Sustainability Tourism

Alpbachtal green destination

Sustainability is a top priority in the tradition-steeped Alpbachtal. This starts with the arrival and continues with green events and local mobility to the regional product variety on site. As a pioneer for sustainable tourism, we are constantly implementing new measures and obtaining environmental certifications for our local businesses.

Climate friendly to your holiday destination

Are you in a dampened mood due to traffic jams, stress or tension? Not when you travel to us! Your holiday already starts when you leave home. The perfect transport connections allow you to travel comfortably by train. The Alpbachtal Card makes it easier for you to do without your own car, as you can use the train station transfer and the bus lines in the region free of charge. The regional bus network is well developed and brings you to all your destinations in a climate-friendly and uncomplicated way. The ski bus also takes you to the Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau free of charge and sustainably.

Plan your arrival

Certified businesses and green locations

The fact that environmentally conscious tourism is not a contradiction in terms is evident at all levels in Alpbachtal. The green marketing concept of the Congress Centre Alpbach already clearly illustrates our ambitions to become a green destination. We rely on common ground: the Alpbachtal businesses are also committed to environmental protection. Culinary delights, thermal renovations and charging stations for e-bikes and the like are particularly important. Fourteen accommodation establishments have already been awarded the Austrian Ecolabel certificate - and the trend is rising!

Culture, sport and nature sustainably combined

Alpbachtal is particularly known for living its culture at festivals and celebrations. Because sustainability is one of our seven guidelines as a tourism region, we have made it our goal to hold all Alpbachtal Tourismus events as green events.

Our "green" event recommendation: Join the e-bike Gauditour! At this sustainable happening, you pedal ambitiously and explore the most beautiful natural and panoramic spots in Alpbachtal on an electronic bike. As a delicious bonus, you will be spoiled with delicacies from the region along the way.

Worthwhile partnerships for the climate

Nowadays, anyone who wants to act sustainably is motivated to make concrete changes. In this respect, new projects concerning environmental protection are constantly being advanced in the Alpbachtal - and in collaboration. Within the framework of the Climate and Energy Model Region, or "KEM" for short, synergies are formed between the municipality, the tourism association and the mountain railways. Through these partnerships, the topic of sustainability and resource-saving procedures are to be further prioritised.

Regionality you can taste

The people of Alpbachtal know how to appreciate local produce. Culinary products are particularly popular in this idyllic holiday region. The many local businesses and farms provide you with exquisite first-hand delicacies. The Alpbachtal product variety includes savoury specialities such as cheese, sausage and bacon as well as bread. Fruit, vegetables and preserves, beer and spirits can also be found in many varieties.

Regional products

Our Alpbachtal tip:

Look forward to regional shopping pleasure and pick up your favourite products directly where they are produced! Numerous farm-gate and village shops as well as groceries avoid long transport routes by selling home-made products. Nature also benefits from this.
