Surrounded by meadows and forests and set against the beautiful backdrop of the Gratlspitz peaks, the fairytale village of Alpbach has lost none of its 'olde worlde' charm with picturesque overhanging eaves and balconies with wonderful flowers. The village is a haven of calm, surrounded by picturesque walking country, from gentle rambles through meadows and woodland to the highest slopes accessed by the Wiedersbergerhorn gondola. There are several shops, restaurants and cafés with flower decked terraces and the village brass band plays regularly throughout the summer, dressed in national costume. The Alpbachtal Seenland Card gives guests free use of all gondolas and buses in the valley, plus free entrance to many local attractions.
Built in Alpbach's traditional chalet style, the small and homely Hotel Berghof has become a favourite with Inghams guests for its warm, relaxed atmosphere. Close to the village centre, it has a popular terrace and easy access to walks.
