Reith im Alpbachtal is a real paradise for families and above all children.
Altitude: 640 m asl
Located on a sunny terrace of the Inntal valley, Reith im Alpbachtal has already been mentioned in the 10th century. Today, it is known as family-friendly flower village. The term “family-friendly” is really taken literally, as the offer includes various child-oriented activities. There is for example the “Juppi Kid’s Club” which provides fun and action on five days a week and at the end of your holidays, there is a huge party. Moreover there is “Juppi Magic Forest” at the Reither Kogel hill and the childrens’ park Reith.
In summer active holidays already start in the centre of the village at Lake Reith. A jump into its cool water is the right start for active vacations, or it might also be a good idea after an exhausting tour along the 150 km long network of hiking paths or after a mountain bike tour. Definitely a must-see are the gardens of the Matzen Castle, which is one of the most beautiful and magnificent cultural landscapes in Tyrol. The park with its 200,000 sqm has been layed out in English style, and includes two artificial lakes.
In winter the Alpbachtal valley is an eldorado for those who love winter sports. Some 100 km of cross-country ski tracks snake their way through the fairytale-like winter landscape. Moreover, in the Ski Jewel Alpbachtal Wildschönau, which combines the skiing areas of the Alpbachtal valley and the Wildschönau, there are 109 km of ski slopes to be explored. The Hornlift facility takes experienced skiers on 2,000 m asl, while beginners can risk an attempt on the Reither Kogel hill. What some of you might not know is, that the Alpbachtal valley received a “White Oscar” by “The Good Skiing and Snowboarding Guide” and was declared to be one of the best small skiing areas of whole Europe.
Our recommendation: every autumn there is a farmers’ market, the day when the cattle returns from the mountain pastures. A huge celebration in the village, with culinary delicacies, handicraft and folk music!
