Alpbach is regarded as one of the truly classic ski resorts within Austria and with good reason – offering oodles of tradition and character at every turn.
Easily accessible thanks to the short transfer time from Innsbruck, the alpine village not only offers a varied mix of skiing for all abilities, but also acts as the gateway to the many delights of the surrounding area – including the castles of Brixlegg and the medieval town of Rattenburg.

Once named the ‘Most Beautiful Village in Austria’, Alpach is one of those resorts that you’ll want to visit again and again, with the local hospitality and the picture postcard views combining helping to create an first class skiing experience.
On piste, there is skiing for all abilities, with beginners and intermediate level skiers being particularly well catered for.
