Alpbach is a picture perfect Austrian town. Situated in Tirol the town has a history spanning 2,500 years but modern development hasn't tarnished the beautiful authentic character of the town. From its sunny plateau at 1,000m Alpbach enjoys stunning views of the surrounding landscape and in winter the nearby mountainsides are transformed into an amazing winter sports playground. The ski area closest to Alpbach is on the Wiedersberger Horn mountain and has around 54km of marked slopes. At village level there's a nice nursery area where novices in Alpbach can gain confidence, and the rest of the ski area is reached by the lifts which are a four minute bus journey from the centre of the town. In addition to the mixed level downhill slopes the area has plenty of untouched powder fields for ski mountaineers to discover, 20km of prepared cross-country ski trails, and loads of routes for hiking and snowshoe walking through the unspoilt countryside. Facilities for families and children include kids ski schools, special lifts for children, and plenty of activities which adults and kids will enjoy like tobogganing, ice skating, and horse drawn sleigh rides. There's also a 40m long half-pipe and a terrain park for freestylers of any age. As an extra bonus during your holiday in Alpbach you can choose to explore the huge Kitzbüheler Alpen ski region. Spanning from Tirol to Salzburg the Kitzbüheler Alpen Allstar ski pass gives you access to seven ski areas and over 1,000km of pistes, as well as almost endless sports facilities and activities. With all of these things to do and areas to explore you'll be happy to return to Alpbach after your action-packed days and take advantage of the relaxing and invigorating facilities in the town. One of the best places to visit is the leisure complex, where you can enjoy the swimming pool, water slides, sauna, solarium, and spa facilities. For après ski in Alpbach you can choose from the many bars on the slopes or in the town, a number of quality restaurants, and throughout the season fun events like yodelling lessons and theatre nights are organised.
