Snow holidays in the Alpbach Valley

The winter wonderland of the Alpbach Valley: unforgettable winter holidays in Tyrol. The perfect base for your snow holidays? The Pirchner Hof!

Mellow winter holidays in Tyrol

‘Snowshoeing through trees crowned with white, tobogganing down into the valley or drawing fresh tracks in the snow with your touring skis are experiences you will never forget. Ski Juwel Alpbachtal offers brilliantly groomed slopes and the Luegergraben is perfect for ski touring enthusiasts. Here you can be challenged and also experience tranquillity – life’s pendulum!’ Christa and Wolfgang Peer, hosts of the first dedicated Hildegard of Bingen hotel, the 4-star Pirchner Hof in Reith in the Alpbach Valley, understand the magic and many facets of the surrounding winter landscape. Experience winter in all its glory with 109km of brilliantly groomed pistes in the Alpbachtal Wildschönau ski resort with snowy treetops, snowmen, igloos and rustic mountain huts. With a choice of winter hiking, snowshoeing, ski touring, tobogganing, ice skating or romantic horse-drawn sleigh rides, anything is possible on a winter holiday in Tyrol's Alpbach Valley. The Pirchner Hof is surrounded by a glorious playground of snow-covered mountains suitable for the whole family. Picturesque winter holidays.

Touring and snowshoeing on your winter holiday

Pure nature – ski touring in the Alpbachtal Seenland is a special experience. Inneralpbach is a true paradise for ski touring enthusiasts. Our region offers ideal ski tours for beginners through to more challenging tours, including the Grosser Galtenberg, the highest mountain in the district of Kufstein. We recommend: every Tuesday from 1 January to 5 March 2019, the family slope in the Reither Kogel resort is illuminated especially for ski touring enthusiasts. An evening of ski touring on the Pirchner Hof's doorstep! Another unforgettable experience for anyone who enjoys spending their winter holiday in unspoilt nature is snowshoeing or winter hiking. The fresh air, the tranquillity – you really couldn’t ask for more from an idyllic, peaceful holiday in the snow. The surroundings truly do call nature lovers outdoors.

Tip: the region offers free guided snowshoeing three times a week! Join us and enjoy the breathtaking mountainscape on your winter holiday in the Alpbach Valley – such a special place!
