A Winter Day in Alpbachtal
Spend the morning skiing and enjoy the stunning views from the Schatzberg mountain, right next to the top station of the Alpbachtal gondola. For lunch, stop off at the Böglalm Hut, the most traditional hut in the valley.
Choose from 19 panoramic winter walking routes, 14 cross-country trails and 4 snow-shoe hiking routes. Soak up the peaceful snowy scenery and walk past rustic wooden mountain huts.
Thanks to the floodlights, you can go tobogganing by night in Reith/ Alpbachtal two nights a week.
A Summer Day in Alpbachtal
Take the gondola or try a one hour hike up the Wiedersbergerhorn mountain and soak up spectacular views over some of Austria’s highest peaks. Two huts offering refreshments and a fun mountain-top playground for kids await. The “Lauser Sauser” coaster offers a fun way to whizz back down the mountain – reaching speeds of up to 42 kmph.
For a more challenging walk, follow the trail from the Wiedersbergerhorn up to the Standkopf (2,239m) for the most spectacular views.
