Hiking in autumn
Walking boots on - world off!
Hike along the picturesque paths that lead you through dense forests, past clear mountain lakes and over gentle alpine pastures to high peaks. The crackling of leaves under your feet accompanies you on your journey, while the scent of damp earth and fresh autumn air invigorates your senses.
Autumn time = pure pleasure time in the Alpbachtal!
Autumn in the Alpbachtal is colourful, diverse, golden and above all: enjoyable. The culinary variety at this time of year is at least as colourful as the splendour of colours in nature. Look forward to regional specialities in the rustic huts and eateries in the Alpbachtal. Soak up the dreamlike views of the autumnal blaze of colour in the mountains and the golden rays of the sun on your face. The Alpbachtaler Hüttenjause provides the best products from our local producers, served on the original "Tirol Pur" wooden platter.

Hiking into late autumn
The two summer mountain lifts in the Alpbachtal take you up high the mountains. The mountain gondola lifts in Alpbach are open until 6th November. A gondola ride up the Wiedersberger Horn in Alpbach offers fantastic mountain panoramic views and the hike up to the peak is a mere 45 minutes. On the Reither Kogel, which can also be reached by the summer mountain lift, a family-friendly looped hiking trail awaits visitors.
The sunniest peaks & hiking trails
The Alpbachtal is a hikers paradise. Between rugged mountain tops and lovely grass hills, 30 huts cater to the hungry and thirsty.
A special tip in autumn, is a hike to the sunny Voldöpper Spitze peak. The 1,506m high mountain promises unique views over the Rofan Range and an unforgettable mountain top experience. In general, in spring the approach from Kramsach is mostly snow-free. The trail leading from Brandenberg often has snow lying on the ground. Therefore, in spring we commend the slightly longer ascent from Kramsach as it is more exposed to the sun!
The loop tour to the Farmkehralm in Alpbach is a hikers pure alpine delight. The rustic hut in the Greiter Valley is easily reached via the Jagdsteig in 1,5 hours. An alternative is the Breitenbacher Almenwanderung - a long, but still very sunny loop tour passing alpine pastures and providing magnificent views.
Those who prefer shorter tours and walks in autumn are spoilt for choice in the Alpbachtal:
The easy hike to natures jewel - Lake Berglstein - is a perfect tour for the whole family and is ideal for inbetween seasons. Highlights are the Easy Learning Path, the mystical atmosphere on the lake and more. A walk in Matzen Park is impressive and full of variety. This picturesque grounds are one of the most beautiful and most valuable cultural landscapes in the Tyrol.
The popular Alpbach Nature & Heritage Trail leads along sunny trails, offers exciting insights into the village's history and interesting facts about the flora and fauna. A must for every Alpbachtal holiday!
