What We Love About Alpbachtal:
In the rustic mountain village of Alpbach, traditional architecture and natural beauty meet like hardly anywhere else. There are probably the strictest building regulations in the whole of Austria here, with beautiful architecture and heritage farms, there is a charming Alpine atmosphere. The Alpbachtal was named Austria’s most beautiful village thanks to its picturesque chalets decorated with colourful flowers set in the middle of the mountains. The valley is situated in a magnificent skiing and walking area in the Tyrol province and is surrounded by mountains and a picturesque countryside with forests and Alpine lakes. Besides offering a fantastic selection of shops, cafes and restaurants, this pretty town is located only a 50 minutes’ drive from the beautiful capital city Innsbruck.
