The town of Alpbach, amid the Kitzbühel Alps and the Rofan Mountains in Tyrol at 1.000 meters above sea level, is considered due to the uniformly built wooden houses and the floridity to be the "most beautiful village in Austria".
The idyllic and authentic ambience contributes to a memorable and relaxing holiday. During winter, you can use the tenth largest ski resort of Tyrol, skiing in the ski jewel Alpbachtal Wildschönau or making yourself comfortable in one of the 25 huts. End your adventurous day of skiing in one of the numerous après skis.
If you need a break from skiing there are many other sports like tobogganing on the safe toboggan run in Alpbach Luegergraben or you can let off steam while ski touring, cross-country skiing or horse sleigh rinding.
An absolute must during winter season is a visit to Rattenberg, the smallest town in Austria. Feel like being brought back in time while admiring the city, illuminated by candlelight and open fireplaces and enjoy a little bit of Christmas spirit.
During summer, Alpbach is known among other things for the International European Forum Alpbach that deals with interdisciplinary issues and takes place annually since 1945 in August. Furthermore, mountain climbing, hiking, paragliding or just relaxing should be a fixture for your vacation plans.
Alpbach has also a rich culinary offer: Have your culinary instincts indulged in the traditional huts by traditional tyrolean dishes such as dumplings, apple strudel and “Kaiserschmarrn” and visit the farmers market in the nearby Brixlegg, which takes place every month and where among other things you should taste the "Alpbach Heumilchkäse".
