Summer in Austria: Alpbachtal in Tirol

We all hope the current restrictions on travel will be lifted by the return of the summer.  When they are, we should be ready for a holiday to remember...

Experience Alpbach, Austria’s prettiest village, with its traditional wooden houses. Explore the village of Rattenberg and its picturesque medieval pedestrian zone. Tirol’s warmest bathing lakes and Adventure trails for families on Wiedersbergerhorn & Reither Kogel mountains. Located just 40 km from Innsbruck.

Suggested activities to try during your stay:

  • Summiting the Wiedersbergerhorn is a must-do durig your Alpbachtal holiday. From the cable car’s top station, it’s a one-hour hike.
  • The most exciting way to get back down to the valley is the Lauser Sauser Alpine coaster, a two-seater sledge that reaches speeds of up to 140 km/h and includes two 360° twists.
  • Hiring an e-bike to explore the area is a great way to go a little further – guided tours are available too.
  • With just 400 inhabitants, Rattenberg is the smallest historical town in Austria. Visit the castle ruins, nestled above the medieval centre, or watch the glass blowers create remarkable works of art in the town’s main shopping street.
