Winter hiking and sledding – Alpbachtal
There is more than just the piste to amuse....cold temperatures bring other attractions which are just as much fun. Winter walking and sledging are two of them. Wrap up warmly and go forth into our snow filled territories or take your sledge as high as you dare for a wild run to the valley floor. There is no age limit and no previous knowledge required! In Alpbach you are perfectly placed to enjoy it all. Of course, your icing on the cake is a holiday in our hotel where it is all at the front door.
Allow us to give you a taste of what is here. The choice is varied and always breathtaking. A comfortable winter walk at a lower altitude offering awe inspiring views and a living community of working tradtional homes and farmhouses, is the Mittlerer Höhenweg from Inneralpbach to Alpbach. This round tour is about 10,5km long and will take you about 3 hours.
Want to go higher? Then take the Reitherkogel gondola and enjoy the Panoramaweg Reither Kogel. In just a couple of minutes you are at the top where the whole family can enjoy the wonder that awaits you. Our Tip: when the snow allows, take your sledge with you. To sledge down to the valley from the Hinterkoglhof is fun and easy. Your home comforts await you at the Hotel Wiedersbergerhorn.
A delightful winter highligh is a stroll through the romantic arboretum of Matzen Park. The imposing Schloss Matzen is a magnificent backdrop and well worthy of a photograph. It is like something out of a fairytale. In the local restaurant Gut Matzen you can enjoy coffee and cake or an exquisite lunch.
The legendary Berglsteinersee is an especially romantic spot on this earth and in winter appears shrouded in even more mystery. To walk the shores in winter is a great experience that will stay with you forever. Enjoy a break at the very special Restaurant Berglsteinersee.
More winter lake adventure required?.....then don't forget the largest lake in the region the Reintalersee which when the weather allows boasts ice sports such as skating and curling. To walk the shores takes about half an hour and is easy for everyone. When you get back to us, a warm welcome awaits you.

Something special is night sledging. The family sledge run Höllenstein in Münster is lit at night and when the snow cover is right, unforgettable fun by the light of the moon. Fun and romantic: couldn't be better.
Want to take your sledging party to the top of the mountain? No problem, take the Reitherkogel gondola and make the most of the wonderful sledging opportunity on the Panoramaweg. The views alone are worth the ride.
And then there is the best of all, the well lit sledge run in Alpbach from the Bischoferalm where you can enjoy local hospitality and fare with an amazing view, before you head down to the village.
