Reith im Alpbachtal

Located on the sunny terrace of the Inn Valley, the village of Reith stretches far into the Alpbachtal valley

Altitude: 640 m a.s.l.

Reith im Alpbachtal is an old settlement which has already been mentioned in the 10th century. The village has kept its rustic charm, which emerges every year in autum, when the Reith Farmers' Market takes place, the day when the cattle returns after the summer on the mountain pastures - a huge celebration in the village, with culinary delicacies, handicraft and folk music.

Its designation as Family Village is taken literally here, as the offer includes various child-oriented activities. The Juppi Kids' Club provides fun and action for families in the nature with the mascots Kasimir and Juppi. Furthermore you can find Juppi's Enchanted Forest at the mountain station of the Reitherkogel Cable Car, a circular path in an enchanted forest, and the Reith Children's Park in the valley, featuring minigolf, a trampoline and some animals.

In summer, active holidays already start in the centre of the village at Lake Reith, which invites you to a jump into its cool waters. Definitely a must-see is also the garden of Matzen Castle, which is one of the most beautiful and magnificent cultural landscapes in Tyrol. It has been layed out in English style. In winter, however, the Alpbachtal valley is an eldorado for those who love winter sports: Some 70 km of cross-country ski tracks snake their way through the fairytale-like winter landscape. Moreover, the Ski Jewel Alpbachtal Wildschönau awaits you with 113 km of ski slopes.
