The Grand Hotel Kitzbühel was built in 1903 as a luxury hotel in the heart of the city Kitzbühel. Guests from Hungary, Germany, England, Russia, and North America stayed during its golden years. The hotel temporarily served as a hospital during the First and Second World Wars.

Years passed, and after several restorations, it became a residence for nobility and aristocracy. In the mid-1930s, the hotel became an absolute showpiece. Even during the Second World War, the influx of guests did not cease.

In 1976, the hotel was briefly renamed "Park Hotel," and after some setbacks, the traditional hotel flourished anew.

In 1998, the building underwent a transformation, turning from a hotel into a hub for intellect and education, where 100 young managers from around the world engage in weekly exchanges.
