Abfaltersbach

The holiday village Abfaltersbach is located on the sunny side of the East Tyrolean Alps.

Altitude: 982 m asl

The name of the village derives from the term “Affoltrupach”, which since 1160 AD has defined an ancient settlement. Abfaltersbach stands for an enchanting holiday village and decorative farmhouses as well as a range of traditions. The choir “Frauensingkreis”, “Belcanto” and the church choir give concerts on a regular basis.

From June to September there is a special highlight for visitors, which is the Aigner Badl spa, that has been acknowledged by the University of Innsbruck as a mineral spring. This water excerts a beneficial effect on the body, especially when suffering from joint pain, rheuma and sciatica. Also faith healing effects have been attributed to this water. The historical Tyroleran farmers’ bath is in operation since 1772 AD and visitors still take a bath in a larch bathtub with lid. Afterwards make a stop in the neighbouring tavern “Aigner Badl”. Refreshment for body and palate basically!

In case you would also like to excercise in your holidays, in Abfaltersbach you can choose from a range of hiking and walking paths in the surroundings of the Hochpustertal valley or the Drau cycle path, which takes cyclers to South Tyrol/Italy. Moreover in winter there is the ice rink as well as the ski center Sillian - Hochpustertal, offering 22.5 km of ski slopes. The lift facilities Hochpustertaler Bergbahnen take you on the Thurntaler mountain.

Our recommendation: beside the Aigner Badl spa you have to take a look at another building in Abfaltersbach: the glaze crusher! First in this building there has been the stove-fitter company Steger, persueing this profession since 1654 AD.
