. The Kitzbühel Town Museum was awarded with the Austrian Museum Quality Seal.
