About the Alpbachtal
The Alpbachtal is a beautiful valley in the Kitzbühel Alps. It takes its name from the Alpbach stream, which flows through the entire valley. The entrance to the valley is the municipality of Brixlegg. A road from Brixlegg runs through the valley to the parish of Inneralpbach.
In summer the valley is considered a hiking valley; there are also several alpine pastures. In winter, as almost everywhere in Tyrol, ski tourism dominates.
Highlights in the Alpbachtal in summer💥
Alpbach occupies a beautiful location on a sunny plateau at approx. 1.000m above sea level. Thanks to its homogenous architectural style and lovely floral decorations Alpbach was voted “Austria’s most beautiful village”.
You can’t miss the quaint village Reith on a visit to the Alpbachtal. The parish church overlooking the charming lake is definitely well worth visiting.

Dining in the Alpbachtal
- The cosy and informal Jausenstation Zottahof looks down on Alpbach and is renowned for its matchless Kaiserschmarren. The recipe has been handed down from generation to generation and is well-guarded secret. This Kaiserschmarren is not served the traditional chopped up way, but come as a fluffy-sweet large omelette and is served with cranberries. Indescribable – one has to try for oneself! Another house speciality is the “Löffelmilch” – a sweet alcoholic milk beverage – which ingredients are also “top secret”.
