Ready to embark on an unforgettable journey?
Alpbachtal’s ten villages promise cultural highlights, such as the largest open-air museum in Tyrol, and opportunities to sample local delicacies, such as the award-winning Alpbachtal hay milk cheese. You also have plenty of opportunities to enjoy gentle exercise amidst a unique natural setting.
Skiing in the Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau, cycling and hiking in the Tyrolean Mountains plus exciting events all year round – that’s active holidaymaking in the Alpbachtal.
Allow us to introduce you to our favourite places in the region, such as the "Blue Eye of the Rofan", the Wiedersberger Horn with Lauserland children's mountain top adventure playground and the natural jewel, Lake Berglstein. There’s so much for young and old to discover in the Alpbachtal.
Are you travelling with your family? Well that's good because the Wiedersberger Horn is a real highlight for all ages and one of our favourite spots. It is one of the few peaks that can be climbed with young children in order to then enjoy the unique mountain panorama from the summit cross. But that's not all: back at the top station the Lauserland children’s mountain top adventure playground is waitng to be explored.
Those more drawn towards nature will of course find ideal showpieces. To really switch off and unwind we recommend Lake Zirein – a remarkable natural highlight in the rugged Rofan Range with a panorama to "bow down" before and relax at.Find out more about our favourite places
Discover cultural highlights & traditions
Would you like to get to know the region and its people better? Then you've come to the right place, because there is plenty to explore in the ten villages of the Alpbachtal. Take the Museum of Tyrolean Farmhouses, for example, which invites you to embark on a journey into the region’s past. On a leisurely walk through the largest open-air museum in the Tyrol you experience first-hand how the farmers lived back then. There is also an exciting children's programme and a quiz rally, promising fun for the whole family
From the most beautiful village to the smallest town in Austria: Alpbach is a highlight of any visit due to its unique architecture. The impressive wooden building style characterises the picturesque landscape, while the surrounding mountains complete the gorgeous setting.
Another attraction is the town of Rattenberg, situated on the Inn River. Austria’s smallest town is particularly well-known for its medieval centre and can even be admired from above – from Tyrol’s only accessible church tower.Culture in the Alpbachtal
You guessed it: the Alpbachtal offers everything you could possibly desire in culinary terms too, of course. From award-winning cuisine to traditional home cooking and local specialities, there is plenty to be tasted here.
Numerous farm shops offer regional goods such as sausage, speck, eggs, dairy products, honey and jams to take away straight from the farm. Locally brewed schnapps is a must after mealtimes here, but be warned: it’s not just delicious, but can also have a certain effect.Culinary delights & regional products
