Make a holiday rental home or chalet in the Alpbach Valley & Tirol Lake Area, Austria your home away from home

The Alpbach Valley in Austria is not only an impossibly picturesque mountainous area of Austria, but also has some wonderful skiing, which has been highly popular with British tourists for over 50 years.

Things to do on holiday in the Alpbach Valley and Tirol Lake Area, Austria

The traditional ski season in the Alpbach Valley, Austria, starts on the 16th December, marked by the traditional ceremony at the base of the Galtenberg ski lift. There are two main lifts in the Alpbach Valley, giving skiers access to over 50km of pristine pistes of such quality that they have been awarded a “white Oscar” by the ‘Good Skiing and Snowboarding Guide’. The area is particularly good for novices, with learner slopes running throughout the heart of the valley, plenty of ski schools catering for all age groups from snow babies to those deciding to try the sport later on in life. However, experts are still regularly seen heading into the upper reaches of the Alpbach Valley to tackle some of the infamous off-piste and backcountry skiing available throughout the region. There are also over 100km of cross-country trails to be conquered.

Off the pistes, the Alpbach Valley offers some fantastic fun in the snow. There are no less than eight toboggan runs, 200km of winter walking routes, half pipes, plentiful horse drawn sleighs and many chances to go ice-skating.

In the summer months, the chalets in the Alpbach Valley are still in huge demand. There are over 900km of paths in the area, with walkers staying in Alpbach accommodation to explore the whole of the Alpbachtal and Tiroler Seenland area. The mountains which surround the Alpbach Valley offer some amazingly diverse walking, all of which offer stunning views over Tirol. Whether you are looking for slow strolls up gently climbing slopes of dramatic climbs along craggy peaks, a rental chalet in the Alpbach Valley offers all you could wish for.

We were a 20 person family group from 9-83 years old. The location is spectacular and provides not only views and access to great walking, but a remoteness that one can really enjoy - noise levels are not an issue, either received or generated! The Kostenzers very much let you get on with it without any interference and one has free rein to use the Alm however it suits. The Wellness Centre is a great example, where children can freely roam and enjoy, which they did. Margot was our live-in chef who was very good and almost invisible - we didn't even realise she lived there for the first three days... Access is not an issue so long as one appreciates it is up the mountain and one plans a little in advance - in snow, Franz Kostenzer will always get you where you need to be be. For our family, the situation was perfect and it was our best winter holiday yet.

It was ideal, right in the village in a traditional style chalet building. The rooms are a generous size and it was very clean and everything was provided. It was great to have the little garden area where we could sit in the sun after a hard morning's skiing! Alpbach is a lovely location and we plan to return in the future.
