Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Enjoying a prime location in the centre of the village, Hotel Post is full of the charm of a typical Alpbach house and has many traditional features. The bar and stube are wonderfully rustic with the restaurant serving Tyrolean and Austrian specialities.

The breakfast buffet also on offer sets you up nicely for the day ahead. Tucked away at the rear of the hotel is a lovely private garden and pool area. Spend some time in the outdoor Finnish ‘Hut Sauna’ before taking a refreshing dip in the outdoor pool and a rejuvenating trip to the eucalyptus steam bath. Bedrooms are rustic and offer high levels of comfort.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour from Innsbruck airport or 2 hours 15 mins from Salzburg Airport.

Alpbach

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.
