Even if in autumn some mountain peaks are already covered with a light blanket of snow, the pleasant temperatures and the colorful natural landscapes still lure us to the heights for autumn hiking. Thanks to the optimal location and pleasant temperatures, some beautiful places in the Alpbachtal can still be hiked long into autumn. We reveal the most beautiful destinations for a colorful hiking season in the Alpbachtal!
Autumn in the Alpbach Valley is colourful, diverse, golden and above all: enjoyable. Because the culinary offerings at this time of year are at least as colourful as the splendour of colours in nature. Look forward to regional specialities in the rustic huts and snack stations in the Alpbachtal, with a dreamlike view of the autumnal blaze of colour in the mountains, the golden rays of the sun on your face. With the Alpbachtaler Hüttenjause you enjoy the best products from our local producers, served on the original "Tirol Pur" wooden board.

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 autumn the approach from Kramsach is mostly snow-free. The trail leading from Brandenberg often has snow lying on the ground. Therefore, in autumn 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 along the Jagdsteig in 1,5 hours. An alternative is the Breitenbacher Almenwanderung - a long, but still very sunny autumnal loop tour passing alpine pastures and providing magnificent views.
