Savour hearty snacks in a tranquil Alpine hut, sample Tyrolean delights in local inns or try melt-in-the-mouth specialities in award-winning restaurants - all in the small village of Alpbach. Homemade schnapps is a local delicacy so make sure you order some with your meal. Being a small resort, there isn’t loads of choice, but that also means you never have to walk very far to find somewhere to stop for a coffee.
In the centre of Alpbach is the rustic Austrian pub Postalm Alpbach, with indoor and outdoor seating and a lively atmosphere. They occasionally have Tyrolean bands playing.
Up in the mountains next to the main gondola you’ll find Dauerstoa Alm, boasting a large decking area with sun loungers – ideal for admiring the fantastic views and watching the world go by. Their cakes are also sublime.
A short walk from the town centre is Café Genuss, a pretty little café with friendly staff and a charming atmosphere. Great for breakfast, lunch or just a slice of cake, the café also has an adjoining shop selling beautiful homewares and gifts.
There are enough routes around Alpbach to interest every level of walker. Start with easy paths through the valley and meadows and then head up to more challenging hikes up in the mountains.
The nearest station is in Brixlegg, which can be reached by bus. Trains run east to Kundl Gorge (6 minutes). Heading west, there are trains to Jenbach (10 minutes), the Schwaz silver mines (15 minutes) and Wattens for Swarovski Crystal World (25 minutes). Trains also go south towards Mayrhofen and the cog railway goes to Achensee.
The bus service between the villages in the valley is easy to use and is free with your Alpbachtal Seenland Card.
The lifts in the area run from late May/early June to October.
