Austrian Tyrol, Austria, Alpbach
The welcoming Hilde Moser maintains a lovely, well-kept house which offers panoramic views and many local, homely features. Located just 5 minutes' walk to the village centre, hiking trails and shops, this well placed accommodation will compliment your holiday experience.
Alpbach has very few flat sections in and around the village. We do not recommend this resort for guests with limited mobility.
Board basis options available
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.
