About The NRCSA Center

This NRCSA center is locally family run, and situated in the world renowned ski center of Kitzbühel, Austria. The center was founded in 1981, and was accredited by the governmental body Campus Austria (an organization of German language schools) in 1990. Additionally, its a member of ISA (International Schools Association), AATG (American Association of Teachers of German) and FEDE (Federation Europeenne Des Ecoles).

About Kitzbühel

Kitzbühel is a small town in the Tirol (Tyrol) province of German speaking Austria. The town's population is nearly 10,000 and, at an elevation of 800 meters, is one of the most picturesque mountain towns of Europe. Kitzbühel is a world famous ski and holiday resort (World Cup Hahnenkamm downhill race and slalom) lying between Salzburg and Innsbruck in about 70-80 km distance of each, some 130 km south of Munich, the capital of Bavaria and about 370 km west of Vienna. The surrounding majestic mountains, up to 2,363 m), invite hiking in summer/autumn and skiing in winter/spring.

The history of Kitzbühel began in the 9th century BC with copper mining and commerce. The town owes its name to the nobleman "Chizzo" and was first mentioned in a document as "Chizbuhel" in 1165. In 1504 Kitzbühel became part of Tyrol.

The NRCSA center is located amidst a quiet garden area about 1.5 km from the city centre. Supermarket, hair dresser, tobacco and other shops, mechanic, restaurant, tennis courts, (ski) bus stops, bank with ATM and phone boxes are situated within1-3 minutes walking distance of the school.

Being in such a place, our center focuses on German and skiing in winter and spring, organizing other free time activities and some excursions during summer and autumn. Skiing starts at the earliest mid November, provided there is enough snow. The main season with all 67 lifts operating starts just before Christmas, lasting normally until end of Easter, some lifts operating as long as into May.
