Bedded between the gentle mountain meadows and the rocky mountain peaks of the Kitzbühler Alps, lying under the mighty Gratlspitz is the sunny Alpbachtal Plateau standing at 1000m altitude, home to the romantic and historical jewel, the village of Alpbach. Pure mountain air, nature as her mother intended, beautiful local flora & fauna and a host of Alpine wildlife.
The Magic and Allure of Alpbach in Tirol
It is easy to understand why Alpbach has been awarded „The Prettiest Village in Austria“ and „The Prettiest Flower-Decked Village in Europe“ – when you get here you will understand why.
Every building, both domestic and rural is built in the traditional Alpine style. Only the ground floor can be built in stone, the rest must be designed with local wood; the balconies, roof pitch, beams, windowsills. Every home, inn, hotel and farmhouse are decked with a spectacular display of flowers.
Alpbach: traditional, beautiful, charming, progressive and doubtless the most hospitable village in the Tyrol.
A Living Paradise
For all outdoor fans, Alpbachtal is an Eldorado! A range of sports and untouched nature. From skiing, climbing, hiking, and biking, to the wilds of nature in the Brandenberg woodlands and the undisturbed terrain of the Alpbach mountains.
In summer enjoy 900km of marked walking, hiking and biking paths. Spectacular lakes and streams to swim and cool off in, three gorges one more bewitching than the other. Fly across the mountain peaks via a tandem flight.
A winterwonderland awaits you from December to April. The award winning Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschonau ski region has 109km of prepared pistes, fabulous touring and off-piste opportunites, sledge through the wilderness or on prepared paths, snow shoe walking aross snow covered meadows, prepared winter walking routes – it looks like a fairytale, and is an undeniable winter paradise
