Due to its uniform and unique architectural style Alpbach has gained some well-deserved titles. It has also been awarded the most beautiful village in Austria and has received the title of the most beautiful flower village in Europe .
The inhabitants are very proud of their flowers. In summer they like to decorate their balconies with many different colorful balcony plants. In winter, they redecorate their terraces and balconies with fir branches.
We are especially proud of our flowers and gardens, too. Not only beautiful to look at but also to feel like a small paradise in the middle of the Alpbach mountains.
Likewise we are very proud of our colourful herb garden. Not only because it´s decorative but you may also find some of our herbs are actually being used in our delicious dishes!
In the neighboring village of Reith, on a 900 m² locals have made an oasis of peace and tranquility: the Hildegard von Bingen- garden is located next to the herbalism and recreation room, together with a massage and barefoot path.
