The outdoor life in Reith im Alpbachtal
The Alpbachtal: a hub of Tyrolean traditions, outdoor pursuits and pristine nature
The Alpbachtal in Tyrol offers unspoiled countryside, fresh mountain air and picturesque beauty. The people of this valley were early to understand that being careful with increasingly scarce environmental resources was not a fashionable luxury but an absolute necessity. This recognition led to the whole region increasingly focusing on the teachings of Hildegard von Bingen and becoming pioneers in eco-driven tourism.
Back to nature with Hildegard von Bingen
The people of Reith are sympathetic to the wisdom and traditional values of times past, so much so that Tyrol’s first Hildegard von Bingen medicinal garden is not far from the Pirchner Hof, where it is looked after with tender loving care by the members of Reith’s Hildegard Association. A visit to this garden allows visitors to experience a holistic approach to life that does not compartmentalise work, leisure, pleasure and relaxation, and thereby simplifies the whole of life. There is an affirmative undertone, a sense of hope, to this village which makes it quite unlike any other place on earth.
On the outskirts of Reith im Alpbachtal – ‘Europe’s most beautiful village in bloom’ – the Pirchner Hof hotel offers the perfect base for year-round holiday experiences, whether it’s discovering nature (or yourself), enjoying gentle exercise or facing sporting challenges, and whether you prefer to head off on your own or be professionally guided, we will provide you with all the assistance you need.
