Alpbach, Austria

With its traditional character Alpbach ski resort has remained one of the most charming villages in the Austrian Tyrol for many years and is the perfect resort of a quiet luxury ski holiday with the family, or perhaps a romantic ski break for two. The strict building regulations which are still in place ensure that Alpbach continues to develop in the traditional, local building style using wide overhanging eaves and carved balconies. Luxury ski holidays in Alpbach will suit those looking for a quiet, relaxing ski holiday as life is unhurried in Alpbach, and après ski and nightlife equally low key. The sleigh ride to the Rossmoos Inn for a warming gluhwein is still as popular as it ever was. It may not be racy or wild but it’s still great fun.

There is a modern indoor swimming pool complex in the resort and over 30km of cleared winter walking trails so there is plenty for the non skier to do on a luxury ski holiday in Alpbach - it really is a winter wonderland of a resort. The hotels in Alpbach are located in the village centre which is a short, free bus ride away from ski area. This area which used to be a little limiting for adventurous skiers now links with the resort of Wildschonau giving nearly 150km of combined pistes (the Ski Juwel area). With good mountain restaurants and an unhurried style skiing in Alpbach is a real pleasure - no surprise then that it is hugely popular with 'well to do' families during the peak holiday weeks. Of the luxury ski hotels in Alpbach we recommend the 4 star Hotel Boglerhof which has a great new spa area and always delivers on customer service.

Alpbach is perfect for those looking for a charming, quiet winter ski holiday. The ski school has a good reputation and has a high proportion of English speaking instructors.
