In a quiet location but near the centre of Alpbach is the lovely Pension Edelweiss. There are several hiking trails in and around the village to enjoy, or you can hop on the bus to the Wiedersbergerhorn lift and head up into the mountains to explore.

Exceptional hospitality and a personal touch

The guest house is hosted by the welcoming Hilde Moser, and is full of homely touches - it was awarded four Edelweiss by the Tyrolean Private Room Association. Rooms and apartments are well furnished, with everything you need for a comfortable stay. There are five spacious double rooms with ensuite bathrooms and private balconies, and three beautiful apartments (Haus Edelweiss Apartments) designed in typical Alpbach style.

There's a pretty garden and a small terrace with loungers and shades where you can bask in the sun, relax with a book, or just soak in the beautiful alpine views.

A simple but delicious buffet breakfast is served every day. For evening meals there are restaurants nearby, and the staff are always happy to offer their top recommendations.

24/7 support & tailored advice from our local resort team


Surrounded by meadows and forests and set against the Gratlspitz peaks, Alpbach is a village from the pages of a fairy tale. Wooden houses with flower-filled balconies decorate peaceful streets, while many of the surrounding farms have been run by the same families for centuries. This makes it one of the best places for digging into mountain food – just the fuel you need for hiking. Gondolas glide up to mountain tracks, footpaths meander along meadows and valleys, and three gorges line up some seriously dramatic vistas.

Walking holidays in Alpbachtal

There are around 900 kilometres of marked paths around Alpbach – and the Wiedersbergerhorn gondola is a great introduction to them. It whisks walkers up to the highest slopes above Alpbach, where some of the most beautiful hikes in the Kitzbühel Alps unroll. For more of a challenge, clamber to one of the three peaks of Gratlspitze mountain for views into the valley far below. There are also plenty of wanders between the villages, farmsteads and serene chapels along the valley floor. Not sure where to begin? Join a guided walking tour from the tourist office.

Alpbach Valley style

Many of the houses, shops and cafés in Alpbach haven’t changed since the first log was laid. They all showcase a distinct woodcarving technique that shapes everything from gables and altars to the furniture in hotels and restaurants. However, one building has broken the mould. The Congress Centre - which hosts the annual scientific and political European Forum Alpbach - blends into the mountainside like a glass Hobbit house.

Architecture isn’t the only thing special about Alpbach. Alpbachtal Hüttenjause food platters lay out Tyrolean specialities such as mountain sausages and hay-milk cheese (tastier than it sounds). Most ingredients are plucked from the farms of the Alpbach Valley, some of which have been in the same family for over 300 years. Go to the Alpine Farmers’ Museum, about a 20-minute bus ride away, to see how people lived in centuries past.

Family holidays: mountain coasters and enchanted forests

Alpbach is a paradise for young children - the Wiedersbergerhorn lift is the gateway to Lauserland – a mountain playground with an alpine rollercoaster, panoramic towers and rope courses. Further along the Alpbach Valley, another lift goes from Reith im Alpbachtal to the tree swings and wobbly bridges of Juppi’s Enchanted Forest. Reith is also the spot for swimming in the village’s picturesque lake.

Gorge hikes and exploring on bikes

There are three gorge walks within easy reach of Alpbach. A 1.5-hour ramble along Tiefenbach Gorge winds past a turquoise river and otherworldly rock formations, the speedy waters of the Kaiser Gorge are a favourite with white-water rafters and experienced kayakers, and the Kundl Gorge lays out an easy path along one of the most dramatic canyons in Austria. 

Cyclists are in their element in Alpbach too, with routes including forest tracks, high-altitude paths between mountain huts and quiet mountain roads.
