Gastronomy/Eating at the ski resort Kitzsteinhorn/​Maiskogel – Kaprun

Pleasure on all levels is the motto of the restaurants on the Kitzsteinhorn. The wide and varied selection from the valley all the way to the summit station at 3,029 metres offers something for every taste. From typical Austrian fare to international specialities, from a relaxed sun terrace to après-ski at an umbrella bar, simply choose your preferred option depending on cuisine and altitude. On the Maiskogel, there are rustic ski huts and traditional mountain restaurants, both self-service and with table service. There is a very informal atmosphere in the huts. The large sun terraces tempt you to extend your break.
