Huts & alpine pastures

Some of the Alpbachtal's architectural traditions are harmoniously integrated into the landscape in the form of well-preserved, rustic huts and alpine pastures. Some of them are still managed, and it is impossible to imagine the Tyrolean mountains without these buildings, many of which are hundreds of years old. The culinary delicacies on the menu also represent a long history. Only regional products are served as a classic Alpbachtal hut snack.

Did you already know? Our partner establishments - on the mountain as well as in the valley - also offer excellent and completely regional products.
