Surrounded by meadows and forests and set against the beautiful backdrop of the Gratlspitz peaks, this fairytale village has lost none of its 'olde worlde' charm with picturesque overhanging eaves and balconies with wonderful flowers. The village is a haven of peace and quiet and surrounded by picturesque walking country, from gentle rambles through meadows and woodland to the highest slopes accessed by the Wiedersbergerhorn gondola. There are several shops, restaurants and cafés with flower decked terraces and the village brass band plays regularly throughout the summer, dressed in national costume. The 'Alpbach Seenland Card' gives guests free use of all gondolas and buses in the valley, plus free entrance to many local attractions.
September (16-30) is when the villages in the Tyrol celebrate the annual ‘Almabtrieb’. The festival celebrates the end of the summer when the cows are led down the mountain to their stables for the winter. Cowbells echo through the valley as hundreds of cows pass by, all highly decorated in traditional costume. You’ll be welcome to join in the festivities!
