Alpbach Holidays

Considered by many as the most picturesque village in Austria with FREE use of all lifts and walkers' buses

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.
